About the Medical Clinic

We love kids!!!

At Children’s Clinic of El Paso we are committed to outstanding care of kids for twenty three years now ( and counting!), from newborns until they “don’t wanna be called a kid anymore” . Through the first diaper change through the homework years, the varsity stints and glorious recitals, till happy graduations and the hopeful trek to college, we are here too for the ouchy times in between, for the moments when “I don’t feel so well”.

Preventive care is the cornerstone of our practice. We strive to stop, look and listen to the children’s needs and use evidence-based management of their health problems.

Providing you with the best care
