Pediatric Care​

In-Person Appointments: Call our 24/7 Contact Center at 713-442-0000 to schedule an appointment with a Kelsey-Seybold Pediatrician at a Clinic location near you.  To protect our patients and employees, we have implemented new screening and face mask guidelines for all patients and visitors. Learn more and prepare for your visit.
Important Information for Children with In-Clinic Appointments
​Preparing for your child's appointment
  • Our Pediatrics care team will be wearing face masks, so please let your children know in advance.
  • All family members will be screened, and their temperature taken upon entry into the clinic.
  • We ask that you and your children older than 2 wear a mask (homemade face masks or other cloth masks are fine) when you arrive at the clinic for your scheduled appointment. Please limit the number of family members attending the visit to as few as possible.
  • ​Proceed directly to your Pediatrics waiting area. We strongly suggest you consider using our convenient online eCheck-in process through the MyChart or MyKelsey app as you arrive onsite at the clinic.

We are increasing in-person appointment availability at our Clinic locations and strongly recommend if your child is due for a vaccine or critical exam that their care not be delayed. Please refer to well-child checkup recommendations below for guidance on in-person check-ups during your child's first year. If your child is sick and experiencing any of the following (fever, diarrhea, cough, or nasal symptoms), please schedule a Video Visit first.
