Welcome to Our Practice

We are the private pediatric practice of Dr. Heena Thakkar and Dr. Shilpa Pankaj conveniently located in the Houston Heights area. We are both Board Certified and are Fellows of the American Academy of Pediatrics. We Accept Medicaid.

Let our family care for your growing one

Our mission is to provide you with the absolute best in pediatric care. We understand that as pediatricians, we are more than doctors – we are partners in your child’s health. We strive to treat each and every patient as if they were our very own family. We are dedicated to meeting the healthcare needs of our patients with our three pillars: quality, integrity, and service.

Unique mother-daughter pediatric team

What sets us apart is that we offer both the seasoning and expertise of over 4 decades of experience, combined with the energy and enthusiasm of a younger physician. Dr. Thakkar and Dr. Pankaj both feel as though they learn so much from working with each other. They also continually strive to remain up to date on the most recent guidelines and evidence-based practices in pediatrics, including some of the following below:

A legacy of exceptional pediatric care for generations of patient families since 1975

Dr. Thakkar has been practicing in the Houston Heights area for over four decades. We have so many families that have grown up with her and now bring their own children and grandchildren to see both Dr. Thakkar and Dr. Pankaj. It’s those types of long-term relationships that we value greatly, and that makes our practice so special.

Caring for tiny babies, toddlers, tots, and teens

We provide complete pediatric preventative and sick care for children from birth to age 21. We value that our physician-patient relationship starts from the very first hours after birth well through the teen years and sometimes longer! We take that responsibility and relationship seriously, and we feel honored and privileged to participate in the care of your child.
