I polled over 350 Frisco area moms and asked who their favorite pediatrician office was and why....and here's what they had to say.
One of the things on an expecting mom's to do list is to choose a pediatrician for their newborn while they are still pregnant. So how do you know who to trust with your new baby?
The question I posed to Frisco moms was "Please take a moment to vote next to your favorite pediatrician's office. Please add an office you love if you don't see your favorite in the list so that others can vote next to it." I wanted to be sure that none of their favorite pediatrician offices were excluded. Over 25 pediatric offices were nominated for the vote.
Now, some of the votes included offices in Plano, so I will mention them at the end of this article, but for these purposes, they are not factored into the direct results. Of the 350 votes, pediatrician offices with fewer than 10 votes or who do not have a Frisco address are not shown on the chart.
1. CENTENNIAL PEDIATRICS
Address: 5560 Independence Parkway, Frisco, TX 75035
With almost one third of the votes, Centennial Pediatrics was an obvious fan favorite. With a team of ten pediatricians and an additional location in Little Elm next to the western part of Frisco, Centennial Pediatrics makes it convenient for parents to have their newborn or child's needs met.
Here is what a moms had to say about Centennial Pediatrics:
"I love Dr Newton at Centennial! I love how he respects my natural ways but he also will not put a child on antibiotics unless absolutely necessary! No mom guilt for declining the flu vaccine! I love that they ALWAYS get you in for a sick visit same day! Great staff and very friendly! 😍THAT can make or break your practice and more offices need to understand that!" -- Cassie S.
"Ever since switching to centennial i haven’t waited in the wait room longer than 5 mins or 10 mins in the patient room. They are on top of their scheduling and everyone is SO nice.For example, today I had my daughters well visit and I showed up 10 mins early. I hadn’t even been there 30 seconds and they call us back and within 5-10 mins we saw our doctor. And all of the doctors I’ve seen have been great. They actually listen to me, they’re great with my kids, and talk with me instead of at me." -Jenny B.
"We see McClendon at Centennial and she has called us after hours to check on our kids and stayed after hours once to see my little when she was sick ❤️ she always ends our visits with a hug and a "you're doing amazing"" - Jenn C.
2. BEST NEST PEDIATRICS
Address: 4040 Legacy Drive #201, Frisco, Texas 75034
With an all female pediatrician team, Best Nest's practice is unique. Reading all of the reviews about how the Frisco moms love Best Nest only attests to how personal their team of caregivers are.
Here is what a few Frisco mom's said about Best Nest during the vote:
"Dr. Terry (and alllll the docs) at Best Nest!!!!!! 1000000000%" --Holly D
"Nurse Laurie (the on-call nurse) at Best Nest is AMAZING- the best ever! She goes way above and beyond to help with referrals, insurance crap, getting answers, communicating with the Dr., and is super quick to call back. And oh so sweet. We were just in New York and my daughter couldn’t stop vomiting. She got the dr to approve the prescription, called in Zofran to a New York pharmacy for us immediately and we were back in business. Love her (and thus Best Nest) so much! And there are no fees to call her. 🙂" --Melissa H.
"We LOVE Best Nest for all those reasons as well! From the doctors to the nurses to the office staff everyone is fantastic! It puts our mind at ease knowing that we have the Best Nest group in our corner through parenthood (whether it be sickness or just wellness appts)! We always feel like Dr Terry picks up right where we left off and really knows our children!" --Kayla J.
3. pediatric people
Phone: (214) 396-5200
Address: 11955 Dallas Pkwy #400, Frisco, TX 75033
Any mom panics when their child is sick on the weekend and they don't have somewhere to take their child. Luckily, Pediatric People offer services to clients 7 days a week!
"Love this pediatricians office! Clean, friendly staff and amazing doctors! If you're looking for a pediatrician look no further! 100% recommended!" - Rachel G.
4. SHINE PEDIATRICS AND WELLNESS CENTER
Address: 3535 Victory Group Way Suite# 305, Frisco, TX 75034
What sets Shine Pediatrics and Wellness Center apart from the other pediatricians is that their motto is that they offer "holistic principles with natural and conventional approaches". They have a large team of pediatricians that are available to support a more natural approach to caring for children.
Here is what a mom said when they recommended Shine Pediatrics:
"We LOVE Shine. So thankful to find a pediatric group that is naturally minded but will apply conventional medicine when necessary. My child was terrified of doctor's offices before we switched to Shine. Everyone in the Frisco office is friendly, patient, with excellent bedside manner. I hope to keep our kiddo with Shine until he is 18!' Adedoyin A.
Northwest Plano recommendations
Even though the survey I took was for Frisco, a couple of area pediatric offices in Plano were also praised!
