Dr. Parr's Care Philosophy

Treating children is very different from treating adults. A child's body is constantly changing, and pediatricians must concern themselves with caring for the whole child. A child's health today can have a profound impact on their future development. The doctors and staff at UPA are engaged in promoting not only the physical well-being of children, but their mental and social health as well. At the same time, we keep track of growth, family, school, friends and anything else that might affect a child's overall health.

    Houston, TX |
    They do not inform patients of policy changes and now I have to go to a urgent care facility because they did not inform me of the changes. I love 40 minutes out of town so I have to go pick them up and th ten come back home to get ready for a 5am-rpm shift. Just because they can not code right. And I can not go see the doctor 5 times a year with my child. ai am a single parent who just hurt her back.This is not the first time something like this ha happened. It takes me three days to get me
