Children's Medical Center offers several MyChildren's Primary Care practices in the Plano and McKinney neighborhoods. Currently there are 16 MyChildren's practices throughout the North Texas area.
MyChildren's offices are located close to where patients live, providing convenient access to well and sick visits, as well as providing immunizations, asthma management, nutrition counseling, social work and behavioral health, all in one convenient location.
To ensure patient's families have round-the-clock access to address their healthcare concerns about their child, MyChildren's provides after hours nurse advice with providers on-call to assist families with more urgent medical needs. Additionally, many locations offer evening and/or weekend hours.
MyChildren's is making it easier for parents to manage their children's health in one convenient location wherever they live throughout North Texas.
