Texas Children's Pediatrics Palm Center

Texas Children’s Pediatrics Palm Center (formally Texas Children's Pediatrics Cullen) is a community-based collaborative health and wellness project that provides an accessible medical home to children and families. We provide ongoing community and organizational support for family-focused health services that address the broad social, health, educational and spiritual needs of children. At Texas Children’s Pediatrics Palm Center, we are dedicated to the health and well-being of children from birth through adolescence.

At Texas Children’s Pediatrics Palm Center, we prefer to see patients on an appointment basis, but we do accept walk-ins for established patients.


Community Cares Program

As part of its goal to build a community of healthy children, Texas Children's Pediatrics Community Cares Program provides trusted, high-quality pediatric medical services for children who otherwise would seek care from emergency rooms or possibly go without care or treatment due to low family incomes and/or lack of health insurance. Regardless of the family’s financial situation, the Community Cares Program provides healthcare to children from birth to age 18 and offers the opportunity to develop a trusting, long-term relationship with a board certified pediatrician.

Billing Information

Payment for medical services can be made by cash, personal check or credit card and is due at the time of service. It is the parent or guardian's responsibility to pay any deductible, co-pay or co-insurance required by the insurance provider. As a courtesy, our office will file claims with any of our Texas Children's Pedatrics-contracted insurance plans. Please bring your insurance card to every visit.

For more information about billing and payment practices, please view our financial policy.
