Dr. Heather B Brandon has the following 1 specialty
A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

I have two boys who both see Dr. Brandon. My youngest son has had several CRAZY diagnosis and Dr. Brandon has always been very good at running all of the tests needed until she gets to the bottom of what's going on. She has also been great at making referrals and making sure to follow up. I wouldn't trust any other doctor with my boys! We honestly believe that her quick diagnosis of one disease saved my son's life, even when the ER and a Texas Med Clinic were unable to diagnose him when he got sick over the weekend. She saw him first thing Monday morning and he was hospitalized and getting needed treatments by the end of that day.
So not only having to take my daughter to the urgent care center because pedidocs failed to let us know in advance they had moved and caused us to miss the apt but now I've been trying to get my 1 yr old in and its 2:20pm and they apparently aren't back from lunch yet even though their own website states 1:15!! Will be taking my children elsewhere from now on.
Absolutely the BEST ped doc we have EVER seen. I have 4 children ranging from 11 to 3 months and we have had many ped docs due to be ing military and I must say that this is the best ped practice we have ever had. Dr Brandn was so friendly and took her time with our family making sure we were taken care of. One thing we loved was that they have two waiting areas, one for sick kids and one for well kids, this is awesome as I just had a baby and I did not want him around sick kids. The waiting are was awesome and the decor was kid friendly Disney and fun. We did not have to wait long at all and the staff was great too. I cant say enough good things about Dr Brandon, just that we are so greatful to have found her and as long as we are here in San Antonio we will not go anywhere else!
My daughter had a 104 fever, vomiting, and complaining of headaches. We drove across town for her appt there. When I advised receptionist that her insurance had changed, she stated that they do accept that insurance but they had to confirm w/ Dr. Brandon if she was willing to see her w/ that insurance. Dr. Brandon refused to see her dispite the fact that she was very ill. She has a secondary insurance and I asked if they could just use that insurance instead. Receptionist refused to even ask the Dr. about that. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS OFFICE TO ANYONE. DR BRANDON OBIVOUSLY DOESN'T CARE ABOUT THE WELL BEING OF ILL PATIENTS BUT ONLY ABOUT WHAT INSURANCE THEY "WANT" TO ACCEPT. BEWARE MOTHERS!!!
