Dr. Julia T Hodge 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.

Dr. Hodge has been our pediatrician since the birth of our first child. My first visit with a newborn I pulled out a long list of questions and she took the time to answer each and every one without making me feel rushed. She has worked with us through all the asthma and allergy problems of both children. My kids never fear visits with her which says a lot. Her bedside manner is terrific as well as her pragmatic approach to medicine. When we moved we decided to make the 30 minute drive just to keep her as our pediatrician. Now she is 45 minutes away after another move and we still make the drive to see her. Highly recommend!
Our son loves Dr. Hodge and never fears going to see her. The staff is wonderful, warm and very caring. We moved to Little Elm from Lewisville and still commute to Lewisville when we have to visit. When we have the emergency visit and are unable to see her, the other doctors make sure that he feels just as cared for :)
My 2 year old has been using Dr. Hodge since he was born. We moved when he was 1 and tried to find a doctor located closer to our new house. After trying 3 new doctors, we returned to Dr. Hodge. She is the best around so we will continue to drive 45 minutes to see her when needed.
