Dr. Padma Bala has the following 1 specialty

  • Pediatrics

    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.

Great Pediatrician

Dr. Bala is wonderful! After moving to Dallas, years ago, I was desperately looking for a good Doctor for my 3 small children. I had been through at least 4, at that point. I was very unimpressed with not only the way most doctors rushed us in and out, but also the way they spoke to us. When Dr. Bala walked into the room, she scooped up my newborn in her arms and hugged on her while she spoke to me and asked all kinds of questions about our family. I really got a sense that she cared about people. We have been going there for 8 years and my children love her. Once when my middle child was having some problems and she was leaving the country for a vacation the following day, she not only offered me her cell phone number, but she also stayed on the phone making arrangements for us until her plane left the ground.
