Pediatric Practice Association

Healthy Children Happy Families

                                                Serving the lower Rio Grande Valley since 2002

 Pediatric Practice Association provides services to the population of Starr and Zapata county, TX. Recently we have set up a team of highly qualified individuals that consists of P.I, clinical research coordinator, clinical research associates, phlebotomists and sub investigator for conducting the research studies at one of the four rural clinics we operate.

We have access to a database of more than 20000 children age 1-18 with a variety of medical conditions. Our offices provide care to more than 200 patients per day which gives us an advantage of recruiting the subjects easily.
Our areas or interest are Childhood (Asthma, Obesity, Diabetes, constipation, ADHD, Autism and generalized anxiety). The site has 5 patient exam rooms, on-site laboratory with refrigerated and regular centrifuges, ECG machine, crash cart, oxygen, emergency medication, secured long term storage area, temperature controlled, camera controlled drug room and refrigerator, -20 and -70 degree freezers, calibrated scale and calibrated blood pressure cuffs. The site has access to X-Ray equipment during regular business hours.
