Personal Statement

Dr. Jimenez believes patient care is best done as team approach. Families are invaluable members of our care team. Compassionate and comprehensive care is what we strive to provide. A child deserves not just excellent medical care, but a holistic approach to health.

Teaching our learners, medical students or residents, is a passion shared by those in academic medicine. It is a privilege to help shape the future of our profession, not just by teaching, but my mentoring as well.

Dr. Jimenez's primary interests include child development, including learning disabilities, Autism Spectrum Disorders, and premature infant follow up.Her primary practice is located in the Pediatric and Adolescent Health Center in Pearland, TX. She works closely with physicians in training, while serving the needs of children and families in the Harris County Hospital District.
