Pediatric Care You Can Trust

Our Pediatric Care goal is to work with families to help them make informed decisions regarding their child’s journey.

Our mission at Health Services of North Texas has always been to make life better for our patients. We provide a collaborative care team at Denton Medical Center and Wylie Children’s Medical Clinic that supports the patient and family needs before, during and after their visit. Dr. Jackson reminds his patients to “look beyond the minute to minute and enjoy the child as a developing person with awe and wonder that development brings with it.”

Having a medical home for your child is important. When your child has a medical home from providers who know your child’s family medical history and has a relationship with your family, it can provide for better care and health outcomes. We accept Medicaid, CHIP, most Medical Insurance and offer a sliding fee scale.

Our Denton pediatric providers: Dr. Greg Jackson and Pediatric Nurse Practitioners Joe Hallock & Sonja Estep

Our very own pediatrician, Dr. Greg Jackson, has created this very helpful and informative guide for some of the most commonly asked questions about new babies.  View the Newborn Guide online or ask for a copy at your next pediatric visit.


Recommended Immunizations

CDC Recommended Vaccine Schedule from birth to age 6.
CDC Recommended Vaccine Schedule Ages 0-18 Years.

Make sure you keep up-to-date personal vaccine records. Ask the doctor or nurse to record each vaccine given on your child’s immunization record and write down the name of the doctor’s office or clinic. You can get an immunization tracking card from your child’s doctor or from your state health department to keep a record of your child’s vaccines. Or, you can use CDC’s Immunization Tracker to record your children’s immunizations, developmental milestones, and growth from birth through 6 years old.

When you keep track of your child’s vaccines:

Keep your child’s immunization record in a safe place where you can easily locate it.
Bring the record to each of your child’s doctor visits.
Ask the doctor or nurse to record the vaccine given, date, and dosage on your child’s immunization record.
Note where your child got the shot – knowing at which doctor’s office or clinic your child received a vaccine will help you get official records when you need them.

 


Should I Call the Doctor?
