Hometown Pediatrics Welcomes New Pediatrician, Dr. Davis!

Beginning October 17, 2022, Dr. Justin Davis, another board-certified pediatrician, will join Hometown Pediatrics! Dr. Davis received his medical degree in 2006 from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School in Dallas. After graduation, he completed the pediatrics residency and served as chief resident at The University of Alabama at Birmingham before moving to Kansas City, where he completed the fellowship in pediatric emergency medicine at Children’s Mercy Hospital. Afterward, he joined the faculty at University of Mississippi Medical Center, where he served most recently as Associate Professor and Director of Research in pediatric emergency medicine. Dr. Davis is board certified in Pediatrics and Pediatric Emergency Medicine. As a native Texan, former Texas A&M Aggie and Woodlands Highlander, Dr. Davis was excited to move back to The Woodlands in 2017 with his wife (also a physician) and two daughters. He joined the faculty of Baylor College of Medicine and continued his medical practice in Mississippi for several years before joining Hometown Pediatrics.
 
We are currently booking appointments for Dr. Davis beginning October 17th, feel free to call and schedule.

Flu Shots For Kids And Parents!

The flu virus is common and unpredictable, and it can cause serious complications and death, even in healthy children. The influenza immunization each year is the best way to protect children. If you choose not to vaccinate your child, you not only miss the opportunity to protect your own child but also can put others at risk. Although influenza can be treated with antiviral medications, these drugs are less effective if not started early, can be expensive, and may have bothersome side effects.
Please protect your precious little ones by calling to set up an appointment while supplies last!
