Texas Children's Pediatrics Austin Pediatrics

About Us

At Texas Children's Pediatrics Austin Pediatrics, we consider it both a great joy and responsibility to care for children. Most of us at Austin Pediatrics are parents ourselves, so we strive to be understanding and available to the families we are privileged to serve. We always feel honored when you chose us as your child's primary medical provider and are confident that you will be pleased with the quality of care and service that we can provide you and your family.

Austin Pediatrics loves taking care of newborns, while still providing pediatric care for all age groups. Our pediatric services include performing well child care or checkups, giving immunizations, providing same day urgent care appointments, managing asthmatics, managing ADD and/or ADHD, and managing many other common pediatric conditions. We also provide courtesy pre-natal and introductory physician consultations.

Your child's health is as important to us as it is to you. We look forward to providing you with the excellent medical care your child deserves. A vital part of our service to children begins with our outstanding staff who works hard to maintain a professional, caring, and supportive environment for our patients.

Austin Pediatrics is unique because it is a solo pediatric practice, managed by Dr. Mulcihy. This means your child gets one-on-one care, with the same doctor at every visit, and Dr. Mulcihy gets to build rapport with every family. Even though this is a solo practice, Austin Pediatrics is able to provide 24/7 coverage for after hours emergencies, through a network of other solo pediatricians in Austin.

Dr. Mulcihy has received advanced medical training in pediatrics; he continually pursues medical education in pediatrics to stay up to date on the latest in child healthcare advances. He has over 30 years of experience in caring for children, including his own. The staff at Austin Pediatrics are parents also, with many years of experience in caring for children as well. With all this experience, Austin Pediatrics can say “We Understand Kids.”
