Elizabeth Walenz | MD Pediatrician
Methodist Physicians Clinic Regency
Dr. Walenz answers your questions about child health and parenting.
Dr. Walnez loves seeing kids grow and helping them lead a long healthy life. She is especially interested in nutrition, growth and development.
She believes in a team approach when caring for children. She thinks it is important to listen to the patient, the parents as well as her health care team when deciding the best care for her patients.
She always tries to talk to the children directly and ask them how they are feeling. As her patients get older they may have questions about their bodies, school or friends that they don't want to ask in front of their parents. To help kids feel more comfortable, sometimes she tries to talk to them without mom or dad in the exam room. She can get honest answers about how kids are feeling and what is happening in their lives.
