About Us

Our Story

Southwest Pediatrics was formed in 2001 by Drs. Jolet, Patil and Rimer. Dr. Wagner joined us in 2011, Dr. Chapa in 2015, and Dr. White in 2018.  Our Pediatric Nurse Practitioner, Julia York, joined us in 2019.  Our goal has always been to provide a place where patients receive outstanding care in a very personal setting – a place kids are very comfortable and where parents are confident in the care their children receive. We are privileged to be your partner as we work together to keep your child healthy from birth through adolescence, working through medical, behavioral and academic issues. All our physicians are Board Certified by the American Board of Pediatrics and are Fellows of the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Perhaps our favorite part of practicing Pediatrics is the opportunity to build relationships with our patients and their families as they grow. It is a privilege to truly be your partner, joining your intimate understanding of your child with our professional training and experience.   We have been in practice long enough to see the same baby brought in for their first visit in an infant carrier head off to college and careers, driving their own car to an appointment.  It’s incredibly gratifying.

All our physicians are Board Certified by the American Board of Pediatrics and are Fellows of the American Academy of Pediatrics.  Our practice is physician-owned and independent.  We are proud, founding members of Austin Health Partners, a collaboration between independent physician practices designed to provide exceptional care and a wide variety of services usually reserved for large, medical corporations.

You choose a primary pediatrician that you think will be the best fit to care for your children, and we will make every effort to have your child see that physician for all visits. View more information on our specific providers here.
