About Us

About Us

Southwest Pediatrics was formed in 2001 by Drs. Jolet, Patil and Rimer. Dr. Wagner joined us in 2011 and Drs. Powell in 2015.  We opened our Lakeway branch with Dr. Chapa in 2015 as well.  Our goal from the beginning and certainly now was and is 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 their care. We are privileged to be your partner as we work together to keep your child healthy from birth through adolescence. All our physicians are Board Certified by the American Board of Pediatrics and are Fellows of the American Academy of Pediatrics. We also have a certified Pediatric Nurse Practitioner who is a wonderful resource to our patients and physicians.

Perhaps our favorite part of practicing Pediatrics is the opportunity to build relationships with our patients and their families as they grow. It is our privilege to truly be your partner, joining your intimate understanding of your child with our professional training and experience. 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. We schedule all well child exams with your primary doctor. However, if your physician is unavailable due to conferences, vacation, or simply because of a full schedule, we are happy to offer an appointment with another physician or our nurse practitioner.
