Blue Monarch Pediatrics
Dr. Elissa is married to her supportive husband Rick who together have three active young children and two dogs. In her spare time Dr. Elissa enjoys picnics at the park, cooking, hiking, water sports, and snowboarding. During the summer time you may find her with her family out on the lake!
As a parent to three young children, Dr. Elissa understands the need to provide high quality personalized whole child healthcare to the children and the whole family. She was motivated to provide a new experience for families after she was unable to get same day healthcare for her child. When she first moved to the Austin area her infant daughter was sick with 105F for a few days with no other symptoms. Dr. Elissa had all of her medical supplies packed up and wanted to establish care with a pediatrician in town. She called around to multiple pediatricians who were unable to see her, the urgent care was unable to provide pediatric specific procedures to test urine and she was directed to the children’s ER. She immediately unpacked her medical bags! After this she was inspired to save families visits to the hospital and urgent care centers especially in the time of the pandemic for simple tests and evaluations.
