News Releases

  • Changes Coming to Texas Pediatric Specialties and Family Sleep Center!

    We are excited to be changing electronic medical record systems effective April 3, 2017.

    What does this mean to you?
    1. A better Patient Portal
    2. A better system for the staff and physicians to use
    3. A better accounting system
    Our new system is called Greenway!

    The week of March 27, 2017, our staff will be working under a ”conversion process”, so please bear with us as we have a temporary process in place.

    There may be a lapse in the appointment reminders. Please accept our apologies for that during this time.

    Then the week of April 3, 2017, we will be in “go Live” mode. Please be patient with us that week, as everyone will be working in the new system for the first time.

    It will take us a couple of weeks to get our “groove” going, but it will be worth it!

    Thank you for your understanding and patience!!
