Update: Good news! If you would like to know what it’s like to have a pediatrician that keeps in touch with parents, the article “OMG – a text from a doctor” gives a good example. It features the story of the mother of one of my patients and her communication with me via the OhMD app in preparation for her son’s surgery. It is available at the AthenaInsight blog.
I’m Julio Bracero, a bilingual (English+Spanish) pediatrician in the Dallas/Fort Worth area (DFW) of Texas. You can find me at Trinity Pediatrics in Plano.
I am a Puerto Rico native and I always wanted to become a pediatrician! Besides my medical training, I have national-level experience in advocacy, medical education, and international health projects. What does this mean for you? It means I know how to find the best resources available for your child, and I know how to reach out to them so they can help you.
For example, if your child has a complex medical condition like ADHD, autism, or seizures, I know how to care for these conditions. I will help you find a specialist and keep in touch with you throughout the process.
I am also comfortable in managing complex and/or long-term conditions like asthma, autism, speech delays and other learning problems. I also work with families that have specific needs, such as foster children, international adoptees and/or refugees, and recent immigrants.
Lastly, my main goal is to help your family through our complicated healthcare system in the best way I can.
Here are other ways I am different from other doctors:
If you (or a sub-specialist) need your child’s medical records – I can send the documents to you via secure, HIPAA-compliant email.
If the school requires a letter for your child’s ADHD medication – I can provide all needed documents and send them to the school for you.
If you need to ask any questions after a medical visit – you can keep in touch with me via your smartphone.
Parents: to communicate with me directly, please sign up to our patient portal (just give your email address to the front desk). Once you are set up, we can communicate in a secure, HIPAA-compliant chat about anything except emergencies.
Do NOT ask for patient information via my email form. For appointments, call the office. For emergencies, call 9-11.

Have you ever seen a baby not cry during a check up? How about a toddler? Our children range from newboren to double digits and not only do they like him, they look forward to visits. And as a parent, I have never left an appointment feeling rushed. He takes the time to answer questions and explain what is going on. Did I mention that the kids like him? It doesn't hurt that he is funny and can put the kids and the parents in a fit of laughter.
Being a first time mom choosing a pediatrician who is good at what he does but also good with children and the family is something very important. I've seen two pediatricians at this office both good doctors but nothing compared to Dr. Bracero. He is very attentive to my son and listens to my concerns thoroughly lets me asks questions and answers them with much detail! Explains his plan for treatment and asks for parents opinion. I love that he uses the Oh md app perfect 4 last minute concerns!

After 3 different doctor's I believe I found one who truly knows what he is doing. I have never experienced a doctor who keeps up and keeps a parent feeling like thier child is number one priority. If you want a pediatrician who truly cares and knows his stuff Julio Bracero is the one to see. I trust his ability to put my child's care in his hands.
Dr. Julio Bracero was great! He paid a lot of attention to details and even though I had a lot of questions for him he made sure none of them went un answered. He was thorough and made sure I understood everything that was going on. I usually end up leaving other Dr's offices feeling rushed or not getting all of my concerns taken care of but with my recent visit with Dr. Bracero this was not the case! :)

Being a first time mom to a premature baby i have a lot of questions and with Dr.Bracero I feel comfortable asking about all my concerns regarding my son. He is very attentive and helps in every way possible and that makes all of the visits feel welcoming. I especially love the app he suggests to all the parents in order to get in contact with him if we have any concerns he is always open to answering any questions we might have. I would definitely recommend Dr.Bracero to my friends and family.
