I love serving children in my Houston and Bellaire communities!

As Pediatric Chief Resident, I had the honor of working alongside the former Physician in Chief of Texas Children’s Hospital, Dr. Ralph Feigin. He taught me what it means to “put patient care first.” His work ethic, exceptional diagnostic skills and encyclopedic knowledge of medicine have been my model for the practice of medicine.

After completing residency, I joined Texas Children’s Pediatrics (TCP) and I am thankful to my colleagues at TCP for all that I learned as a young physician under the shelter of the TCP umbrella. After eleven years of practicing with TCP I found that my ideals for practicing medicine were diverging from the growing trend of large corporate medical practice.

At a time when independent pediatric practices are quickly disappearing, my team and I have created Nurture Pediatrics to bring you the finest general pediatric care possible. I know that your child’s health is precious, and I also know that your time is valuable. My team and I will work diligently to guide you through all the ups and downs of raising a child, as I have for more than 500 other families since the birth of their first child. From newborn to adolescence, know that your child will find a welcoming smile, a listening ear and genuine interest in their health and well-being at our office!

On a personal note, I am married to my high-school sweetheart Bryan Pate since 1998 and we have 2 fantastic sons, Joshua and Nathaniel. We love playing with our many pets, goofing off at beaches, hiking, running and hanging out with our extended families. Our family serves in quite a number of ministries, the most significant being family Life Groups at our home through Crosspoint Church for more than 10 years, several faith-based medical ministries including family based nutrition classes at Casa El Buen Samaritano for 5 years, and Peace Gospel Ministries for more years than we can recall.

Texas Children’s Hospital Medical Staff

I have always loved children and wanted to be a pediatrician for as long as I can remember.

During my medical training, I had the unique opportunities to provide medical care to children in Bolivia, South America and Botswana, Africa. After I finished residency in 2004, I became board certified and a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics. Other than a 3-year stint in Philadelphia, PA where I worked as an urgent care attending at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia during my husband’s fellowship training, I have worked for Texas Children’s Pediatrics for almost 10 years.

I am currently affiliated with Texas Children’s Hospital as medical and urgent care staff. After serving patients in various TCP clinics all over Houston, I am blessed and excited to join Dr. Pate and her amazing staff at Nurture Pediatrics in their ongoing work of providing excellent care to our own community.

On a personal note, my husband Daniel and I have been married for nearly 15 years and have 3 wonderful children: Maddie, Olivia, and Gabriel. We play a variety of sports throughout the year as well as cooking, baking, and watching movies together. We are active leaders in our Life Bible Study at Houston’s First Baptist Church, and we enjoy serving and helping refugees at the church’s Faith Center near Chinatown.

"Dr Janet Pate was the best pediatrician we have even had! We were so sad to leave her when we moved. I've never known a doctor with a touch quite like hers. She was so incredibly gentle with our girls. They never cried when she examined them. And she is a brilliant doctor!"
