“My son and daughter were seen today by Dr. noor as new patients and I have to say that I was deeply pleased with our experience. From the second we walked in, the two young woman at the front desk greeted us with a big smile. They’re customer service was AMAZING!!! When it came to see Dr. noor my son did excellent with him but my daughter put up a fight. I mean screaming, crying and kicking. I don’t know how he did it but he was able to calm her down to the point where he would ask her if he could check her ears, mouth, heartbeat, etc. and she would say yes with a smile. I totally recommend Dr. noor to anyone with children, He’s GREAT!!!!” – Daisy Aguilera
Dr. Wolens believes in teaching parents and children about medicine and how to manage medical issues in children. During his academic career, he enjoyed teaching future doctors about pediatrics. Now, he wants to teach families about the medical needs of their children. He teaches parents how to manage most common childhood issues and when a trip to the doctor’s office is warranted.
He is also a strong advocate for breastfeeding infants. He has seen benefits of breastfeeding for any length of time, and he thinks that a goal of 6 breastfeeding for 6 months is a realistic goal for most mothers. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends breastfeeding for at least 1 year, and he applauds all moms who continue breastfeeding for this length of time or more.

“Both of our children have been at VIP pediatrics for a few years. My oldest started with another pediatrician, but we eventually switched over after friends had recommended VIP. We began taking our youngest there right after birth and felt so at ease with the separate waiting rooms for “sick kids” and “newborns”. We usually see Dee, NP who is so fantastic! She is open-minded, listens well, and provides sound and practical advice with very thorough explanations. She is prompt with answering questions and returning phone calls. Overall, we have been so impressed and grateful for VIP Pediatrics, especially Dee! Thank you!” – Nicole Fennell
“Excellent care! They are truly compassionate and go above and beyond when caring for your kids.” – Danyell Taylor

Prior to joining Dr. Paredes in 2002, Dr. Crane Storey’s interest in the care of very ill children led to her employment at Texas Children’s Hospital as a Pediatric Hospitalist. Dr. Crane Storey was a volunteer at the St. Cecilia Medical Clinic since for several years in the late 1990s. There she provided well child care and to underinsured infants and children.
“We’ve been seeing Dr. Lee and the other doctors at Great Kids for eight years. They are all terrific. Dr. Lee is caring and smart; she listens to the child and parent, and she makes careful, thoughtful decisions. Dr. Crane-Story is also outstanding. The office staff are pleasant and efficient.” – Katherine V
“I highly recommend Dr. Zorrilla at Great Kids, she is great!!! She is nice, sweet, caring and always, always, always finds a solution to my baby’s problem. When my baby was born I had chosen Dr. Lee – and I was not happy at all. Dr. Lee didn’t show any compassion or interest – she was always in a rush to leave the room even though she just entered. We have also had visits with Dr. Paredes, and to my opinion, he is an okay Dr. but just not my preference.” – Esmeralda Ayala
