About Heidi W. Busceme, MD, FAAP

  • After practicing in a small city in Northeast Texas, Dr. Busceme and her family relocated to Austin in January 2009. She loves every aspect of Austin, including outdoor activities, festivals, and the theater. She enjoys spending time with her husband and three children, whether playing at the park, swimming, or just hanging out at home.

The greatest part of being a pediatrician is the opportunity to watch a child grow. My goal is to help parents raise their children to be happy, healthy, and productive adults. I believe in treating every child with respect, just as I would my own.

    We love Dr. Busceme, she takes the time to listen to all our concerns and explain everything that we ask. Our nurse was also very sweet and caring.

    The doctor was excellent. Just frustrated that we showed up last week and there wasn’t a live interpreter which we requested when we made the appt. We had to reschedule for today. The doctor was able to put us in for today and there was a live interpreter today. This needs to improve. Not first time!
