About Maria C. Scranton, MD

  • Dr. Scranton has three children. She says that most of her free time is spent as their "chauffeur, cheerleader, and occasional nag!"  She also enjoys reading, sprint triathalons, and boating.

My philosophy of care centers on working with the parents of my patients to give the best possible health care for each individual child, and working with the Texas Pediatric Society to improve the health of all the children of Texas.
