Dr. Diana Eisner, M.D., Pediatritian

UPDATED: January 7, 2021

I’m a Houston girl, born at St. Joseph’s Hospital. I graduated from St. John’s School, then went on to receive my B.A. at Brandeis, and my M.D. from UT Southwestern Medical School in Dallas. I did my Pediatric Residency at Baylor College of Medicine, which included working both at Texas Children’s and Ben Taub General Hospital, and completed my training in 1980. I have been in solo practice as a Pediatrician in the Heights area since 1980. I tell my patients I started medical school at age 5, which is why I am still so young. I am so fortunate to have work that I love, that is “my calling,” and to work with a great team. I think that my care for my young patients and their families reflects this.

When not practicing medicine, I love to dance-all kinds of dancing. I studied with Patsy Swayze and was in Jazz Ballet Company in High school, and also too dance classes with her son Patrick Swayze and his wife Lisa Niemi. I now do swing dancing, and even take belly dancing classes. I love music, both popular and classical, and played the violin in school orchestras. I also love biking, hiking, gardening, the theater, reading—and sleeping when given the opportunity.

I have nieces and nephews, but no children of my own— unless I include all of the children I’ve cared for in my practice over the years, I have thousands! I look forward to continuing to take care of your children.
