Meet your Friendly, Neighborhood Pediatric Specialists!

Relocating to  Collin, Denton, and Grayson Counties

If you are new to living in the Dallas suburbs, one or more of the following scenarios will sound only too familiar:  It may happen on a Friday night, while you’re cheering on your kid’s football team.  Or, it may happen in the middle of Fair Park, while you’re about to celebrate another Texas State Fair with a deep-fried . . . something.  It can even happen while you’re walking through the Galleria, Stonebriar Mall, Watters Creek, or the Shops at Legacy.  Suddenly, you’re blindsided by the realization:  “I’m a Texan!!! . . . sorta.  Or, at the very least, I’ve successfully acclimated to living in North Texas! . . . And how did I get here again??”  The journey to life in Collin, Denton, or Grayson County  can be a circuitous, unpredictable adventure, to say the least.

Like many other transplants to North Texas, Dr. MaryEllen Cavalier came to the Plano area because of work.  Back in the spring of 2008, and over 6 years before she opened Joy & Crown Pediatric Specialists,  she was recruited by UT Southwestern to develop a pediatric hematology/oncology program in the Plano area that was located at the Children’s Medical Center Legacy Campus (Children’s Health Plano).

And, as if being in the midst of a major move were not stressful enough, within weeks of relocating her entire family to  Frisco, Dr. Cavalier discovered that a family member was being confronted by a serious health crisis that required more than the services of a PCP.  She knew she needed to get her family member under the care of a specialist–fast.  Thankfully, the story has a happy ending: the Cavalier family found that they had access to  many expert specialists practicing out of Collin County . . .  right in their own backyard!  Several months later, Dr. Cavalier and her family were back on track and happily settling into their new life in North Texas.

Joy & Crown:  We Have Your Back, Right in Your Own Backyard!

Dr. Cavalier knows firsthand that, no matter how beautiful your new home and community may be, it’s a challenge to start over in unfamiliar surroundings.  Add to the usual relocation stress the realization that your  child is  in need of specialist care, and you can end up feeling truly overwhelmed and isolated from the happy, healthy, well-adjusted families around you.

But you are not alone: Whether you’re living in Frisco, Plano, Prosper, McKinney, Allen, or Sherman, Joy & Crown Pediatric Specialists can take the stress out of complex pediatric care by offering:

  • *pediatric hematology/oncology care that is compassionate, cost-effective, and patient-centered; as well as
  • *expert referrals to other local pediatric specialists based upon Dr. Cavalier’s
  • extensive knowledge of local/regional institutions’ areas of expertise
  • Quality pediatric specialist services can be found right in your own backyard!

What’s even better, Joy & Crown Pediatric Specialists also offers general pediatrics care for  families living in Frisco, Plano, and beyond!   So whether you’re looking for a pediatrician who is compassionate, eager to listen, and dedicated to the continued health of your children, or a pediatric specialist with knowledge and expertise related to blood disorders and cancer, Joy & Crown may be just the patient-centered medical home  for your children.

***(IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR ALL NATIVE TEXANS:  Even though not Texan by birth, Dr. Cavalier  got here–and opened her proudly-Texan practice– as fast as she could!!!)***
