There’s something different about Health Services of North Texas Plano (HSNT).
Sure, it offers a wide selection of general medical services.
But its Plano pediatric services, headed by Dr. Achala Ellepola, is a gem appreciated by in-the-know locals.
So what’s the buzz?
“We have a family practice provider and family nurse practitioner. This is one place where the whole family can get help. If parents are sick, they can’t take care of children. We get much accomplished. The goal is to keep kids healthy and in school; reducing the amount of missed-school time is a priority.”
Dr. Ellepola leads a robust pediatric program featuring accessible care for the entire community.
“I have a patient-care philosophy. I’m here to provide for all children regardless of insurance status: Blue Cross Blue Shield, Medicaid, CHIP or no insurance at all,” she says.
Dr. Ellepola is passionate about her rapport with Plano ISD, its school nurses and other professionals in reaching our local immigrant population. HSNT offers communication in a variety of languages because patients learn best about proper medical options in their native dialects. Spanish, Russian, Farsi, Dari are just a few examples of languages spoken in the practice.
