Dr. Jaeon Abraham has a tender heart. And in his profession, that’s a handy attribute.
“I enjoy most watching the little ones in nurseries as newborns, then seeing how they’ve grown at subsequent checkups,” says the board-certified pediatrician at Olive Branch Pediatrics in Plano. “It’s bittersweet watching them not be babies anymore, but I try to see each child as my own and practice that way.”
Olive Branch Pediatrics was recently acquired by Children’s HealthSM. Dr. Abraham started the practice in 2017 with his wife Rebecca, a registered pediatric nurse, taking over the 35-year-old Piga Pediatrics. The Abrahams are Christians and say they chose the Olive Branch name for their new practice because it’s approachable and reflects their personal values.
Becoming a part of the Children’s Health system is a win-win for both sides. Dr. Abraham says Children’s Health was looking to expand its area network, and he was interested in focusing more on clinical care and less on day-to-day back-office administration responsibilities.
Olive Branch Pediatrics can extend a greater pool of resources to parents” by affiliating with Children’s Health, Dr. Abraham says, including providing an in-office registered nurse and after-hours complimentary nurse advice line. Parents are able to reach the After Hours Nurse Advice Line by calling the main clinic number after hours and selecting the appropriate option to be transferred to the group.
Dr. Abraham graduated from and completed his pediatric residency at UT Southwestern Medical School, working at Children’s Medical Center Dallas and Parkland Hospital.
He currently provides clinical instruction for medical students and pediatric residents from Children’s Medical Center Dallas who come to study at Olive Branch where they receive training ranging from prevention and wellness checks, sick visits, prenatal consultations, immunizations, newborn nursery care and inpatient hospital care, in addition to sports physicals and travel advice, among other services.
The Abrahams practice pediatrics at home, too. They’re parents to 15-month-old Sophia and will be welcoming a baby boy in a few months.
“Patients become my extended family, like they are my own kids,” he says. “I’m committed to helping them grow into healthy adults. I like working with parents and delivering a continuity of care. I’m most proud of that.”
