Bee Cave Pediatrics

xray room

Bee Caves Pediatrics has been serving the Westlake and southwest Austin communities for over 25 years. Dr. David Ruiz and Dr. Jerry Hudson founded the practice in 1978, which at the time consisted of a small two-room office in southwest Austin. By 1982, the practice had grown considerably and was relocated to Bee Caves Road in Westlake, giving the practice its current name. In 2006, Bee Caves Pediatrics once again relocated to its current location on South Capital Texas Highway (loop 360) to better serve not only the Westlake community but all of southwest Austin.

As Austin has expanded, so has our patient population. In 2012 we have opened a satellite clinic in Lakeway. Now our families have two options which may be convenient.

We have always appreciated the commute many of our devoted patients from the Lakeway area have made over the years, and we are happy to make their lives a little easier. We have ensured that the feel of the Lakeway clinic is very similar to our Westlake office. So parents don't worry, there will there will be a Lego wall and most importantly bouncy balls at the Lakeway clinic too!

Since its founding, our physicians have cared for two generations of families with our first patients now bringing their own children. As we are now treating a second generation of patients, Bee Caves Pediatrics has also transitioned into a second generation of doctors, Dr. Elena Ruiz and Dr. Lydia Norton, who have taken over the reins of the founding physicians. Dr. Elena Ruiz and Dr. Lydia Norton continually deliver improved services to their patients by incorporating modern technologies and up-to-date evidence-based medicine, while at the same time honoring the founders’ philosophies of providing the highest quality of care with empathy and devotion for their patients and their patients’ families. This is a philosophy shared by every physician at Bee Caves Pediatrics.

All of our pediatricians are board-certified by the American Academy of Pediatrics and have trained in some of the best residency programs in the country. Our physicians are up-to-date on the latest medical standards, incorporating evidence-based medicine, to ensure that your child receives the best possible care.

Bee Caves Pediatrics brings the highest standard of care to its patients with comprehensive services including on site x-ray and laboratory. We provide our care in a warm and welcoming environment. Each patient room is unique with themes ranging from underwater and space designs to dinosaur and jungle motifs.

Our primary mission at Bee Caves Pediatrics is to provide the highest quality of care and services available in a comforting family-friendly environment. We pride ourselves on ease of access, prompt courteous service, and responsiveness to our patients’ concerns. We look forward to helping you raise happy and healthy children.
