Dr. Renee Cevey received a Bachelor of Science degree in chemical engineering from the University of Texas at Austin in 1996, and her MD in 2000 from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, Missouri. In 2003, she completed her pediatric residency training in San Antonio, Texas at Wilford Hall Medical Center and Brooke Army Medical Center. After serving as one of several staff pediatricians in pediatric clinics first on Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Tucson, Arizona and then subsequently at Wilford Hall Medical Center Pediatric Clinic, she now has gone into private practice. She is married with two young children.
Dr. Cevey's passion is equipping her patients' parents with the knowledge and understanding to optimize the health and well-being of their children. Her view of pediatric medicine is that it is not black-and-white, and she welcomes the opportunity to discuss the pros and cons of all available options with parents, and directly with patients as they grow older and take a greater role in their own health care. There are many conditions and illnesses whose management have been greatly improved by modern medications and treatments, but there are also a great many conditions and illnesses best managed by just patience and parents' "tender loving care." Dr. Cevey views her job as the opportunity to share her experience as a mom who happens to be a pediatrician to guide parents towards recognizing which situations fall into which category.
