Jane and John Justin Neurosciences Center Welcomes Four New Faculty Members

The Jane and John Justin Neurosciences Center is growing to meet the needs of our region. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Dallas (#3) and Fort Worth (#4) are among a total of five Texas cities listed in the 15 fastest growing large cities and both are listed within the top 15 most populous cities in the country. Medical Director M. Scott Perry , M.D., Cook Children's Neurosciences Center said, “We want to deliver to our patients the quality of care expected of Cook Children's in a timely manner. To do that, we must continue expanding our faculty to meet demand. Our area is growing rapidly and we care for more than the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex. We have clinics across the state in Amarillo, San Angelo, Waco and Tyler to name a few.

Over the next two months, Cook Children's is happy to welcome our newest Neurology faculty members and have plans to add up to three more in the future.
