Dr. Laura Baer grew up in New Jersey but got to Texas as quickly as she could! Initially, she came to Texas for her undergraduate studies and then discovered that Texas would be her forever home.
After finishing her undergraduate degree in biology at Baylor University (Sic ‘Em Bears), she attended Texas A&M College of Medicine on the Round Rock campus. She met her now husband, Kyle, while living in Austin and completed her pediatrics residency training at Dell Children’s Medical Center.
Dr. Baer is passionate about serving children of all ages. She understands that family time is valuable, and a child’s health is precious. She believes the role of a Pediatrician is to be a knowledgeable resource, a good listener, and an advocate for your child’s health. One of her passions is teaching and encouraging mothers about breastfeeding. She is an International Board-Certified Lactation Consultant and provides comprehensive care to new parents. Serving as a Pediatrician is an incredible joy and privilege to Dr. Baer.
Outside of medicine, Dr. Baer enjoys spending as much time as possible with her husband and daughter, Caroline. You will find them hiking many of Austin’s trails, serving in their local church, traveling to new places, and trying new recipes in the kitchen!
