Welcome to Liberty Hill Pediatrics
We are still open. If you choose to do telemedicine from your home: please click on this link.
We are currently not testing for COVID-19. If you feel your child has the virus, please call the office for a telemedicine. Please do not bring your child to the office. If your child is in respiratory distress and needs Immediate care, please call 911.
We have modified our schedule to see only well-child exams in the morning. Sick children will be seen in the afternoon either in the office or via telemedicine. We have completely separate waiting rooms and exams rooms for well child visits and sick visits, which allows us to keep your children safe when they come for their well checks. Patients with symptoms concerning for COVID-19, ie fever, cough, shortness of breath, will be seen via telemedicine only. The American Academy of Pediatrics still recommends completing routine well checks.
Liberty Hill Pediatrics is a pediatric health care clinic dedicated to the wellness of children from birth to 21 years of age. Liberty Hill Pediatrics serves the Greater Williamson County area including Liberty Hill, Cedar Park, Round Rock, North Austin, Georgetown and Leander.
COVID-19, or coronavirus, is a viral respiratory infection that is spread through close contact with other people and/or respiratory droplets from sneezing or coughing. The virus can live on certain surfaces for up to 3 days. Symptoms include fever, body aches, headache, shortness of breath, and cough. Symptoms can occur between 2-14 days after exposure.
There is currently no vaccine or treatment for the illness. The best way to protect yourself and your family is to stay home, wash your hands often, cough/sneeze into your elbow, and avoid touching your face. If you must go out, try to maintain a distance of 6 feet from other people.

It’s hard to not be anxious right now, but one of the best things you can do for your children is to try to remain calm and keep some sort of routine. This is a great time to tell stories, play board games, and watch movies. Get some outside time in your yard if you are able to do so safely.
The American Academy of Pediatrics (healthychildren.org) has great information on their website for parents
About Liberty Hill Pediatrics
Tiffani Scott, who opened the successful Whitestone Pediatrics in Cedar Park in 2010, found her way to Liberty Hill in 2015 after prodding and encouragement from her Liberty Hill patients. In such a youth-centered community, her patients believed Tiff would be a perfect addition.
“I like the small-town feeling where I can get to know all the kids,” she said. “This is home now and I feel like I can relate to the patients.”
After opening the practice in Liberty Hill, she and her husband, Brian, quickly involved themselves in the community. The parents of two children, the Scotts are very involved in youth sports where Brian volunteers as a coach in football, baseball and basketball.
Tiff and her staff are like family and their patients are extended family. “We all have children, and we get it (the stresses of parenting). Parents don’t feel overwhelmed when they are here because they’re our family, too,” she said. So far, she has been impressed with the openness of the community and is pleased to have her two children attending Liberty Hill schools.
