Children's Clinic is thrilled to announce that Tessa V. Perez, MD, FAAP, will join the team in December after 19 years of practicing pediatrics in her native Texas. She is excited to provide comprehensive pediatric care to children of all ages throughout Billings, Montana.
After finishing medical school at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston, Dr. Perez did her residency at Driscoll Children’s Hospital in Corpus Christi, Texas. She is a board-certified pediatrician and a member of the American Academy of Pediatrics.
Dr. Perez had two of her four children while in medical school. Being a mom while pursuing a career in medicine is what made her want to become a pediatrician. Nineteen years later, she still loves this specialty, claiming “kids are the best patients!” Dr. Perez will see patients ages newborn through their teen years at both the Downtown and West End locations.
When not in clinic, Dr. Perez can be found in the mountains hiking, visiting national parks, reading, listening to podcasts, crafting, and spending time with her granddaughter, Addy.
