We love Dr. Filak! She cares for my 3 daughters (6, 8, and 11) and she is incredibly knowledgeable and thorough! She discussed our concerns thoughtfully and has tons of positive energy that the girls really enjoy. We have been at Fannin Pediatrics since birth and, whether it's an annual well-visit or urgent care situation, we always receive the best care!

Dr. Filak sees all 3 of my children (ages 5, 3 and about to be 2), and we have been with her for 5+ years (all 3 from birth to now). She has a super fun personality, is thorough in hearing out what momma feels may be wrong, thorough in examining my kids to eliminate all possible options and diagnosing what she feels is most appropriate. She is not quick to jump to medicating, as she believes in helping children build their own immunities to things. At the same time, she’s not going to let an ear infection or something major go without treatment. She’s calm and reassuring which is what all moms need, especially with a first child and not knowing what typical viruses, shot reactions, etc look like. We love Filak and wish we could move her office out to Pearland, closer to us, but it’s worth the drive to the Med Center to see her! The entire office is friendly, easy to contact for last minute appointments, and genuinely cares about patient success and having a family environment.

Dr Filak is the best. I've taken my son Ebrahim to many pediatricians and I'm so glad to have come across Dr Filak finally. She's so positive, thorough and her upbeat manner is so reassuring. I recommend her very strongly!
