Our partnership with Dr. Bloss and Houston Pediatric Surgeons

Our practice is proud to announce the recent partnership with renowned pediatric surgeon Robert Bloss, M.D.

Dr. Bloss began practicing pediatric surgery in Houston in 1981. Since that time, he has become one of the most prominent pediatric surgeons in Houston and the United States.

He developed a national reputation as a leader and is a member of the American Pediatric Surgical Association and the Lilliputian Surgical Society. Dr. Robert Bloss moved his office located at 7900 Fannin to our new office at 7400 Fannin, Suite 700 (7th floor), where he continues to provide exemplary care to his patients—side by side with Dr. Haroon Patel and Dr. Sara Fallon.
