Naomi Tebletz Gebrelul, MD
Children's Health Pediatric Group
Naomi Gebrelul, M.D., is a pediatrician with Children’s Health℠ Pediatric Group Cedar Hill, where she provides a range of primary care services to infants and children.
She says her natural affinity for children combined with a strong interest in science led to a career in pediatric medicine.
“I enjoy being around children and just love their innocence,” she says. “Instead of playing with peers, I was taking care of my little cousins.”
Dr. Gebrelul says she particularly enjoys the opportunity to see her young patients grow over time.
“They develop so much in a very short period of time,” she says. “You see them one month and then the next month they’ve gained so many milestones, from babbling to speaking entire words.”
In addition to child development, Dr. Gebrelul has clinical interests in weight management, preventative health, and asthma management. Dr. Gebrelul says she believes in a holistic approach to caring for her patients, beyond just treating acute conditions. “I’m taking care of a whole family, not just the child,” she says. “It’s important to take into account everything that a family might be going through when taking care of a child.”
As a native of Louisiana, Dr. Gebrelul is a huge football and New Orleans Saints fan. She also enjoys traveling with her husband whenever possible.
