Dr. Kaldas then expanded the scope of his practice to include pediatric emergency medicine by working at North Central Baptist Hospital’s Pediatric Emergency Room. Although Dr. Kaldas enjoyed ER work, he missed serving as a primary care physician for children and their families. Consequently in 2008, he opened Alpha Pediatrics in San Antonio.
