Wendi S. DeFrank, MD
I'm a pediatrician at Children's Hospital Pediatrics in Laplace, Louisiana. I chose to practice pediatrics because children are open, honest, and downright fun to be around, even when they don't feel well. With over 27 years of experience, I continue practicing pediatrics because I enjoy watching patients grow up to become parents. The best thing is when my patients come back with children of their own, it's very gratifying!
I earned my medical degree from the University of Mississippi then completed my pediatrics residency at Ochsner Hospital. I am certified by the American Board of Pediatrics.
My "little something extra" is that when I'm not working, I love to piece quilts and sing in the choir at church.
