Telehealth Appointments at Healthy Kids Pediatrics, Frisco

We are excited to announce that beginning in February, 2018, Healthy Kids Pediatrics will be offering telehealth appointments to all our patients.

These appointments can be done from your office, on the go or from the comfort of your own home.

Telehealth appointments will be for:

  • Lab reviews
  • Follow up appointments
  • Medication discussions & any advice required
  • Chronic conditions and concerns

In the past we have utilized a triage nurse to answer patient questions. However going forward, we will no longer be answering questions via phone call but with an actual live video appointment with one of our providers.

Please note that this includes emails sent to the office. You may of course send an email with questions to the office and a telehealth appointment will be scheduled for you.

Please contact your insurance companies to see if telehealth is a covered benefit with your insurance plan. This is not something we can check for you, you will have to look into your benefits via phone call or online.

Telehealth appointments will be billed to your insurance.

If you are a self-pay patient, you will be able to pay for the appointment online through our epayments section of our patient portal. (epayments will be available in February).

Dr. Bain and our other providers will NOT be conducting sick or well child appointments via telehealth. At HKP we believe that we need to physically be able to see, assess and examine your children if they are not feeling well, as they may require further testing. They will, however answer any questions you may have regarding medications or advice needed via telehealth.

You must have signed up for our patient portal to be able to have a tele-health appointment. You can download the Healow app to your phone or can access Healow through the patient portal when it is time for your appointment.

Please note your child must also have been seen within the last 6 months in our office to be able to conduct a telehealth appointment.

Meet the Medical Team at Healthy Kids Pediatrics

Dr. Bain of Healthy Kids Pediatrics is privileged to have helped so many patients who suffer from complex, chronic diseases like eczema, asthma and allergies.

Since 2006 Dr. Bain has brought a more holistic approach to the treatment of children with the purpose of helping kids become healthier, not just managing their symptoms.Providers

In keeping with her passion for holistic and truly integrative medical care, Dr. Bain has pursued additional expertise and fellowship certification through the American Board of Integrative and Holistic Medicine as well as the Institute of Functional Medicine, in order to provide the best medical care possible for her patients.

With each passing year, more and more parents seek the assistance of Dr. Bain and her knowledge of functional medicine to develop a customized, comprehensive, interventional treatment plan that reestablishes balance and functionality and restores health to children.

Dr. Bain enjoys spending time with her patients and their families, reviewing their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease.

Dr. Bain is grateful for her two excellent nurse practitioners who also use both alternative and traditional approaches to treating our patients.

What inspired you to work at HKP and practice in a more holistic way using functional medicine?

Michelle Rowton Pic 7

My personal health journey is my greatest inspiration for helping others.  I had an extremely ill childhood and young adulthood which culminated in seeing 9 traditional medical doctors in about a year who could not help me.  It then took years of research, hard work, implementing lifestyle changes, and multiple alternative physicians to reclaim my health.  My true interest has always been helping children, with an emphasis on 2 and under.  Last year I spent the year as Program Coordinator for a functional medicine office that treats mostly adults. Although I absolutely loved that rewarding job and was able to help so many, I constantly realized that so many young adults wouldn't be dealing with what I dealt with if they had been afforded a different kind of healthcare as children.  I joined Healthy Kids Pediatrics because providing children with a healthy childhood provides me with immense satisfaction. 

Please share with us anything else within your professional and personal background that would be relevant to our patients and their families. (Work experience, etc.)

 I originally started my career in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit quickly moving to neonatal transport nurse via ground and air, charge nurse, central line specialist, safety specialist, and educator.  I was afforded the opportunity to provide education to not only interns and seasoned staff but also to nurses, physicians, and respiratory therapists all around the North and East Texas areas.  Following completion of my graduate degree I worked in many Neonatal Intensive Care Units in the area as a Neonatal Nurse Practitioner while spending over 800 hours of study in alternative and functional medicine areas such as nutrition, naturopathy, homeopathy, methylation pathway and other genetic defects, functional blood chemistry interpretation, blood, hair, saliva, stool, and urine interpretation, and applied kinesiology.  I have actively been involved with bringing delayed cord clamping back to the delivery room in the DFW Metroplex, as well as providing inservices to nursing organizations regarding the science behind alternative birth plans. I provided one on one care privately to many patients during that time until last year when I began running a functional medicine program with as many as 150 patients in the program at any given time.  My journey is most certainly unique, but provides me with a very broad range of experiences to make me the clinician I am today. 

You are often asked to be interviewed, please share with us some of the radio shows you've been on.

I have been on shows such as the Robert Bell Scott Show on the Natural News Network, Project Socrates on Freedomizer Radio, and The Power Hour.

During the winter, what are some ways you prevent/treat cold and flu symptoms personally?

The main way I prevent cold and flu symptoms in the winter is by having high standards for the things that I put in to my body.

Year after year I see the same cycle; Halloween comes with all of its candy and sugar and within the next two weeks, winter illness season begins.  Then follows Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's, and Valentine's day with that final wallop of sugar and illness at Easter. 

One teaspoon of sugar can affect the immune system for the next 6 hours! 

My diet is very clean with very little processed foods, little to no sugar or sugar creating foods such as white potatoes, corn, rice, or other starches, appropriately raised animals for sources of high quality protein and good fats, and lots of organic, local if available, produce. 

I schedule time for fitness with a requirement of 8 to 10 hours of sleep per night. 

My favorite products for immune support or winter illness treatment are Viracillin, Agrisept, elderberry syrup, vitamin D, oregano oil, essential oils, and colloidal silver. 

Do you have a favorite family recipe for spring?

My family very much enjoys the abundance of fresh leafy greens and herbs that come with spring! California chicken wraps are our favorite. 

I use the recipe from Against All Grain: Meals Made Simple by Danielle Walker to make gluten free tortillas, honey Dijon chicken, homemade dairy free ranch dressing, topped with fresh lettuce and avocados. Against All Grain Meals Made Simple By Danielle Walker

Although we live on acreage, our land is dedicated to our animals and we have yet to place an in ground garden. That would take heavy duty fencing to keep it safe from grazing animals. We currently shop at Mckinney Farmer's market and use our Tower Garden for growing vegetables. Our goal this spring is to finally raise our own chickens!

What would you like to say to your future patients?

One thing I have learned in my personal health journey is that I am not a protocol.  Your child is not a protocol either.  We are all unique beings that deserve to have our healthcare tailored to our own bodies, health histories, family health histories, and specific wants and needs. I also believe in letting parents parent.  The answers that I have may not be easy at times, but I hope that my patients and their families can take comfort in that I have experienced firsthand through my own journey what a journey back to health entails.  If I'm asking you to do it, I've probably all ready done it, and I know what it is I am asking from you! I take great pride in what I do and look forward to all new patients who are looking for a practice that offers care outside of the traditional practice model.

Dr. Bain Introduces the Physician Assistant at Healthy Kids Pediatrics: Amy Speer


I wantedDr . Bain to take this opportunity to share with you a little about our Physician Assistant, Amy Speer.  She has been a welcome addition to the Healthy Kids Pediatrics team. Her skills, training and expertise are a natural complement to what I desire to accomplish through Functional Medicine while allowing us to extend more personalized care to all our patients.


Amy graduated with a Bachelor of Science in PA Studies from UTMB Galveston, is NCCPA certified and is currently studying for her Boards in Functional Medicine. Working in many medical environments including Family Practice, has given Amy the opportunity to work with a large variety of patients.


Amy shares that prior to her joining the staff at Healthy Kids Pediatrics her two children were patients of Dr. Bain's. She felt led to join Healthy Kids Pediatrics after I found the root of her son's underlying health concerns, made some changes to his treatment plan which made such improvement in her son's medical coAmy -speerncerns. Always, the learner, she recognized that joining the staff would also complement what she was already learning through her Functional Medical courses and allow her to put that knowledge to good work assisting our patients to achieve wellness and good health. We found that our philosophies were very much the same and the rest is history. 


Amy enjoys working out, cooking, crafting, reading and learning about all of the interesting things that come up over the course of the day like essential oils, homeopathy, etc.
