Get to know Dr. Tim

Dr. Tim Porter is a board certified pediatrician and the Co-Founder & Chief Medical Officer of Modern Pediatrics. He received his M.D. from the University of Rochester in New York, before completing residency training at Northwestern University in Chicago. He worked in private practice in Chicago for five years before pursuing his dream of co-founding his own practice, Modern Pediatrics, and moving to Austin in early 2020. 

Dr. Tim also teaches a free newborn prep curriculum to new parents to ease their minds and help them through their wonderful parenting journey.

Finally, in addition to providing primary medical care for infants and children, Dr. Tim is an expert in pediatric sleep, having conducted hundreds of individual sleep consultations in his career.

Dr. Tim lives in South Austin with his fiancée, Mary and they love traveling, hiking, and looking for the best fried chicken sandwich out there. If you have any suggestions, he’d love to hear them!

... My oldest daughter would come home and practice listening to the heart beats of her baby dolls "just like Dr. Tim does it". I cried when I found out he was leaving. Austin, you are so lucky to have Dr. Tim.

Dr. Tim was wonderful. He came to my house & completed my daughter's exam & vaccines in my living room. It was such a relief and so much more comfortable than going into an office.

What makes Dr Tim so special is his uncanny ability to make you feel that you’re doing a great job as a parent - something that’s imperative during your child’s first year of life.
