​Professional Background

Dr. Jeannette Ouyang-Latimer earned her Bachelor of Arts in Biological Basis of Behavior and her Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering, graduating cum laude, at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia in 1999. She earned her Doctor of Medicine at the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign in 2003. She completed a combined residency in Internal Medicine and Pediatrics at UCLA-Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles in 2007 and a fellowship in Infectious Disease at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston in 2010. Dr. Ouyang-Latimer earned her Masters of Public Health, with a concentration in Epidemiology and Global Health, at the UTHealth School of Public Health in Houston in 2010.

Dr. Ouyang-Latimer  has worked in a variety of positions over the course of her medical career, most recently in private practice as an Infectious Disease (adult) specialist from July 1010 to August 2017, as a telemedicine/urgent care physician at Doctors on Demand from August 2017 to December 2017, and as an Infectious Disease specialist for Memorial Hermann-Greater Heights Hospital and Houston Methodist West Hospital from December 2017 to June 2020.

Dr. Ouyang-Latimer joined Kelsey-Seybold in July 2020.

Professional Associations

Dr. Ouyang-Latimer is a member of the Infectious Disease Society and the Christian Medical & Dental Association.

Hobbies and Interests

Dr. Ouyang-Latimer enjoys spending time with her husband and four children. She loves to travel and explore new cities on foot and learn about other cultures. She routinely tries to give back to the community and loves to include her children in various service projects in town.

​I believe in walking with a patient through their course to full recovery. It’s important for a patient to trust their physician and feel their needs and concerns are being heard. Great care also includes multidisciplinary collaboration and constant adjustments based on evidence-based studies.
