Shanel Parlar-Chun, MD, attended Baylor College of Medicine, earning her medical degree with honors in 2013. She remained there to complete a Pediatrics residency in 2016 at Texas Children’s Hospital. Dr. Parlar-Chun joined Kelsey-Seybold in January 2024 to become the pediatrician she wishes she had as a child: one who takes time to listen and explain the conditions behind her patients’ health concerns.

As a primary care provider in Pediatrics, Dr. Parlar-Chun loves the variety of the medical needs she encounters every day – ranging from well checks and sports physicals to acute and chronic sick care. She treats patients for concerns such as respiratory illness, bacterial and ear infections, skin conditions, stomach aches, and more. She prepares for each visit by thoroughly reviewing her patients’ charts to be as familiar and informed as possible and to help ensure appointments begin promptly. As a pediatrician, Dr. Parlar-Chun loves feeling like her work makes a difference for others.

Hobbies & Interests

Dr. Parlar-Chun’s favorite way to spend her time outside of work is with her family, which includes her husband (who is also a pediatrician) and their two boys. In her extremely rare “me-time,” she likes to play epic movie scores on the piano and is a devoted daily viewer of "The Young and the Restless."
