Dr. Mao (Retired)

Pediatrician located in Sugar Land, TX

Dr Mao was born in Argentina to parents who were diplomats. He grew up living in many countries and is familiar with different cultures. He speaks fluent English, Spanish, Chinese and some Portuguese. Dr Mao went to medical school at the University of San Carlos in Guatemala and then came to Baylor College of Medicine in Houston at the Texas Medical Center. He specialized in Pediatrics and trained at Texas Children’s Hospital and Ben Taub.


Dr Robert Mao has been practicing pediatric medicine for over 30 years in the Houston area. The last 24 years at the Methodist Sugar Land Hospital.

Dr Mao has served this community with kindness, compassion and gentle care. He believes that one of the major problems affecting all of us is the fast pace of living that creates a lot of stress and anxiety to patients and their families.  He encourages mindful meditation, Tai Chi, and yoga to restore peace and to calm the mind.

The office has always provided loving comfort and competent care to our patients. The long-term staff has created a beautiful energy and goodwill to the practice.  One of his greatest compliments is that many of Dr. Mao’s patients are now parents themselves and bring their own children to see him.
