Born and raised in Colombia, Dr. Parra received his medical degree from the Nueva Granada Military University in Bogotá.

Around 1999 he moves to Houston, where he completed a pediatric internship and residency at the University of Texas Medical School.
Dr. Parra has worked with the community health sector at the Casa de Buena Salud in Clovis, NM, as an attending pediatrician at St. Joseph Medical Center and as a staff physician at Tejas Medical Associates in Houston, TX.
Board Certified in pediatrics; he founded Cesar Parra Medical Clinic in 2004 and Parra Pediatrics in 2016, serving as their attending physician at both locations.
Realizing the need for resources among underprivileged populations in Texas and worldwide, Dr. Parra founded The Holy Child Charity in 2014. This non-profit organization, rooted in Christian principles, is devoted to feeding, educating, and helping children worldwide.
Outside his clinical practice and non-profit work, Dr. Parra enjoys traveling, cooking and baking, attending mass and studying Christianity, raising his horses, and spending time with his family.
