About Us

A message from Dr. Yvonne Miranda:

I am a mother of two children and have been practicing medicine in San Antonio since 2000. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Biology from the University of Texas at Austin and my Doctor of Medicine degree from the UTHSCSA. I completed my training in pediatrics at UTMB in Galveston. My prior experience includes six years at Centro Med and almost one year at Good Night Pediatrics. San Antonio is my home and as a parent, I certainly understand the need of raising healthy and happy children. Taking care of children is what I love to do. I am Pediatric Board Certified and fluent in Spanish. I certainly look forward to meeting and serving families in the community.

A message from Myrna Miranda-Carlos MS, FNP-C:

Texas Board Certified in Family Practice

I was born in the West Texas town of El Paso, where I received my Bachelors of Science degree in nursing from the University of Texas at El Paso. To further my education I relocated to Dallas, Texas and received my Master degree as a Family Nurse Practitioner from Texas Woman University. I am certified by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners in Texas. While I attended school in Dallas, I worked in the intensive care unit and emergency room at Methodist Hospital. During this time I developed a love of caring for children and decided to focus my practice in pediatrics. As a mother I understand the worries that parents experience when their children are ill. My goal is to keep parents well informed and they’re children healthy. When I am not busy taking care of little ones I spend my time with three wonderful boys of my own. I am excited to be part of the Pedi-Place family and thank the community for allowing me to be a part of your children’s health care needs.

A message from Shruti Shanker, D.O.

I recently graduated from my residency training program in Austin, TX at Dell Children's Medical Center. Prior to my training, I attended medical school and graduated from Nova Southeastern University (Fort Lauderdale, FL) in 2010. I received my undergraduate education from the University of Florida, and graduated cum laude with a major in Nutritional Sciences. I have had a love for helping children since I was a teenager myself. My passion for volunteering in the pediatrics units of hospitals and my community service trips to Nicaragua, Peru and Ecuador helped me realize that I wanted to become a pediatrician. Keeping your kids safe and healthy, both physically and emotionally, is my goal as your child's doctor.

My specific interests include newborn medicine, developmental and behavioral disorders, and preventative care. I am also strongly passionate about nutrition and battling the childhood obesity epidemic. I try to use powerful motivational interviewing techniques with my patients to help them WANT to live a healthy lifestyle-rather than simply just telling them to "eat healthy and exercise."

I am looking forward to being a community pediatrician here in San Antonio, and thank you for letting me take care of your little ones.
