About Marjan A. Linnell, MD

  • Dr. Linnell was born in Tehran, Iran, but grew up in Austin, TX from age six on. When she’s not working, she can be found outside with her husband, toddler, and dogs. Or in the kitchen, since “I absolutely love to cook (but I’m a terrible baker!).” Dr. Linnell’s favorite outdoor spot is Zilker Park,where she spent many enjoyable hours at Barton Springs with her friends while growing up, and now loves the weekend train rides on the Zilker Zephyr with her son.

I chose a career in pediatrics because there has always been something really special to me about the hope and joy in children’s hearts. As a pediatrician, I get to see this every day, while making sure they are growing up to be healthy, happy adults. The most important part of caring for a patient is taking the knowledge I’ve gained in my training and tailoring that to the patient and their family. The best care is evidence based, individualized care that a family is comfortable with and truly understands.

    Dr was great! Look her time, listened and was king to my son! Nurse was nice as well! Waited 15+ minutes in lobby though. Overall good experience!

    Long wait to get into an exam room, no updates/info from staff.

  • January 19, 2023

    Dr. Linnell is always amazing! She is caring, takes her time in appointments. Always listens to any concerns I may have. Would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a pediatrician. Her MAs are always really nice and caring. Specially when giving injections to little ones.

  • January 18, 2023

    It took Almost 30 minutes to get the vaccines ready. I had two small children in a small room and it was pretty miserable trying to keep them happy and out of the drs stuff. I appreciate all y’all do but that long is too long
