Dr. Hatel Moonat is a full time faculty member in the Department of Pediatrics, Section of Pediatric Hematology and Oncology at Baylor College of Medicine. Her clinical expertise includes both benign hematology and general oncology, with a special interest in pediatric solid tumors.  

Dr. Moonat was introduced to oncology early on when her mother was diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer. This experience opened her eyes to a special field of medicine. She combined this with her desire to treat pediatric patients, and completed her fellowship training in pediatric hematology-oncology, with an advanced clinical fellowship year focusing on pediatric soft tissue and bone sarcomas.

Dr. Moonat is a full time clinician at Texas Children's Hospital The Woodlands, and cares for both general hematology and oncology patients in a community hospital setting. Hematology conditions treated by her include: abnormal newborn screens, anemias, hemoglobinopathies and low white blood cell and platelet disorders. General oncology conditions which she treats include both solid and liquid tumors.  She is currently a member of the multidisciplinary solid tumor team at Texas Children's Hospital Cancer and Hematology Centers.

In addition to her clinical responsibilities, Dr. Moonat has a personal interest in medical education of trainees. She also has a passion for providing palliative care in a community based setting.
