Dr. Dickschat and family

Dr. Diana Dickschat joined Forest Lane Pediatrics in 2011, and she primarily sees patients in the Plano office. She is proud to have graduated Magna Cum Laude from Texas A&M University with a B.S. in Biomedical Science. Dr. Diana earned her medical degree at The University of Texas Southwestern Medical School and then completed a pediatric residency at Children’s Medical Center Dallas. Following residency, Dr. Diana was selected to serve an additional year at Children’s Medical Center as Pediatric Chief Resident.

She is a board-certified by the American Board of Pediatrics, a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics, a member of the Texas Medical Association, and a member of the Dallas County Medical Society. She has been honored the past 3 years by being recognized as a “Mom Approved Doctor” by DFW Child Magazine.

The part of Pediatrics she loves the most is watching children and families grow together over time: from the newborn period to childhood to the teenage years and beyond. She considers it an honor and a privilege to develop a relationship with each family, to be supportive at each important stage in their children’s lives, and to help each child achieve his or her fullest potential.

Dr. Diana lives in Frisco with her husband Dustin, son Tyler, and miniature pinscher Dixie. Her favorite activities include spending time with family, baking, arts and crafts, and travel.

Parent Testimonials

“I wish I could give 10 stars. After going to two other physicians in Allen our friends recommended Dr. Diana in Plano. BEST move we ever made. It may be a little out of the way for us, but my husband and I both agreed we would drive to Dallas for her. She is BEYOND wonderful. Actually, I feel like we have now seen all the doctors there and we have not one complaint about any of them. They get us in for sick visits the day we call. The are so accommodating. When you call and leave a message for the nurses, they are SO sweet and prompt to call you back. We literally could not be happier with Dr. Diana. She is so kind and patient. She is also an Aggie, so that’s another plus! It’s nice to have a doctor that actually remembers you, and listens to you! Yeah, the wait may be long sometimes. But people, this is a practice, you are not the only people waiting to be seen. There are kids that get sick everyday, it’s common, it happens, and there is always a wait. The nursing staff is courteous, and try to make everyone happy. Billing, is billing, working with insurance companies is not easy, it’s a constant battle. Don’t always point fingers. Give credit to the people caring for your children. I wouldn’t choose any other practice to do so!”

“I live in McKinney so driving all the way to West Plano is definitely not the most convenient, however I would never change pediatrician offices. My boys see Dr. Diana and not only do they love her, but so do I. Very friendly, outgoing, and has a similar sense of humor to myself. I feel like I’m seeing a friend every time we go.

What I love about her the most is that she isn’t a doctor that over prescribes or sends you to test after test. I am a very non-panicking parent. I love that she is the same way and gets that too. I know when she does tell me something to look deeper into that she really means it and not just sending us for unnecessary tests and specialists. Many of my friends drive from McKinney/Richardson/Carrollton to go see her.

I also adore Dr. Mannering as well and if we can’t see Dr. Diana then I try to get her. Both of these women truly love children, are personable, and love what they do. I’ve seen a few other doctors as well and have had great experiences.

Also props to the staff because I have never had an issue getting in and out no matter if they can get me in to my kids specific doctor or not. We have had a few serious medical issues with my kids and every time they were always there with answers.”

“We adore Dr. Diana! She has been absolutely amazing with both of my sons. She always takes the time to answer questions. She is so good with the kids. She came highly recommended from several friends and we know why. We have seen almost every Dr at Forest Lane at some point, they have all been wonderful. Even the front office staff has been fabulous to work with. My insurance requires referrals for specialists, which is a real pain. They have gone out of their way several times to urgently get referrals for me. I usually work Laurie and she is the sweetest, but all of their staff is top-notch. We are so thankful that we found Forest Lane Pediatrics.”
