Featuring Dr. Moncenya Chatman, Owner Of Stork Vision Katy
We are so excited to tell you about a new business in Katy for expecting parents! New to Katy, but available in other cities and founded in 2004, Stork Vision 3D/4D Ultrasound provides expectant mothers with the highest quality limited diagnostic 2D, 3D and 4D ultrasounds.
The new location in Katy provides mamas and family with the opportunity to interact and share in this once-in-a lifetime experience through the eyes of ultrasound. Stork Vision® protocol ensures the highest standards and consistent quality of limited diagnostic ultrasounds in the industry.
We got to talk with owner and physician Dr. Moncenya Chatman who’s a mama herself about her business, plans for the future, and what keeps her inspired!
As a provider of prenatal care for many expectant mothers for over 15 years, and as a mother herself, Dr. Moncenya knows the excitement and anticipation surrounding this time in your lives. She’s had had the opportunity to watch ultrasound technology and prenatal imaging transform the pregnancy experience and she wanted to give this gift to mothers in Katy!

What did you do before opening the business and when did you open the doors on Stork Vision here in Katy?
I am still a practicing physician specializing in obstetrical care in the Houston area. We opened our doors in August 2019.

We’re giant advocates for supporting local! Tell us how the Houston community has gotten you where you are now.
Living in Houston, I have had experiences that helped to broaden my aspirations. I am not one-dimensional. I can be a mother, wife, physician, and an entrepreneur. Here, we can have our families and make our dreams come true too!
Future plans for your business?
Growth into a larger location – and adding an additional location to more conveniently serve the Katy/West Houston community.

How do you balance being a business owner and your busy family life?
I don’t – just kidding… Sort of. My husband has been very supportive, but every entrepreneur with a family knows how hard it can be some days. We communicate, motivate, and then execute.
Any special, sales, or deals our Katy Moms can look out for?
You bet! Monthly specials are available for all moms – including photos, DVDs, and heartbeat animals to capture the precious moments!
