Pediatrics

From routine check-ups to specialty care coordination, we provide parents peace of mind through a truly personalized approach.

Heritage Medical Associates Pediatricians focus on comprehensive care from birth through young adulthood. Our pediatricians and staff work closely with families as a team, offering not only healthcare but support and education for any challenges that might arise, as well as coordinating with other specialists and facilities as needed.

Our dedicated team offers a wide range of services including preventive care, well-baby/well-child visits, sick visits, immunizations and vaccinations, sports physicals, special needs, acute care, diagnostic and treatment services, prenatal consultations and health screenings. We invite you to tour our facilities, meet our physicians and nursing staff, and ask questions in order to make an informed, confident choice for your child’s care.

Preventive Care

We believe that regularly scheduled preventive health visits greatly improve overall quality of care. Preventive visits provide the opportunity to look more deeply into every aspect of a child’s health, from the physical to the nutritional to the emotional. These visits are an ideal time for the child, family and care team to discuss topics that can influence a child’s overall health, such as family relationships and dynamics, developmental and behavioral concerns, educational achievements, social interactions, and media use.

After Hours Care

We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. It's our mission to be there for patients when they need us.

We realize you have many options for after-hours care. However, we think continuity of care through your primary medical provider, who is most familiar with your child’s history, is always the best choice. We do not recommend using retail-based health clinics; although convenient, we believe your Heritage Medical Associates team is able to provide higher quality, more informed service with no disruption in the continuum of care.

In the event you need urgent care outside office hours, you can access your pediatrician by calling their phone number. We will return your call within 15 minutes to address your child’s problem. If necessary, we will meet you at the office or direct you to the appropriate emergency facility. If you haven’t heard back from us in 15 minutes, please call again in case of an error in our notification system.

We encourage that non-urgent concerns be discussed during the daytime when the office is open so that we can provide prompt care both in person and over the phone.
