Our Story | Health-e Pediatrics

Our dedication is rooted in the experience

of being parents ourselves.

Hello from Our Founder

Health-e Pediatrics emerged from a vision to help provide expert, reliable pediatric care to kids when and where care is most needed – after hours from your own home, where your child feels safe and comfortable.

I am a pediatric emergency medicine expert, mother of four young girls, and the founder of Health-e Pediatrics. I understand the worry a parent faces when their child gets ill after hours, staying up all night anxiously waiting for the doctor’s office to open in the morning. I can’t even count how many times I have used my knowledge and training to help my own children at night, and how many times I was able to help friends and family with their children. As a pediatrician, nothing is more important to me than helping children feel better while easing the concerns of parents. After working the past decade in emergency departments in New York City, Los Angeles, and the Central Valley, I realized there is an ever greater need to provide quality, accessible pediatric specialty care after hours.

The advancement of videoconferencing technology and its expanding use in healthcare allows us the opportunity to now offer these services to you. Health-e Pediatrics has emerged to help families avoid a costly urgent care or emergency department visit, and to serve as your go-to resource for those sicknesses and injuries that always seem to occur right after clinics close, in the middle of the night, or on the weekends.

Through this after hours, virtual pediatric urgent care, our highly trained doctors can diagnose your child’s symptoms, educate you on your child’s illness, and send e-prescriptions (if needed) to your pharmacy of choice, all from the comfort and safety of your own home.

We will be awake so you and your child can get back to sleep.
