Middle Childhood Care (5 – 10 Years)

When it comes to pediatric care, Dr. Sara O’Heron is one of the best in the country. You can trust your children to her care. She has over 20 years as an experienced pediatrician.

Dr. O’Heron has dedicated half her life to children’s health care. Pediatricians devote much of their time to regular health examinations, as well as to preventive medicine and health practices. They routinely immunize children against  infectious diseases, such as influenza, meningitis, measles, mumps, and chickenpox.

In addition to her immediate healthcare duties, Dr. O’Heron acts as an advocate for children in endorsing public education, access to health care, and is a speaker/educator for such subjects as HPV (Human Papillomavirus). These measures have led to better development and health of young people, as well as a dwindling of morbidity and mortality rates.

The American Academy of Pediatrics maintains 41 sections consisting of members who have interests in specialized areas of pediatrics, such as immunology, adolescent health, cardiology, emergency medicine, surgery and diseases of special organs and systems.
