Pediatric Services

HeartLight provides therapy and specialty medical services for children. A developmental pediatrician and two general pediatricians provide both traditional and functional medicine (dietary change, nutritional supplements, etc.) treatments for children with a wide variety of behavioral and developmental challenges. We have a particular passion for and expertise in treating children with autism and with ADHD. Therapy services include speech, occupational, vision, play and RDI therapies. By having multiple physicians and therapists under one roof, we are able to continually share our knowledge and experience, resulting in improved care for our patients.
