Pediatric Cardiology | Female

Care Philosophy

I grew up outside of New York City and always wanted to be a doctor, to make people feel better and be an important part of their lives. 

Indeed, to this day, my greatest satisfaction is derived from helping children and their families to receive the best possible treatments and to be as healthy as they can possibly be.  I care for each patient as I would my own child, and enjoy close relationships with the many patients and families who have been in my care, some for more than a decade.  I emphasize the importance of treating the "whole child" and not only the heart.

Biography

I received my medical degree from the Harvard Medical School in 1974 and my Master's in Public Health degree from the Harvard School of Public Health in 1980.  I trained in pediatrics, then cardiology, at Boston Children's Hospital.  I joined the faculty of the Department of Cardiology in 1979 as Instructor in Pediatrics and am currently the Commonwealth Professor of Pediatrics at Harvard Medical School and Associate Cardiologist-in-Chief for Academic Affairs at Boston Children's Hospital.  

I have an active practice comprised of patients with congenital and acquired heart disease and have been honored by "Best Doctors in America", "Boston SuperDoctors", "Boston Magazine Best Doctor", and US News and World Report "Top Doctors," with star designation as in top 1%.  My research has focused on neurodevelopmental outcomes in children with congenital heart disease after heart surgery, and also on the evaluation and therapy of Kawasaki disease.  I have received the  2007 Distinguished Scientist Award (Clinical) of the American College of Cardiology, the 2009 Meritorious Achievement Award of the CVDY Council, and the 2009 Clinical Research Prize from the American Heart Association.  I am an author of over 300 original manuscripts, chapters, and reviews, including 11 guidelines or statements from professional societies.

in Hudson, MA |
Dr. Newburger is very patient and listens to every concern/question we may have. In addition she will spend as much time as needed explaining his condition and the options we may have. I would recommend her and her staff to anyone looking for a pediatric cardiologist.
