Dr. Hart Says:

My overall patient ratings are excellent.

Mazon, IL |
Terrible. I would not recommend going to this doctor. So passive, and because of her lack of attentiveness, my daughter had to be transferred to a larger hospital where the staff actually did their job. I would not even give her one star, but I had to click at least one.
Can't recommend her enough. She is an advocate for immunizations which we strongly support.

I am a board certified pediatrician with special expertise in Newborn Medicine (Neonatology).  I have received several awards, including most recently the Patients Choice Award and the Compassionate Doctor Award. I have been in practice for over 20 years and feel my experience and continuing training allow me to provide excellent quality pediatric care. I treat newborns to teenagers and firmly believe in building strong partnerships with the parents or guardians of my patients and am a strong advocate for pediatric immunizations.
