Dr. Rita Hart, DO
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.

Channahon, IL |
I've been taking my children to Dr. Hart since my oldest was born, almost 13 years. Her standard of care is above and beyond, my children adore her and actually look forward to going to the doctor, and I personally have learned so, so much from her. She is a wonderful pediatrician, and holds an irreplaceable spot in our lives.
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.
