"Quality, Compassionate, and Personalized Care that you and your child will know and Trust."
Dr. Maria Bernardez is a Board Certified, FAAP Pediatrician. A Little bit of History: Orange Pediatric Care, P.C. is based in New Windsor, NY. 12553 Dr.Paul Latonero, MD FAAP started Orange Pediatric Care back around 1976 and has been serving the Orange County and surrounding communities since then. Dr. Maria Bernardez bought the practice in 2010 and has carried on the tradition of Orange Pediatric Care, caring for children and families with quality and compassion. We have families who have been with for several generations. That is, we now see the children of the children that Dr. L originally saw! We have run a satellite office in Beacon for 5 years and were very happy to be able to bring that "small town doctor" to serve the community with great personal service. How ever after 5 years having the two offices proved to stretch Dr. B a bit too thin and as a practice we were not able to devote enough resources to continuing running both offices. However, even with the closing of our office in Beacon, we are still just a short ride away from Beacon and the surrounding areas in our New Windsor office location. We still wish to serve those communities and continue to meet new families and children from Beacon, Fishkill, Cold Spring, Wappingers, Glenham, and surrounding areas .
We are a "large small practice". By that we mean that we have a large and loyal following of families who have been with us a long time. We consider them family. We also have grown and are happy to meet new families and welcome them to our practice. At the same time we are small enough to give every family personalized and compassionate care, the attention they deserve! We love meeting new families that are new to the area or are having their first child.
