Specialties

Dr. Larry C Herrera has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

  • Hospitalist

    Hospitalists are physicians who specialize in the care of patients in the hospital. The majority of hospitalists are board-certified internists and have completed the same training as other internal medicine doctors including medical school, residency and board certification examination.
    Hospitalist activities include patient care, teaching, research, and leadership related to hospital care. They have more expertise in caring for complicated hospitalized patients on a daily basis since, unlike other specialists or primary care doctors, they spend most of their day in the hospital.
    They often coordinate the care of their patients and act as the central point of communication among the different doctors and nurses involved in the patient's care. They are also the main physician for family members to contact for updates on a loved one.

Dr. Herrera goes out of his way to explain the results of all the tests that were done on my child. He was always available to answer any questions we had. I love him. If only all the doctors could be as good as he is.

My 15 month old recently was sick and we were not sure what was exactly wrong with him and Dr Herrera was the doctor he saw when we first admitted him to the hospital. I LOVE him, he was very calm and gentle and made me feel extremely comfortable and let me know everything that was going on and answered all my questions. He was the first doctor I have ever seen who actually asked for my opinion. I would recommend him to anyone with a sick child.
