CHCB is a practice that, at its heart, emphasizes the values of family medicine—we care for all ages. Pediatric services include 24-hour emergency coverage, appointment availability three evenings a week, and Saturday hours, as well as dental care for the whole family. A nurse is available for telephone medical advice during all hours CHCB is open.
Our CHCB providers care for children, and in addition, we offer a full-time pediatrician. Dr. Theresa Hetzler has over two decades experience in general pediatrics, caring for infants and children with special needs. She graduated from Albany Medical College and completed her pediatric residency and general pediatric fellowship at New York Medical College/Westchester Medical Center. She recently relocated with her husband to Vermont and is excited to be the first Pediatrician at CHCB. Dr. Hetzler is accepting new patients from birth to 14-years-old at our Riverside and South End Health Centers.
CHCB offers child psychiatry by licensed Psychiatrists and Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners. CHCB is also a Project LAUNCH participant, screening every child eight-years-old and under to ensure physical, social, emotional, cognitive and behavioral milestones are being met.
CHCB has partnered with Reach Out and Read (ROR), a national nonprofit organization that promotes early literacy by giving new books to children and advice to parents about the importance of reading. This program is critical to a child’s successful development. We’re happy to have ROR as a part of our comprehensive pediatric care.
