    Pediatric Services

    Your children are precious to you and a top priority to all the providers at Novant Health Hillsdale Medical Associates. Dr. Hirata is board certified in family medicine, a speciality that encompasses pediatric care. He and certified family nurse practitioner Margaret Bovender provide medical care to patients from infancy through childhood and beyond. Your family will find all of the services here that you would find at a standalone pediatric office, including:

    • Routine infant checkups.
    • Annual checkups through childhood.
    • Hearing and vision testing.
    • Routine care for childhood conditions including eczema and asthma.
    • Sick-patient care.
    • Vaccines.
    • School and sports physicals.
    • Care for sports injuries including fractures.

    We want you to be comfortable asking questions about the health of your child. If you have a concern, please feel free to call our office at 336-998-9060, or click here to schedule an appointment online. Also, know that urgent care after hours and on weekends is available.

    When you choose Novant Health Hillsdale Medical Associates, you make it easy for your children to get continuous care in a familiar environment as they grow. We also provide adolescent care, meaning you never have to worry about answering the question, "How old is too old to see a pediatrician?"
