Pediatricians in Orlando
Welcome to Pediatrics of Greater Orlando
At Pediatrics of Greater Orlando, our board-certified pediatricians Hernando A. Cardona, M.D. and Luz M. Karas, M.D. are committed to serving the healthcare needs of your children. Located in the MetroWest area, Pediatrics of Greater Orlando offers comprehensive pediatric and adolescent care to children in Orlando, FL.
Dr. Cardona and Dr. Karas are two of the top-rated pediatricians in the Orlando area, earning 5-star ratings on Healthgrades, Facebook, Google, and RateMDs. Patient satisfaction surveys only show a partial picture, so we encourage families to come in and meet us during one of our meet and greet events. This an opportunity during which our providers can respond in person to specific questions regarding immunizations, appointment scheduling, after hours care, procedures that are performed in office, and how to get into our system. Having a pediatrician already picked and assigned with your insurer helps avoid eleventh hour scrambles, particularly during the discharge process from a newborn nursery, illnesses, or to obtain yearly wellness exams and sports physicals.
From then until your child is 18 (or throughout college if desired), our providers will keep them on an immunization schedule, coordinate well-child visits to ensure the proper development, and take preventative measures for common illness and disease. We are also here to answer your parental questions, and see your child for specific issues.
Our site has guides, parent resources, and information that will hopefully answer all of your questions. But please feel free to reach out to us at (407) 704-6912 for any questions, or to schedule an appointment.
