Welcome to Hales Pediatrics
The pediatricians at Hales Pediatrics provide medical care for infants, children, and adolescents-from birth through the college years. This care includes treatment of sick children, preventive and "health maintenance" care for well children, and counsel and support to our patients' families and caregivers.
Dr. Stephen Hales has practiced pediatrics in New Orleans since 1978, until 1999 as a solo pediatrician. Dr. Oates, Dr. Milvid, Dr. Gorman, Dr. Kosarek and Dr. Haydel have been wonderful additions to Hales Pediatrics.
Our practice strives to provide the highest quality care, and to do so in an environment that encourages children to feel happy and safe as they come to our office. We value your time, and work very hard to assure that we see our patients with minimal delays. We also understand your need to have access to us by telephone. While the office staff will help with many questions you may have about scheduling appointments, insurance, and other non-medical matters, all of your questions about your child will be discussed with our pediatricians.
We are pleased with the feedback we hear from our patients-that they are seen on time, that their calls are returned, and, most importantly, that their children (almost always) look forward to "going to the doctor." We always strive to improve our care, and welcome your comments and suggestions.
Notes and Announcements
2015 Flu Shot Updates
We are waiting to learn when our pre-ordered flu vaccine will be shipped, and will make an announcement on our website as soon as that date is confirmed, hopefully in August.
We have ordered sufficient vaccine to be able to offer flu shots to our patients and to their parents, grandparents and caregivers.
We encourage you and your family members to get your flu shots as soon as possible. We plan to open additional office time to assure everyone can receive their flu shots.
