Dr. Carina Heather Baird, MD

Pediatrician

Professional statement

I wanted to be a pediatrician ever since childhood. After being hospitalized as a teenager due to a major car accident, I felt even more passionately that I would choose medicine as my career. This experience as a patient helped me immensely in my journey to become a doctor, broadening my compassion and empathy. As a mother, I have also gained perspective on what it means to take care of a sick child: both my sons have been hospitalized for severe illnesses at different times, so I understand the fear and worry that comes when faced with such situations. As a pediatrician, I am inspired every day by my patients and their own challenges and trials, and believe that resilience and positive spirit are a large part of health outcomes and overall life success. I enjoy helping families navigate every stage of childhood, from the day they arrive home from the hospital through seeing their children off to college. I balance my practice by basing my recommendations on a solid foundation of medical knowledge as well as practical experience. I am a dedicated and thoughtful pediatrician and consider it an honor to take care of my patients.

The staff was great. From the checking girl, to the MA, to the MD. Brought back and roomed on time. Everyone was friendly! Doctor Baird is the best. She was so thorough and answered all my questions.

All the staff very friendly as usual. Minimum waiting time and very efficient (even though we came in too early for the appo). Dr. Baird is really good at keeping my daughter calm for any treatments.
