Where I practice
Hello and welcome to my Web page! My name is Heidi Deyro, but the kids like to call me Dr. Heidi. It is my pleasure to share some information about me to help you feel more comfortable when we meet.
I am originally from the Philippines and I treasure our culture's dedication to family (and extended family). My family moved to Chicago when I was in middle school and this is where I spent most of my life until after residency. I have been working with children since my teen years—babysitting, tutoring, working as a camp counselor, volunteering at children's hospitals—and my passion for educating children was what inspired me to become a pediatrician.
About my practice
I believe that providing great health care starts with listening to members and their families. My goals are to provide high-quality compassionate care based on current research and to focus on educating members about their physical, emotional, and social health. Let's work together to ensure a healthy and thriving future for our children!
How I thrive
My grandmother used to tell us, "Take care of your body and it will take care of you". I do the things I love, which include spending quality time with my family and friends, being active, and continually learning about things I find interesting. I enjoy being in nature, from hiking to spending time on the beach. There is something so humbling about being a part of something greater than oneself. The kitchen is my happy place and I enjoy cooking my mother's recipes as well as experimenting on new culinary delights!
