Washington Heights Pediatrics owner Dr. Maria Pilar Barbery M.D.F.A.A.P. graduated from the University of San Simon in Bolivia at the top of her class. After passing a battery of tests in the State of New York to validate her medical license in the U.S., she went on to train at Mount Sinai/Elmhurst Hospital in New York, where she completed her Pediatrics Internship, Pediatrics Residency and Fellowship in Pediatrics Ambulatory Care and Emergency Medicine.
After working with Pediatrics Specialties of Queens, a large pediatrics practice in Jackson Heights Queens, Dr. Barbery transferred to West Care Medical, Pediatrics at St. Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital, where she remained for three years.
Despite living on Long Island, Dr. Barbery decided to serve the community that reflected her Hispanic roots and most needed her services by deciding to open her practice in Washington Heights. She embarked upon a new adventure in opening her own pediatric practice: Washington Heights Pediatrics.
Ron Barbery joined her to administrate the growing practice in 2009, leaving a 35-year career as an International Transportation Consultant in the fashion industry.
