Philosophy of Care

It is a privilege to be involved in the care of children and their families. My goal is to be a part of your team, and to offer supports in all areas of health and development. I try to ""think out loud"" so patients and families know why I make the recommendations that I do. Always listening to their questions and ideas so that we can make a plan together that everyone feels comfortable with.


Dr. Heather Diskin grew up locally in Acton and attended Colgate University prior to earning her medical degree at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. From a young age she aspired to have a career working with children, and her love of science made Pediatrics the perfect choice. She did her pediatric training at the MassGeneral Hospital for Children and has been practicing in primary care since 2008. She lives in Boston with her husband and their cat Bailey; they enjoy cooking and spending time outdoors.
