Carolyn J. Hirschmann, D.O.
Before joining The Children’s Medical Group in 2015, Dr. Carolyn Hirschmann’s education and experience spanned some of New York State’s finest institutions, from Cornell University to Cohen Children’s Medical Center.
Dr. Hirschmann believes in helping families set the foundation for lifelong good health for their children: “What inspires me most as a pediatrician is supporting kids’ innate, natural tendency toward good health by assuring they are growing well, engaging in healthy habits, providing the necessary resources, and empowering children to make healthy decisions.”
An advocate for positive parenting, Dr Hirschmann believes in fostering emotional intelligence from the beginning. She is a certified lactation counselor and believes strongly in supporting the parent–baby dyad.
Dr. Hirschmann enjoys travelling the globe and experiencing new places as well as exploring her own backyard in the beautiful Hudson Valley with her husband; two young boys; and dog, Luna.
