Dr. Jacqueline Hernandez, DO FACOP

My name is Dr. Jacqueline Hernandez and I am the owner of Star Life Pediatrics and a board-certified pediatrician. {And that is what FACOP means ;-)}
I graduated from New York College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2009 and went to residency in both Good Samaritan Hospital and Winthrop University Medical Center. I have practiced in hospital setting, outpatient federally qualified health center and private practice and then I felt it was time to spread my wings and fly and open my own practice. I have always had a passion in taking care of children. Since I can remember, I always taken care of children either by babysitting, working at a daycare, being a Sunday school teacher or an assistant choir director. Then I went into the field of medicine and it became very clear to me in my medical school career that being a Pediatrician was meant to be. Since, then I have combined both my love for medicine and children into giving the best health care possible to my patients and families alike. However, I always felt that it is important to give the talents, gifts and skills that one has to those who need it the most. And so, another passion of mine is medical missions. I have been to a few countries to provide health care to children who are in desperate need of medical care throughout the world, and my vision is through Star Life Pediatrics to continue to provide quality health care to my patients in the office and around the world.
Star Life Pediatrics came from a vision in which each star is a representation of a life. In every parent or guardian eyes their child is the star of their life and what better way of having a pediatric office which represents the heart of so many who care for children. As a pediatrician each child that I care for is a star in my life and so Star Life Pediatrics came to life. My hope is that when you come to the office you see my life’s passion of medical missions and that your child feels comfortable, loved and encouraged. So, I hope to see you and the stars in your life at the office soon.
