The additions of Dr. Rigos and Dr. Goldsmith mark ProHEALTH Care’s commitment to providing patients of all ages with better access to quality care.

“When a child gets sick, parents don’t want to spend time worrying about when and how they’re going to book an appointment with the right specialist,” said Zeyad Baker, M.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of ProHEALTH Care. “A pediatrician with a subspecialty allows for a quicker and often more accurate diagnosis so treatment can start sooner. Our mission is to provide better access to care and pediatric specialists help us deliver on that promise.”

Dr. Rigos is Board Certified in pediatrics and is fellowship trained in pediatric cardiology. Dr. Rigos diagnoses and treats conditions such as congenital and acquired heart disease and arrhythmia. He also offers ambulatory cardiology services for patients as young as newborns.

“Having a child with a heart problem can be very scary for parents and kids,” said Dr. Baker. “Dr. Rigos’ compassionate approach coupled with his cardiac expertise and state-of-the-art office provides families with the comfort and exceptional medical care they need. In addition to the clinical needs of the patient, Dr. Rigos believes it is important to address the concerns of their parents, and strives to ensure parents understand their child’s cardiac healthcare every step of the way.”

Dr. Rigos’ office accommodates same-day appointments when possible, and is equipped with cutting-edge echocardiography machines and ambulatory arrhythmia monitoring. This technology focuses on providing a comprehensive and detailed diagnosis of congenital heart disease—helping young patients receive the care they require with accuracy and precision.

Dr. Goldsmith is a well-known name in pediatric ENT (Ear Nose & Throat Specialist, also known as an Otolaryngologist). Nationally recognized for his expertise and compassionate bedside manner, Dr. Goldsmith is board certified and fellowship trained in pediatric otolaryngology.
