Orange Pediatric Care, P.C. is based in New Windsor, New York. Dr. Paul Latonero, MD, FAAP, started Orange Pediatric Care back around 1976 and has been serving Orange County and surrounding communities since then. Dr. Maria Bernardez bought the practice in 2010 and has carried on the tradition of Orange Pediatric Care, caring for children and families with quality and compassion. We have families who have been with us for several generations. That is, we now see the children of the children that Dr. L initially saw!

We are proud to serve families and children from Beacon, Fishkill, Cold Spring, Wappingers, Glenham, and surrounding areas.

We are a "large, small practice." By that, we mean that we have a large and loyal following of families who have been with us for a long time. We consider them family.  We have also grown and are happy to meet new families and welcome them to our practice. At the same time, we are small enough to give every family personalized and compassionate care, the attention they deserve.

We love meeting families who are new to the area or are having their first child.

Dr. Maria Bernardez brings a friendly, youthful vitality to "her kids" and has a delightful bedside manner. Her training and experience include child psychology and behavioral health issues.  She is always willing to explain the pros and cons of any procedure or medication and to take the time to answer any questions you may have.

Our Philosophy

At Orange Pediatric Care, P.C., we believe in developing a solid relationship with parents and children. We want you and your child to be comfortable with the doctors and our staff. Our touchstone of "quality, compassionate, and personalized care with a doctor that you and your child will know and trust" can make visits to the doctor less stressful and a better experience for everyone. Confidence for you and confidence for your child is a highly comforting factor in selecting health care for your family, which is why Dr. Bernardez is a board-certified FAAP Pediatrician.

We believe that you and your child should be comfortable going to the doctor and have a positive experience, not a traumatic one. Our staff will take the time to talk to you and explain what they are doing and why. They will gladly answer all your questions. At Orange Pediatric Care, P.C., we are proud to know our patients well.

New Patient Forms


I am so grateful to have been recommended Orange Pediatric Care by a few friends several years ago when my daughter was born. We love Dr B and all of her staff. They are friendly and professional, knowledgeable and helpful. The waiting area is entertaining for children (we never have a long wait but my daughter always wants to stay and play for longer!).

Dr. Bernardez and staff are very friendly, polite, courteous, and helpful and take great care of my daughter. We have had an excellent experience at this office and will continue to use them. The waiting room is really colorful and lots of fun stuff for kids to do as they wait to be seen. The wait is never long to be seen in our experience.
