New blog post


Sometimes life brings us puzzling experiences, that make us pause. And time defines the needed change.

I have been a pediatrician for almost 17 years and have been blessed to work in various settings:  inpatient medicine with some teaching responsibilities, emergency medicine and private practice. God has blessed me with so many rich, educational and rewarding opportunities, for which I am so grateful. I know that I have a guardian angel, my mother, Queen Mary, who watches over me. Even though she is no longer here physically, I know that she is here, in my heart, guiding me. I have had to re-evaluate my life; my direction, goals. Where am I going? Am I being true to myself? Am I living my  true purpose?  Am I happy? I am so fortunate to have such wonderful family and friends who are supportive, encouraging, helpful; many  who want the best for me.

I am happy to announce that I have opened a new pediatric practice in Manhattan. My goal is to provide care to the whole child, engaging patients and parents in a collaborative team approach. So, it is with a joyful, grateful heart  that I introduce, my pediatric private practice, HARMON PEDIATRICS, located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, New York.

Thank you to my loving family, especially Mom, dear friends and acquaintances. The journey and purpose begin.

    Congrats, Ruby! My only regret is that the children in Liberia can't benefit from your qualifications and talent. I hope you and other pediatricians with roots in Liberia will open your hearts to their plight and find a means to provide them your very necessary services.
