Dr. Kelly is wonderful. It's been a continued pleasure to have her as our pediatrician for both of our children. She is the reason we stay with the practice and continue to have our kids seen by a provider who is technically out of our network (Highmark).
Dr Kelly is the absolute best doctor! Thank you toBellvue Pediatricians for fitting my daughter into the schedule. It was our first time at the Bellevue office & everyone was so nice. The office staff and nurses are fantastic. I can't say enough good things about this practice!
Absolutely love Dr. Kelly! Couldn't ask for a more wonderful physician. She is so kind, knowledgeable and caring. Very generous with her time and always shows genuine concern. I have been a nurse for 25 years and know a good doctor when I see one. She is one of the best!
always a pleasure working with dr kelly we specifically ask for her!
Dr. Heidenreich is fabulous. The best doctor at this practice-by far. She is knowledgeable, respectful and caring.
Dr. Kelly goes above and beyond her duties. It is a relief and joy to have her as my children's doctor. She genuinely cares and is always helpful.
We absolutely LOVE Dr. Kelly Heindenrich and HIGHLY recommend her to friends and family. On more than one occasion she has taken the time to go out of her way to help us with medical concerns/needs and double and triple check on our older child. Dr. Kelly truly takes care of her patients, listens to and helps the parents, and has never left us wondering about anything concerning our children's health.
Dr. Heidenreich is an AMAZING pediatrician. She listens, cares, problem solves, and is truly child-centered. I cannot say enough good things about her!!!!
Dr Kelly is the best!
Very good visit, very friendly, knowledgeable doctor. Since my son is a teen and is taking medication, Dr. Kelly explained to him the dangers and complications on if he makes poor decisions for putting things in his body he shouldn't (like vape or drugs, etc.) I think all doctors should talk to teens about that. They hear it more than if just a parent says it.
Dr. Kelley is awesome. I always feel confident that she will provide the best care in an easy to understand manner.
excellent service and love the doctors
Dr. Kelly is the best! She is so knowledgeable, understanding, and caring. I always trust her advice.
I love this office, the front desk is super nice and easy to work with and I absolutely love Dr. Kelly. She is always to high energy and positive. She answers any questions we have and is very personable. I wish there were more doctors like her.
Always appreciate Dr. Kelly Heidenreich's attentiveness. She really know my children and I am glad when we are able to see her for our visits.
Dr Kelly is an excellent doctor.
This past visit was the worst doctor visit I have ever had. This doctor has a very strong bias towards following what I understand is a recommended procedure handed down to her for what every child should follow in regards in preventative health care. The problem I have with her, is that her priority is completely about satisfying her agenda for my child, rather than listening to my concerns and desires for treatment for my child. She took such a strong stance on the schedules for the vaccinations for my children, that the entire visit became a political argument. I had health concerns for my child who was ill at the time of the check up, and was trying to get him the help he needed to ease his sufferings from the symptoms he was having. After reviewing his chart and seeing that he was due for some vaccines, Dr. Kelly recommended that we vaccinate that day. I asked to hold off and have them be done when he was 100 percent healthy. Dr. Kelly disagreed, and proceeded to accuse me of being an anti vaccine mother. She went on about out breaks that are going on in the U.S. and went into detail about what happens to non vaccinated children, expressing several examples of how my child can die from not be vaccinated. After expressing that I don't appreciate her being aggressive and using fear tactics to expressive her opinion, she went on with the fact that I would have to sign paper work agreeing that I am declining vaccines for my children. Of course, this was all done in the beginning and I had to then sit there and cry as she finished the actual physical check up with my child. After crying off and on the rest of the day, I realized what she was accusing me of and then had to call back to get the documents, that I signed under stress, retracted. At the time of the appointment, I had my two boys. I have 2 older daughters. My daughters are vaccinated, my boys are vaccinated, but are behind due to being ill every time we have been in for check ups. If I had the chance, I could have expressed our situation better, but instead she chose to ignore me completely and make false accusations. I am now searching for a new practice for my children, one that will be more empathetic for my concern with vaccinating while my children are sick. I realize that Dr. Kellys beliefs and opinions mirror those of the practice, but the way that she expresses herself and fails to listen is behavior that is inappropriate for a pediatrician. I only pray that no other moms feel the same way that Dr. Kelly made me feel that day. Thank you for taking the time to hear my story.
Dr. Kelly is an amazing provider. She listens to our concerns and always provides a thoughtful response with an action plan. She truly goes above and beyond for her patients.

Dr. Kelly is absolutely wonderful! She cares for our daughter like it was her own child! She listens to our questions and gives us very detailed answers.

she was thorough and explained the treatment steps that would be taken.
We think Dr. Kelly Heidenreich is the best doctor there at Bellevue Pediatrics. She has seen our teen son since he was a baby, always recognizes us, and always gives excellent care and attention. We are always happy to get an appointment with her!

Absolutely love this doctor!
always above and beyond in patient care
Dr. Kelly was most attentive.
Dr. Kelly is just awesome. Always go above and beyond with any questions we may have. Highly recommend her!!
Dr. Kelly is a fantastic doctor but I wish she would slow down the pace of the visit just a little bit. It's consistent that things feel very rushed as soon as she walks in the door. I get excellent information and if I'm on top of my game that day I can keep pace with her, but otherwise I find that I leave forgetting to ask certain questions or not recalling information she shared because I was so focused on remembering what I wanted to ask or say next before she leaves the room.
Dr. Kelly always takes the time to make my kids and me feel welcome and connect. She is always engaging and speaks directly to the kids and respects them as patients.
Dr. Kelly spent a lot of time discussing all of our concerns and set up a treatment plan to address our concerns. She is consulting with other specialists to provide the best plan possible. She surpassed our expectations!
Dr Kelly is the best doctor anyone in our family has ever seen!

Dr. Kelly is extremely caring!! We love how understanding and kind she is when she meets with our child.
Dr. Kelly is amazing! She always makes my kids feel safe and comfortable to ask questions. We love her!!
Dr. Kelly was great. While I have no concern that she missed anything, she was fast in her evaluation. At a wellness visit, I like to know what is coming up or what I might be looking for as far as health and development in the next year. Also, a little more info on the vaccines given...even an info sheet or something like that would be helpful. My son had a common side effect some redness and hot to the touch at injection site for two days but I wasn't warned of that when given the vaccines in the office. Just a reminder of what to watch for would be nice.
Dr. Kelly Heidenreich is so good with my kids. She is very professional as well as funny and makes my kids feel very comfortable!
appointment scheduling hasn't been able to be done at the end of their visit because the appointment calendar doesn't go very far into the future. it would be nice to schedule future appointments at the end of our visit.
We love Dr. Kelly
I feel very lucky to have such a wonderful doctor taking care of my son.
We love Dr. Kelly! She always takes the times and speaks directly to my child, making her feel understood and listened to. She is kind and caring and listens to everything my child has to say. She gives great advice and addresses all of our questions. I highly recommend her to everyone!

I love dr Kelly and her nurse. They go above and beyond for the children at the doctors office. They make my daughter laugh and feel very comfortable going there. Highly recommended!
nothing but good vibes here
Dr. Kelly Heidenreich was very diligent in my son's care. She texted me my son's x-ray results after hours which I appreciated and called me the next day to let me know his follow-up care. I appreciated her care and think she went beyond normal expectations. Very pleased!

Love this practice
DR. Kelley Heidenreich is the best! Both of my teenagers have seen her since they were toddlers. She is warm , caring, thorough, and knowledgeable!
This was our first visit to this office, as we recently switched provider's. Prior to this visit, I was anxious about our decision to switch pediatrician's, but Dr. Heindenreich was WONDERFUL. She interacted so well with both of my children and made it an enjoyable experience for them (and me). I would highly recommend her to others.
we waited an hour and a half to see the dr even with an appointment this day. however, Dr. kelly is great at finding out what is going on with my child which is why we waited.
Dr Kelly listens and doesn't judge. she explains everything and doesn't rush
my only complaint was the wait time once we were in the exam room. it was at least 45 minutes if not more.
Dr Heidenreich was absolutely incredible. She took the time for my daughter to get used to her being in the room with us and then used all kinds of fun games and ways of getting my daughter to cooperate and allow Dr. Heidenreich to examine her. She is truly a pro. She also listened to everything we had to say, had helpful information to impart, and really made my husband and I both feel that she was not only very experienced and knowledgeable but that she actually cared about both us and our daughter. She is amazing. I will recommend her to others!
This was the first time we saw Dr. Kelly and felt she was excellent. She related well to my daughter especially since we only switched doctors because my daughter just turned 10 and decided she would prefer a female doctor. We had previously seen Dr Bitar every year for her wellness exam and he was excellent as well.
First visit--office was awesome getting him seen!! We are so happy with Dr. Kelly and the office staff.
Dr. kelly is amazing with children and their family. She takes the time to listen and truly cares about your concerns you may have. We trust her 100% with any information given. She always compliments on how well you're parenting and truly loves kids. She is wonderful!
Dr Kelly is one of the best docs - she knows her patients well, listens to patients and parents, and is extremely knowledgeable! she genuinely cares about all of we patients.
Dr. Kelly is the best doctor ever! She is so knowledgeable, kind, professional, and great with the kids. I recommend her to all my friends who are looking for a new pediatrician.
Best doctor in the city. And her colleague, Dr Alesha (sp?), was also superb.
We are new to this practice and have had a wonderful experience so far. We are very happy that we switched and are now part of such a great practice. Thank you.
We love Dr Kelly! She is a very caring and compassionate Dr.
We are new to this office and have really had very nice visits with both of my children
we waited for one hour and 5 minutes in the waiting room. ( we came a little early but still waited way to long) then we waited 20 minutes in exam room. Doctor came in for 5 or so minutes ( she was very very nice) but then left and we had to wait another 15 minutes till she came back again. she was very kind, but overall was a very frustrating experience. She did not offer to give her a flu shot either- now I have to go back. I line the Dr a lot but do not know if we can wait that long again???
love Dr. Kelly. she does seem to be in a rush, but I think that's the state of health Care today.
Dr. Kelly is excellent!!!
Dr. Kelly is always so good about listening to my concerns. I am impressed, and love, that she's supportive of me as a parent, and that she also understands where I stand as a mom in things like medications (I don't want to give it unless it's needed.) I always highly recommend her to anyone looking for a pediatrician.
Dr. Kelly is an amazing doctor. she is always professional and talks to my kids with ease.
She goes above and beyond to help my child and make sure I have the answers I need.

Great visit. My child really likes going to see Dr. Kelly.
We are big fans of Dr. Kelly. She is attentive, empathetic, compassionate, a good communicator, and best of all, her diagnoses have been consistently spot-on. She doesn't overreact or over-prescribe and I feel that I can truly rely on her recommendations and experience in making decisions about my children's health.
We love Dr. Kelly! She is thorough in examining my child, my child feels comfortable talking to her about anything, and she has a way of putting both parent at child at ease.
The wait time to be seen was not appropriate
Entire visit was good experience. very friendly
We waited over 55 minutes to be seen while in the exam room. it was the longest we've ever had to wait to be seen.
We love Dr. Kelly! She is so personable and knowledgeable, and she treats our daughter with such care and affection. We trust her completely, and always ask for her, if possible.
Dr. Kelly is amazing! So helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly. My kids love her!
Wonderful! Dr K talks to her enthusiastically and positively. Addressed concerns in very positive manner.
I love Dr Kelly. I will wait until she is available to see my son before seeing another provider.
Dr. Kelly is by far, the best!!!
