My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

As a board-certified primary care physician, I nurture close relationships with my patients and provide them with the same compassionate and personal medical care I would expect for my own family. In my smaller MDVIP-affiliated family practice, similar to a concierge practice, I have the time to get to know my patients well beyond their immediate symptoms. I have the tools to proactively address all areas of health from nutrition, fitness and emotional well-being to managing chronic illness.

With my 25 years of experience, I offer families comprehensive care - geriatrics, "well-woman" examinations, including pap tests, and well-child and adolescent exams. I also have extensive experience dealing with urgent care, dermatology, minor office surgery, casting of simple fractures, joint injections and numerous other procedures. In a world of 10-minute care, my patients are perhaps most impressed that I dedicate two to three hours for their comprehensive wellness appointments. I offer same-day/next-day visits, am available during and after hours and all appointments begin on time and are unhurried. My patients are a part of an old-fashioned practice with state-of-the-art medical technology.

My Bakersfield, California office team is awesome! Everyone is friendly, compassionate and dedicated to making your visits efficient and memorable. As a personal doctor, my goal is to guide my patients on a path to optimal wellness so they can enjoy healthy, active lives. We serve patients in Bakersfield, Tehachapi, the Kern River Valley area, Lamont, Delano, Arvin, Shafter and throughout Kern County. I see patients at both Mercy Hospital of Bakersfield and Mercy Southwest Hospital.

My husband and I have been patients of Dr. Hiedrick for many, many years. Most often times when we call for an appt. we get in the same day which is wonderful, and he addresses our concerns immediately. After I had hip surgery, which was performed in Los Angeles, back in November of 2000 I had to see him as I was having pain in the back of my knee and seemed to be getting more painful.
