I have been in practice for over 25 years in the Concord area. I am board certified in Pediatrics and have a fellowship in Neonatology (care of premature and high risk infants). I did my Residency and Fellowship at Westchester County Medical Center, affiliated with the New York Medical College.
My husband Ravi and I have a son pursuing MD/PhD program. He recently completed PhD in Neurosciences at Stanford University. Our daughter is UNC Chapel Hill graduate and is currently working in a Charter School Organization in New York City.
I love taking care of children and enjoy being with them. Children always come first and I firmly believe in their rights to quality health care, both physical and mental.
The physical, cognitive and emotional development happens during the early years of life and I feel privileged to be able to influence these formative years. I firmly believe in forming a strong relationship with the patients and their families.
Hemant Prakash, MD
I graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill School of Medicine and returned to my home state, Kentucky, to complete residency at Kosair Children.s Hospital in Louisville. I am board certifiedin Pediatrics. My family moved in 1992. I practiced in a large group setting for nine years. Then I had the opportunity to take a two year /mommy hiatus.. Those two years were the most rewarding and challenging of my career. My husband and I have four wonderful children. I returned to medicine with a renewed appreciation of family and community. Our family is active in youth sports, church and volunteer work. I joined Dr. Prakash at Concord Children.s Clinic in 2003, because of the personal, compassionate, and quality care provided by everyone in this office. It is an honor and privilege to participate in the care of your children.

Gardasil (HPV) vaccine is offered to all girls and boys 12 years and above. This vaccine is given in a series of three, the second given two months from the first and the last one given twelve weeks later.
We recommend yearly physicals for children ages 2-5/6 and then every other year until they reach puberty. It is then recommended that teenagers have yearly physicals.
State vaccines are administered for those immunizations that are required for entrance into school or college. However, there are several vaccines that are both state and private that are not required but are recommended for the health of your child. These vaccines are Prevnar, Rotateq, Menactra, Gardasil and Hep A.
If you have insurance then private vaccines will be given in these four instances. If your insurance does not cover the cost of these private vaccines then it becomes your responsibility to inform us so that state vaccines can be given instead.
There is also an administration fee included on your bill for every vaccine given. If your insurance does not cover that fee then you will be billed for that amount.
