An important part of our regular checkup with your child is looking for signs of developmental delays, which may indicate Autism Spectrum Disorder. If you have any concerns about your child, at any time, please do not hesitate to let us know
We are all about building community, and our monthly newsletter allows us to do just that. Our newsletter provides information about fun, family activities in our community, the latest medical information from newborn care to vaccinations, and healthy recipes or fun crafts for your family.
This is where we get personal. Our patient portal is your key into our world. The portal allows you to request an appointment, get results to any labs or testing completed, find prescription information and stay on top of upcoming important dates for your child's healthcare.
Because giving great care is personal, people are our greatest strength here at Pediatrics of Queen Creek and the greater East Valley.
Everyone you meet here, from the first person who greets you, to the physicians that care for your child, have your child's health and happiness at heart. You, your children and your family are the reason for everything we do as providers.
We can’t wait to meet you! Call us today for an appointment. We also will do our best to accommodate same-day or next-day appointments.
Personal Solutions to Enhance Your Child’s Life
How wonderful it would be if raising a child was as simple as learning the ABC's. However, raising a child can be just as complicated as it is rewarding. We are here to help you navigate this often bumpy terrain. Here are a few areas in which we specialize:
Your baby has arrived and you are just thrilled! Perhaps, you are also just a bit overwhelmed. Our specialists will work with you and guide you through every question you have, big or small.
Chronic Illness Consultations
Chronic health conditions affect approximately 27% of children in the United States. A consultation with our physicians can provide the tools you need to help you and your child navigate and understand the best treatment plan for a chronic illness.
Children grow and change constantly, which is why well-child care is so important. During a well-child visit we monitor developmental factors, such as height, weight, hearing and vision in order to improve care and try to prevent any issues from arising. Well-child care continues into teenage years, providing a safe environment for the children to talk to their doctors about any issues or concerns.”
Diagnosing and managing asthma in children can be difficult. In infants and young children, the primary symptoms of asthma such as wheezing, coughing and shortness of breath, may be caused by other conditions. For these reasons, the management of asthma in children and teenagers requires careful and relatively frequent monitoring. We can work with you to help minimize asthma symptoms with a written asthma action plan that helps you monitor symptoms and adjust treatment as necessary.
If an emergency should arise, please call 911. Emergencies are considered to be those conditions that are life-threatening: loss of consciousness, severe bleeding, seizure, respiratory distress, etc. In the case of minor emergencies (superficial lacerations, cuts, sprains), please call our office and we will work you into the schedule as expeditiously as possible to help you avoid an expensive ER visit.

Dr. Gomez is amazing! We have seen her for six years now. I am very picky and changed doctors over 10 times before finding her. She listens and cares about her patients and is one of the only doctors that I trust.
We love Dr. Gomez! We’ve been seeing since 2010. She is great!!
The first time I came to see Dr. Emilia Gomez was for my first daughter. As a new mom, I had tons of questions and concerns. She answered everything I asked honestly and kindly. When I would bring my daughter for checkups she would remember her and details about her even though she had not seen her for a few months. Fast forward six years and I now have a second child who has seen Dr. Gomez and Dr. Emiliano Higuera. Dr. Gomez is still the kind woman I came in as a new mom. Dr. Higuera is amazing as well. He is so good with my girls. I wouldn’t take my kids anywhere else!
Fabulous pediatric office! We take both our kids to this office and love Dr. Higuera and his team. With a child on the autism spectrum and a pre-teen daughter, we have some communication challenges. Dr. Higuera has found a way to tap into both of my children and communicate with me as a parent as well. He is not pushy in his approach and the nursing staff is so wonderfully kind and patent. The office is quick to work with you, quick to get you in and has a great portal to check in on billing, diagnosis and prescriptions. I highly recommend their office!
