The Roots of Brighton Hill Pediatrics

Almost 50 years ago, three community pediatricians, Drs. Francis M. Shields, Raymond J. Cassady, and Martin C. Ushkow joined forces and “opened up shop” at 600 East Genesee Street. They were joined in 1976 by Dr. Stephen H. Mintz. In 1990, Dr. Linda Imboden joined the group and Dr. Mintz decided it was time to move the practice to its current location at 151 Intrepid Lane and “Brighton Hill Pediatrics”, as we are known today, was born.

Dr. Kathryn G. Webster joined the group shortly after the move in 1991. In 1993 Dr. Cassady retired and Drs. Joanne G. Rosser and Margaret Hellems-Stanley joined the group. As time passed, the group has been blessed with the additions of Drs. Barbara Anne Morisseau (2001) and Michael K. Soeder (2003) and in February 2015, Derek P. Gorski. We added Dr. Elizabeth Cassalia in January 2019, Dr. Lauren Carlyle in March 2019 and Dr. Wanda Averhart in 2021. We have wonderful pediatric Nurse Practitioners: Tammy Erwin, and Stacey Muscolino.

Through all the changes over all the years, one thing has remained constant – our dedication to providing the highest level of pediatric care for all of our patients.
