Our Paediatrician Team
Dr. Heather Bhan
My name is Heather Bhan and I've been working as a paediatrician in Belleville for the past year. I completed my medical school and paediatric training at McMaster University in Hamilton where I also practiced for my first few years. I love paediatrics because I love spending time with and treating children and am always amazed at what I learn from them!
Outside of work I love to figure skate (well not as much anymore, but I still love to watch it), hike, run, swim and do pretty much anything outdoors.
I'm so happy to be a part of QHC Pediatrics department and to help care for your children!

I completed my residency training in paediatrics at the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) and have been working all over the GTA and beyond, including New Market, North York and Belleville. I have spent some time in Nunavut and enjoy traveling the great white north!
I have a passion for general paediatrics and particularly enjoy neonatal and hospital medicine. I also have an interest in developmental and social paediatrics. I cannot wait to meet you and your family!
