Atlantic Coast Pediatrics was the first pediatric practice in Cocoa Beach, Florida in the early 1960's. The practice began with Dr. Eugene Hadden and his close friend and associate Dr. Heimer. He was joined through the years by Dr. Van Vonderen and later Dr. Harlow.
The practice spread to Merritt Island in the 1980's when pediatrics reached across the bridge and in early 1990's Dr. Mike Radu joined the practice when Dr. VanVonderen retired. Dr. Radu has since left the practice to join his wife in a medical practice at another site.
In 1992, Dr. Luis Gonzalez came to ACP from Arnold Palmer Hospital where he served as chief resident. In 1993, Dr. Lisa Cosgrove joined ACP after having a pediatric practice in Little Rock, Arkansas. A welcome addition to our office came in 1995 when Donna Calvelli, ARNP joined the practice after working in Weustoff''s nursery for many years and graduating from the University of Miami School of Nursing in 1979. October 2013 we welcomed our newest addition to the medical staff is Julie Ronhaar, ARNP who has been a pediatric nurse for many years.
Atlantic Coast Pediatrics is a multicultural practice serving children from nations across the globe. We have a staff who can meet the needs of our Spanish-speaking population with their interpreting services.
