About Dr. Heffernan

Dr. Alison Heffernan was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana, and attended Louisiana State University for her undergraduate, medical school, and pediatric residency. Dr. Heffernan married her husband, Dr. Ted Heffernan, during medical school and both matched in New Orleans for their residencies. During the three years of her pediatric residency, they welcomed their first daughter and survived Hurricane Katrina. As their home and the city were rebuilt, she completed her residency in 2006.

While her husband, Ted Heffernan, MD, completed his radiology residency she worked in her first pediatric clinic with the Ochsner Medical System. In 2008, she, her husband, and now two daughters, moved to Nashville, TN. There “Dr. Ali” worked in a busy inner-city clinic with Centennial Pediatrics for a year, while Ted completed his fellowship in body imaging at Vanderbilt. In 2009, they moved to Cincinnati and have been here ever since!

Montgomery Pediatrics, Inc. was the perfect match for Dr. Heffernan. After working in two busy, corporate owned clinics, she knew she wanted more autonomy in how she scheduled her patients. Working in a privately owned clinic allowed her to spend more time with her patients and create a schedule that allowed her to care for her patients’ families as well as her own. She loves that general pediatrics offers the opportunity to discuss and treat all aspects of a child’s health.

She welcomed her third daughter into the world in 2012 which completed their family. She wants her patients to feel that she treats them as she would treat her own kids and loves watching them grow over time into their own unique individuals.

Dr. Ali loves pink and flamingos, and you can see her own flock walking down the hallway of the clinic! When she is not working, she loves to spend time with her family, cook delicious Southern food, entertain friends, read, play with her goldendoodle, nap, craft on her Cricut, organize anything she can get her hands on, and attend Pure Barre classes.
