Dr. Lauren Hernandez

Hello to all my patients and parents! My name is Dr. Lauren Hernandez and I started Sprout Pediatrics with three other providers in 2020. I am so excited to show you our new facility and make you aware of all the exciting things we have to offer!

Getting to know your Pediatrician

I grew up in Arabi, Louisiana near New Orleans. I graduated valedictorian from Ursuline Academy in 2002, and earned my Bachelor’s degree in Biological Sciences from the University of New Orleans. I then went on to Louisiana State University School of Medicine in 2011 and received my medical degree.

Professional accomplishments

I am a board-certified pediatrician and Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics. I was awarded the The Stephen Osofsky Memorial Award in 2011 for outstanding performance during the pediatric acting internship. In 2014, I completed my pediatric residency at LSUHSC New Orleans Children’s Hospital.  I have been actively practicing pediatrics in the New Orleans area and have been consistently recognized as one of the top three pediatricians in the city for the past 5 years.

Getting to know me personally

I am married to Jonathan Hernandez, high school teacher and basketball coach, and we have three sons- Jax 7, Finn 4, and Emerson 1. I love my family and they keep me busy! I am also an exercise enthusiast enjoying biking with my family, vacationing at the beach, and did I mention keeping up with my three active boys? Lol!

As a partner at Sprout Pediatrics, I would love for you to learn more about our practice and of course our group of providers. Check out the Meet the Sprout Team page to learn more about Dr. Kingston, Dr. Glasgow, and our Nurse Practitioner Kendall Connick.
