Antonio Riera, MD, FAAP

Pediatrics, Pediatric Emergency Medicine


Antonia Riera, MD, is an attending physician at Yale New Haven Children’s Hospital specializing in emergency medicine. He says his daily motivation comes from promoting the “safety and well being of children every day.”

“Our doctors in Yale Medicine Pediatric Emergency are leaders in clinical, academic and research arenas,” Dr. Riera says. “We as a team have resuscitated patients who have been treated in the hospital with excellent outcomes. That is most rewarding—helping families, providing the best pediatric emergency care, and guiding children and caregivers through stressful situations.”

Dr. Riera’s clinical and research interests include the use of bedside ultrasonography to improve outcomes in children, and the relationship between language, communication and asthma care disparities for Latino children. He is an assistant professor of pediatrics (emergency medicine) and of emergency medicine at Yale School of Medicine.
