Richel, (Peter Richel, MD)Peter Richel, MD, FAAP

Dr. Peter Richel (“Dr. Pete”) has practiced pediatrics at the Mt. Kisco/Smith Avenue office of Westchester Health Pediatrics since 1990. He has written a book, “Happy and Healthy,” focusing on wellness in the first year of life, and produced a CD of children’s songs entitled “Welcome to Dr. Pete’s Office.”


As well as taking care of children and their health, educating and entertaining them and their families is very important to me. To help them stay happy and healthy, I’ve created a book, videos, a CD and a TV series, discussing things like bike safety, puberty, OTC medications and toddler health.

I live in Westchester County with my family.
