Pediatrics of Akron is a group pediatric practice that has been serving the Akron, Cuyahoga Falls and Northeast Ohio children from birth through college age for over 50 years. Our practice consists of Pediatricians and Pediatric Nurse Practitioners. Our physicians are certified by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). Our Pediatric Nurse Practitioner is also nationally certified in providing pediatric primary health care.
We believe that every child and family is unique. We seek to promote optimal growth and development as your child grows to become an independent, caring individual. We attempt to bring the most up-to-date scientific information to the practice of pediatrics as well as the art of medicine and compassion learned in a combined 175 years of experience.
From birth through adolescence, you can count on our caring dedicated team to provide the comprehensive care your child deserves at either our Akron or Cuyahoga Falls office. Your child is precious to you and to our community. His or her well-being is the primary reason for our professional existence. We look forward to many years of helping you protect, nurture, and educate your child. We hope to make your experience at the pediatrician's office as useful and pleasant as possible and we would appreciate any suggestions for improvement.

Thank you for your ongoing patience and understanding during the COVID-19 outbreak. Our first priority is your child's health and well being.Therefore, we are making changes to our current scheduling process. We recommend delaying any non-urgent healthcare visits over the next several weeks so we may limit exposure for all. During the upcoming weeks,should your child develop cough and acute onset of fever and they appear to be mild,it is recommended your child be kept at home and away from others. Most cases of COVID-19 are mild and can be managed at home. Utilize social distancing, good handwashing for 20 seconds and avoid touching your face to limit spread of illness. Should your child develop more severe symptoms such as shortness of breath, please call our office or seek emergency room care. Should you have any further questions or concerns about your child's health, please do not hesitate to call our office. We will continue to remain open and continue to provide care to your family as we always have. Thank you again for your committment to POA as we continue to strive to keep our patients and families healthy! Please refer to the websites below for the most up-to-date information.
