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.
