Our medical staff is a special group of people. Our providers grew up in Ohio and have growing families of their own. They have all trained at the outstanding pediatric institutions we are fortunate to have in this region of the country. And, they have all come to Children's Choice Pediatrics because of our commitment to family-focused care. This common bond ensures progressive care that treats the person, not just the symptoms.
