Specialties at Adena Pediatrics
The pediatricians at Adena Pediatrics in Chillicothe, Ohio, live, work and play in the community so they see their patients not only when they are ill but also when they are involved in school, religious, or sporting events. Pediatricians are specialists trained to treat children from birth to 18 years old. The doctors at Adena Pediatrics are board certified through the American Academy of Pediatrics, which means they bring the latest care and treatments to your children. Pediatricians deal with congenital defects, genetic variances, and developmental issues more often than doctors who primarily treat adults.
The pediatricians at Adena Pediatrics, located in the Adena Medical Office Building, take care of newborns, children, and adolescents, offering preventive health maintenance for healthy children and medical care for sick and chronically ill children. Parents can choose the provider from within the practice that they prefer.

- Well child check-up: Physical exams help determine growth and development, as well as early detection of possible medical issues. Preventive care is important to keeping children healthy. Pediatricians discuss childhood milestones with parents during office visits.
