    Drowning Prevention

    Drowning is the leading injury-related cause of death for children age 1–4. It doesn’t only happen when you are by the pool or at the beach; drowning can happen anywhere, even in one inch of standing water. Among children under age 4, 70% of drownings happen during non-swim times. It is quick and it is silent, but it is preventable.

    We can reduce drowning and save children’s lives by working together to implement safety measures we know will protect children. For a comprehensive list of resources and water safety tips, go to

    Dermatology available at Pediatric Associates Starting July 19th!

    We are excited to announce that Dr. Kara Shah will be working at our Cold Spring office one day a month.  Dr. Shah is a board certified pediatric dermatologist with her own practice in Kenwood. Prior to starting her practice she was the Director of Dermatology at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital.  If you would like to see Dr. Shah please call our office and set up an appointment.  We will determine if we can help with the issue and if not we will refer you to her.  We expect to always be able to get you in with Dr. Shah sooner than with other dermatologists in the area.  


    Nutrition Classes Postponed

    The nutrition classes at our Cold Spring office will be postponed until this fall. We will send out updates once we have more information.


    Expanding Check-Up Hours

    We know how challenging it can be to squeeze in all the responsibilities that you and your family have. Our patients have asked for more availability for school and routine check-ups later in the day and we heard you! Pediatric Associates is proud to announce that we will have availability for Tuesday and Thursday evening check-ups in the Crestview Hills office this summer. We also have limited checkups available on Saturday mornings as well. We expect these appointments to be very popular, so call soon if you would like to take advantage of this opportunity.
