About Pediatric Associates, Inc

Pediatric Associates has been caring for the children of central Ohio since 1960. We are pediatric specialists who care for children from birth through age 21. Our vision and mission is to provide excellent, compassionate medical care for your children for generations to come. We have five convenient offices to better serve our patients throughout the area.

Our physicians have all completed an approved residency in the specialty of Pediatrics. While we are a large practice with several offices, we strive to make each office YOUR medical “home” where you can see familiar staff members as well as physicians for the comfort of your child and yourself. Our goal is to make you and your child to feel as comfortable as possible while providing the best medical care we can deliver.

Our History

Our practice began in 1960 when Dr. Malcolm Robbins and Dr. Willard Fernald decided to join together. They created a practice on the east side of Columbus, and soon were joined by Dr. Adelaide Sauers, thus becoming one of the first practices in Ohio to have a female pediatrician. The practice continued to grow to five physicians, and in 1992, we opened our first “satellite” office in Pickerington, which has now become our largest office. We have added locations in Hilliard and Polaris to better serve the west and north areas of the greater Columbus area. In 2010 our Polaris location moved to Lewis Center to provide more access for our patients in Delaware County as well as those in the northern area of Columbus. In September 2020 we opened our Canal Winchester location to better serve Fairfield County and the surrounding area. We continue to be a leader in the central Ohio medical community, being one of the first practices to have multiple offices, and one of the first medical offices to convert to electronic medical records.
