Our Mission

At River Hills Pediatrics, we believe in personalized care of your child, whether that child is an infant, toddler, grade school student, teenager, or college student.

As your Northern Kentucky pediatrician, we want your child to be healthy, successful and happy. We are your child’s advocate in all aspects of care; we will facilitate well and sick care, testing, referral to specialists, and communications with school.

Our entire staff is committed to these goals. As a team, we will communicate with you, understand your needs, and accomplish the goals that are before us. We will do everything we can to make and to keep your child well, as he/she grows into a unique individual.
