We appreciate the opportunity to care for your child. As specialists in examining and treating children from birth through young adulthood, our interest lies in both the physical and emotional growth of your child. We are also firm believers in fostering a healthy parent-child relationship with the hope that parenthood is a rewarding and fulfilling experience. Our goal is to provide the finest quality services to our patients in a comfortable and pleasant setting and to do so more efficiently and economically.
Mid-Ohio Pediatrics and Adolescents, Inc. is among one of the largest pediatric practices in the Central Ohio area. Since 1986, our office has been located in the community of Westerville, but we also serve the surrounding communities and school districts. With our longevity, we now have the privilege to serve a second generation of children.
A unique characteristic about our organization is that we are associates – one of our physicians is always available for office care or telephone consultation. During routine and follow-up appointments, you are able to meet with the physician of your choice. However, because we are a group practice, sick visits and emergency calls could be scheduled with one of the other physicians in order for your child to be seen as quickly as possible.
Dr. Frank Stroebel, one of the founding members of Mid Ohio Pediatrics passed away on November 18, 2019. We have lost a respected member of the pediatric community, a valued mentor, and a dear friend.
Dr. Stroebel joined the staff of Children’s Hospital in 1964. His leadership, clinical expertise, and dedication to the hospital helped it to grow into the outstanding health care institution it is today. In addition to being a wonderful clinician, he was known for his compassion, empathy, and sincere interest in all of his patients.
Dr. Stroebel joined the practice of Drs. Baldock and Kazsmersky in the late 1960s. He was the only one of the original three to move to our Copeland Mill location where he practiced until his retirement in 1997. After retirement, Dr. Stroebel continued to be active at Children’s. He and his wife Nancy also continued to be a part of the social activities of Mid Ohio Pediatrics. We were able to host Dr. Stroebel for a tour of our new offices this past summer
Dr. Stroebel is survived by his 3 children, 3 grandchildren, and one great grandchild. He will be missed by all of us who were lucky to know him. We extend our deepest condolences to his wonderful family, and feel very blessed to have had him as a part of our medical practice both as a senior partner and dear friend.

Beginning Monday, May 6, 2019, Mid-Ohio Pediatrics and Adolescents will begin offering Walk-In hours from 7:30am – 8:30am Monday through Friday. These walk-in patient visits are for established patients with acute issues only such as colds, earaches, coughs, sore throats, pink eye and rashes. Chronic or more complex issues such as headaches, stomachaches, chronic coughs, injuries and other complicated issues are best dealt with at a scheduled appointment. We are unable to see well checks during Walk-In hours.
The number of patients seen during Walk-In hours will vary day to day by how many physicians are available that particular day, the number of patients wanting to be seen and when the walk-in patients arrive. The earlier patients arrive, the better chance to be seen during the walk-in hours. Those patients who are not able to be seen during walk-in hours will be scheduled for a sick appointment early in the day.

Please be patient with us during our transition and we encourage you to ask questions of our physicians and staff during your child’s visit!
