12 Board Certified Doctors Serve the Bluegrass

PAA-LogoFor 55 years and counting – since it opened in December 1959 – Pediatric and Adolescent Associates has provided exceptional health care to countless numbers of children in the Bluegrass.

Today, PAA’s staff of 12 Board Certified physicians, who combined hold more than 250 years of medical experience, have delivered on PAA’s mission of providing “the highest quality of care in a compassionate and friendly environment.”

PAA stands out among practices in the area for several reasons.

It is the area’s only pediatric office with in-house X-ray and moderate lab capabilities, which means parents can get test results without leaving the office.

For example, PAA can do blood work and tell whether a patient has a bacterial infection, so that patients can receive treatment right away.

PAA also is open 364 days a year, closing only on Christmas day.

The practice is committed to staying open every day “until the last patient is seen,” according to Practice Administrator Martina Denny.

Just before Christmas this past year when flu-like symptoms were widespread in the area, doctors saw patients as late as 8:30 p.m.

Same-day sick appointments are offered as well as comprehensive medical care for infants, children and adolescents.

In 2012, a Well Clinic was opened, providing a separate area for children who are not sick to come in for checkups.

PAA features a patient-friendly staff of 55-60 employees who believe in teamwork and enjoy working with each other.

In 2012, PAA was voted one of the Best Places to Work in Kentucky.

Along with administrative staff and billing office personnel, the staff includes registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, medical assistants, and x-ray and lab technicians.

Dr. Charles Ison, one of PAA’s pediatricians, has been a Lexington Family Magazine columnist for 17 years.

PAA has two locations in Lexington. The 3050 Harrodsburg Road office has been open since 2001.

In 2007, a second location was opened at 171 North Eagle Creek Drive. Doctors rotate between offices.

PAA doctors have been voted Mom Approved Pediatricians by Lexington Family Magazine readers, and the practice has been a Family Favorite for four straight years.
