About Us

At Chesterfield Pediatrics, we feel your child’s healthcare is our most important priority. We believe a child’s health is a partnership between the family and a pediatrician. We strive to bring the most current, compassionate care to each of our patients and family members. Our physicians consist of Dr. Arlene Harrington, Dr. Nowsheen Ahmed and Dr. Barry Auerbach. These practitioners have made an ongoing commitment to lifelong learning and advocacy for children. Our physicians strive to take the time to make each patient feel like a special part of our family by providing exemplary service on a personal level.

To also serve you, we have experienced certified pediatric nurse practitioners, Karen Kish, Katie Creed, and Dana Kleinschuster. One of our nurses takes calls on evenings, weekends and holidays. You will receive a call back from one of our providers who is familiar with your child, rather than from an outside call service. Chesterfield Pediatrics is the practice who brought customer service back to healthcare.
