OUR STORY

“It is not about what you leave for the children that counts, it’s what you leave in them.” This true depiction of what a legacy means to Dr. Kris and the staff members of KION Pediatrics sets the tone for the cornerstone of the practice.

At KION Pediatrics, it’s about connecting, passion, and service. There’s a synergy that is created between your family, your child and Dr. Kris and he is as passionate about your kids as he is about his own. The staff at KION are steadfast in the belief that service is the seed that is required to be planted in order to manifest the harvest of success. What better way of starting to change the health, mindset, and well-being of a generation, a nation, and of a world, than starting with our children - the leaders of our future.

We firmly believe that every child has a gift that is needed to advance the generations to come. If we can see to the wellness of a KION Kid, then we have realized our dream and played a small role in the advancement of our civilization. Dr. Kris has dedicated his life to achieving this and many more goals. We’d love to chat with you even if you are not yet a parent, or are expecting your very own blessing. You will soon come to realize, as many before you, that a KION Kid today will produce a healthy leader tomorrow.

Physician

Dr. Kris Nwokeji

I’m excited about the chance to be in partnership with the parents and caregivers in the management and wellness of their children. Wellness to me means a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. As regarding sickness, I try to look outside the box when a patient comes through my doors. I consider your normal illness, but I also evaluate for the least likely situation and the worst-case scenario.

Kris is a great doctor. I don’t just say it because he’s my husband, but he is truly awesome at what he does.

It has been a lifelong dream of mine to find a place where my love for medicine, pediatrics, and community can unite, and I have found that at KION Pediatrics. As a Primary Care Pediatric Nurse Practitioner, I have the pleasure to champion children through every stage of development from infancy through young adulthood. There is such joy in becoming a resource for families through developmental milestones like learning to walk and talk to every sickness and broken bone! I love KION pediatrics because it allows me to instill health and hope to the sweetest population there is, our kids!

Six years ago, while he was caring for my children was a life changer! As an amazing physician he’s shown the up most care and support for my children’s health. I was blessed to become a part of his team in March 2019. In such a short period of time he has become more than my employer… My mentor. Here at KION Pediatrics we are more than a team, we are family.
