Prevea offering pediatric services in Shawano

Prevea Health now offers full-time pediatric care at the Prevea Shawano Health Center, 1300 E. Green Bay St., Shawano.

Care is provided by Dr. Jeffry Young, a board-certified pediatrician who offers routine care for children and adolescents including preventive medicine, same-day appointments, well-child visits, sick visits and sports physicals.

Young has been practicing pediatrics at Prevea Health for more than 25 years, most recently at the Prevea Allouez Health Center. He moved his practice to the Prevea Shawano Health Center, where pediatric-specific health care services were previously unavailable.

“I enjoy all areas of pediatrics — from tots to teens,” Young said. “When caring for patients, I treat the whole person and not just the illness.”

Young graduated medical school at the University of Osteopathic Medicine and Health Sciences in Des Moines, Iowa, and completed residency at the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha. He is certified by the American Board of Pediatrics and is a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Appointments with Young can be made by calling 715-201-0870.
