Marshall Health expands pediatric care in Teays Valley

SCOTT DEPOT, W.Va. – Comprehensive pediatric specialist care is now available at Marshall Health – Teays Valley.

Pediatric Allergy and Immunology, Endocrinology, Nephrology and Developmental Behavioral Pediatrics will outfit a new pediatric subspecialty clinic on the second floor of Marshall Health-Teays Valley, located at 300 Corporate Center Drive in Scott Depot.

“The growth of these services is critical for our patients,” said Susan L. Flesher, MD, professor and chair of pediatrics at Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine. “In most cases, we are talking about chronic conditions that require ongoing care and management that improve quality of life. The closer to home these services are, the less time our patients spend outside of school traveling to and from doctor appointments.”

The new clinic includes the following existing specialist providers:

Rose Ayoob, MD, a dual board-certified, fellowship-trained pediatric nephrologist, specializes in hypertension, acute and chronic kidney disease, urinary tract disease, kidney stones, and metabolic bone disease. Amanda Dye, MD, a dual board-certified, fellowship-trained pediatric endocrinologist, specializes in diabetes, thyroid disease, and disorders of puberty and growth. Mary Beth Hogan, MD, a board-certified pediatric allergist and immunologist, specializes in asthma, allergic rhinitis, anaphylaxis, atopic dermatitis, and food allergies. Meagan Shepherd, MD, a triple board-certified pediatric allergist and immunologist, specializes in food allergies, asthma, contact dermatitis, and primary immunodeficiency disorders.

Marshall Pediatrics also added Beth Emrick, MD, to its team of specialists. Emrick is a fellowship-trained, board-certified developmental behavior pediatrician. She specializes in diagnosing and treating ADHD, autism spectrum disorder, learning disabilities and developmental delays. Emrick received her medical degree from West Virginia University in Morgantown, West Virginia, followed by a residency at the Charleston Area Medical Center in Charleston, West Virginia, and a fellowship at Akron Children’s Hospital in Akron, Ohio. Emrick is an associate professor of pediatrics at Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine and is certified by the American Board of Pediatrics with subspecialty certification in Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics.

Marshall Pediatrics has been caring for general pediatric patients, newborn to 18 years, in Teays Valley since 1997. Marshall Health – Teays Valley opened in 2017 and brings together Marshall Health services in cardiology, dermatology, internal medicine, laboratory/X-ray, mammography, neurology, obstetrics and gynaecology, orthopedics and pediatrics.
