You can understand a lot about a family if you know the background of the community and are part of the community. I want to have that strong community feel and connection with my patients.
Krista Allen, MD



Born and raised in Cincinnati, I’m glad to work as a pediatrician close to home. I love serving and caring for kids. My approach to pediatric care is simply to be open and honest with kids and their families.

I try to keep interactions with my patients conversational, without lectures or judgments. Ultimately, I want to understand a family’s goals and challenges, so we can solve them—together.

I’m board certified in general pediatrics, but I really thrive in newborn medicine, especially helping first-time breastfeeding moms. I also love working with adolescents, supporting the transition from childhood to adulthood and all the challenges that come with growing up. For me, it’s all about making a close connection with the patient.
