Our History

North Florida Pediatrics was founded by Dr. Frank Walker in 1982. A few short years later, Dr. William Simmons joined Dr. Walker. The office staff consisted of just two doctors, two nurses, and a receptionist. The practice began  to expand with it's growing number of patients to meet the needs of Tallahassee residents. Dr. Anna Koeppel joined North Florida Pediatrics in 2008.  In 2011, we opened our new office on Maclay Boulevard. When Dr. Simmons retired in 2016, Dr. Robert Kickish joined our team. We are continuously growing and improving as a practice and have recently added another team member, Dr. Maci McDermott.

Since 1982, North Florida Pediatrics has been committed to providing the highest level of pediatric care to infants, children and adolescents in Tallahassee and the surrounding areas. Our doctors, nurses, and highly trained staff use the most current and accurate medical information while treating patients and their families with an outstanding level of compassion and reasoning. It is our mission to help parents become the advocates of good health for their children so they can grow up and achieve their fullest potential.
