Marshall Health expands pediatric office on Route 60

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – Marshall Pediatrics has expanded its 5170 Route 60 East office in Huntington, just off the 29th Street exit.

Renovations to the existing Marshall Pediatrics clinic include an expanded waiting room, which still features general and well-child areas, and the addition of the three new exam rooms.

Marshall Pediatrics, a department of Marshall Health, also added an additional physician at this site for both scheduled appointments and walk-ins. Aaron McGuffin, M.D., a board-certified pediatrician and associate professor of pediatrics with the Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine, is now accepting new patients at this location. McGuffin is no longer scheduling patients at Marshall Pediatrics’ Marshall University Medical Center office.

“Based on the volume of patients utilizing this location and our walk-in clinic, we needed to adjust the existing footprint in order to create a space that allows patients to wait comfortably while reducing the amount of wait time,” said Joseph Evans, M.D., chair of the department of pediatrics.

Additional board-certified pediatricians at this location are Jenna B. Dolan, M.D.; Brian S. Dunlap, M.D.; and Jay T. Naegele, M.D.

This site also houses Marshall Pediatric NowCare, which provides pediatric walk-in services Monday through Friday, 1 to 8:30 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday, 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

For more information or to schedule an appointment, call Marshall Pediatrics at 304-399-4422.
