Dr. Jillian Klein has been welcomed as “Best in Medicine” by the American Health Council in recognition of her contributions to the field of pediatric medicine.
Throughout her life, Dr. Klein has always held a natural affinity for children, and a love of seeing the progression from baby to adolescent through to adult. It was this ingrained passion, along with her enjoyment of the pediatric care process that led her to take up her current profession as a staff physician.
Having decided upon her chosen career path, Dr. Jillian Klein obtained her MD from the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, graduating in 2005. She then completed her residency in Pediatrics at the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center.
Having worked for twelve years within the healthcare industry, Dr. Klein has spent the past 3 of those years in her current role of Staff Physician at West Side Pediatrics in Cincinnati, OH. For over half a decade, the independent group of board-certified pediatricians at West Side Pediatrics have been dedicated to providing compassionate and personalized care for all patients – including infants, children and adolescents through to twenty-two years of age. West Side Pediatrics provides acute, chronic, and preventive medical services as well as coordination of care with specialists, serving as a personal medical home for every patient. The organization actively partners with parents in order to provide the best possible care for every child.
The main services provided by West Side Pediatrics include pediatric medicine and pediatric medical education. Dr. Klein’s daily responsibilities include primary clinical care, well visits and treating walk-in illnesses. The hospital sees 18,000 patients every year, with most coming from the indigent and underserved population.
Prior to working at West Side Pediatrics, Dr. Klein spent 10 years working at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital in the primary care clinic, as well as, caring for newborns at The Christ Hospital nursery. Her primary medical focuses include childhood obesity and pediatric behavioral/mental health.
Dr. Klein attributes her success to the hard work she has put in throughout her career, and to the opportunities that were offered to her through the 13 years with Cincinnati Children’s programs. Dr. Klein is honored to serve on the CPS Board and frequently speaks on topics of childhood obesity management. She is also a member of The American Academy of Pediatrics, while her professional accomplishments include her board certification in pediatrics.
