Dr. Iyekepolo always knew she wanted to be a pediatrician. “I chose this specialty because I knew I would have a special opportunity to be a part of so many families,” says Dr. Andrea Iyekepolo. “I get to be an active participant in a child’s life starting at birth all the way to adulthood”.

As someone who has spent many years traveling all across the world, Dr. Iyekepolo is looking to lay down roots. “I have been to so many places, looking for an environment that suits me best- an environment with comradery, where I can establish long-term relationships with my patients and their families. I am confident I have found that here.” Iyekepolo notes that by spending so many years traveling to such a wide variety of communities, she is able to adapt quickly and efficiently to meet a community’s and patients’ needs.
“PHC Pediatrics is very excited to welcome Dr. Iyekepolo, “Dr. I”, to our practice. We are looking forward to being able to offer more visits to our patients, and we are all happy about the special care that Dr. I will bring to our group,” says Dr. Julie Schopps, MD with PHC Pediatrics.
