Mercy Pediatrics

Your children are our specialty.

When it comes to caring for your kids, experience counts. Trust matters. Making you feel right at home makes all the difference. At Mercy Pediatrics, our team has the expertise your kids need and the personal approach you deserve.

Founded nearly 40 years ago by Dr. James Shumaker, Mercy Pediatrics has a long-standing history of caring for your children. In 2014, Mercy Pediatrics relocated to its current location on 548 Lone Oak Road in Paducah. The new, state-of-the art clinic is more accessible for patients and beautifully decorated by local artist Kijsa Housman. It features separate sick and well waiting rooms, a dedicated breastfeeding room, on-site imaging and lab services, and a procedure room. With the addition of Dr. Emily Brame in 2015, Mercy Pediatrics is now able to offer on-site behavioral health services for established patients.

From well-child care and immunizations to illnesses and managing complex medical conditions, the Mercy Pediatrics team can help you with any of the following:

  • Well-child exams
  • Sports physicals
  • ADHD screenings
  • Healthy living clinics
  • And more
