About Ross F. Prochnow, MD

  • Dr. Prochnow enjoys reading, writing books and poetry, rock tumbling, exercising, and walking with his wife.  He and his wife, Valerie, whom he met in high school, have five children.  He is a member of numerous professional  medical organizations, and served as an Air Force pediatrician for seven years, during which time he held several leadership roles. Dr. Prochnow believes that his training as a pediatrician, combined with his own practical experience as a parent, enables him to provide the best of a well-rounded approach to your child's medical care.

I will do my very best in serving you and your family as your pediatrician. I enjoy questions you might have about your child and am always willing to talk to you about any concerns you may have.
