Janine Zee-Cheng, MD, FAAP, CPST, IBCLC
Board Certified in Pediatrics, Pediatric Critical Care, and Lactation
Adjunct Assistant Professor of Clinical Pediatrics at Indiana University School of Medicine
After nearly a decade working in the Pediatric ICU, I realized I wanted to return to my first love: primary care pediatrics. But I needed more time with my clients, and I didn't feel that I could get that in an insurance-based practice. Now I am overjoyed to be able to give the best possible care to the families I serve.
I am passionate about optimizing the mental health of children and adolescents, and am dedicated to maintaining an inclusive, antiracist, LGBTQIA+ affirmative practice.
