We’re happy to welcome our newest provider,Jen Hensarling, NP , and her warmth and talent in providing patient education. We take pride in getting to know our patients and their families, and encourage open and friendly communication to meet their health care needs.Choose your doctor Many of us remember the way medicine used to be- growing up with the same doctor whom your family knew and trusted. We remain committed to those same old-fashioned ideals, and enjoy practicing in a smaller, more personalized private practice setting. Since we’re not a large clinic, our patients can always see the doctor of their choice for all well checkups and usually for sick visits. Our experienced staff knows our patients and their preferences, and is always willing to try to schedule patient requests for the pediatrician of their choice. Our providers look forward to getting to know you on a personal level and to building a long term relationship with you.  Dr. Nathan Rendler  "Open and friendly communication is most important in helping me provide personalized health care to patients and families"   Dr. Nathan Rendler  grew up in the Midwest, and attended the University of Cincinnati for undergraduate studies and the Medical College of Ohio at Toledo for med school.
