Pediatric Research in Office Settings

Partnering with the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), we have been involved in research to improve the lives of all children. One project was the Flu2Text Study which was funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) – Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health & Human Development (NICHD). It has been published in JMIR Formative Research at this site: https://formative.jmir.org/2023/1/e39576 and ACI open https://www.thieme-connect.com/products/ejournals/html/10.1055/s-0043-1763270 We are currently enrolling participants in another AAP study to help answer some questions we all have about Covid in children.

10 year anniversary

Balance Pediatrics has been in Downers Grove for 10 years! It has been a very rewarding decade taking care of your children, watching them grow in good health, and confidence. The last 3 years were no doubt challenging, but we pulled through, we beat the pandemic, and are ready to face the next 10 years with courage and renewed energy. Though the toll has been enormous, we stay strong and continue to support our children who also carried a huge burden. https://balanceweightcenter.com/

10 years and counting.....

What our Patients Say

"Dr. Akin has treated my two kids since birth. We love her gentle demeanor and attention to detail. She is great with the kids and has helped us treat a number of things from RSV to allergies."

"Dr. Akin is one of a kind! We are so very lucky to have been referred to her through another doctor when we had our first child. As first time parents of a preemie, our anxiety ran high in regards to our babies health, growth and development. Dr. Akin was there for us every step of the way."

"She is truly amazing. She is great with my kids and my kids love her. She is way to get a hold of and you can tell she truly cares. Highly recommend if your looking for someone you and your kids will love."

"Outstanding service! From the moment you walk in there's always a warm welcome and there's always a very small wait time. I can really rely on Dr. Akin with my children's health."
