Mark Newstadt, MD
Pediatrician in Louisville, KY
I am originally from Johannesburg, South Africa and attended medical school at University of Witwatersrand. I met my wife, Robyn, in medical school. We graduated in 1981 and were married one week later.
In 1982, I completed internships in medicine and surgery, and a senior internship in cardiology. I spent the next four years training in Pediatrics (internship and residency) in Johannesburg and outside Soweto.
In 1987, as a result of political unrest, our family immigrated to Louisville, Kentucky, where I had to complete another three-year Pediatric residency to fulfill Kentucky licensure and American Academy of Pediatrics requirements.
I am a fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics, a
certified diplomate of the American Board of Pediatrics and an assistant clinical professor at the University of Louisville School of Medicine, and help to provide supervised clinical clerkships to medical students and residents in our office. I have served on various committees at Kosair Children’s Hospital and lectured to the Pediatric residents.
My wife, Robyn, is a family physician, working for Norton Healthcare’s Community Medical Associates at Audubon Medical Plaza. We have five children. Our oldest, Kim, and twin boys, Gregory and Justin, were born in South Africa, and Benjamin and Hanna were born in Louisville. In addition to general Pediatrics, I have a particular interest in behavioural Pediatrics and attention deficit disorder. My outside interests include tennis, running and travel.
