Commonwealth Pediatrics - Helping Families Raise Healthy Children

Our Staff

Robin Lynn Feese, M.D.

Robin Lynn Feese, M.D. - Commonwealth PediatricsLike many young girls, Dr. Feese had a hard time deciding what she wanted to be when she grew up. “I wanted to be it all — a mother, teacher, policewoman, hairdresser, doctor,” she says. “Today as a mother of four and a pediatrician, I am all those things!” Dr. Feese joined Commonwealth Pediatrics in 1992 upon completing her pediatric residency at UK. She and her husband, Steve, enjoy traveling, especially with their children: Jason, Andrew, Heather and Landon. Memories of the family’s trips are often captured in scrapbooks, one of Dr. Feese’s favorite hobbies.
