Our Story > History


Pediatric Associates of Kingston  Established in 1967

Our office consists of pediatricians, nurse practitioners, physicians assistants, lactation consultants, certified asthma educator, along with a comprehensive Pediatric trained clinical staff, patient service representatives and business office, who team up to deliver expert Pediatric care to 30,000 patients from the Wyoming Valley region.

Through the years we have cared for thousands of babies and children. Many parents in our practice were patients here as children and now look to us to provide medical care to their children and families. To us, this is the highest compliment to our committment to caring for your children. And why we take pride in our mission...'Taking Exceptional Care of the Next Generation Since 1967'.


Pediatric Associates opens in 1976- built specifically for two medical groups, Pediatric Associates of Kingston and OB-GYN Associates. The two groups were both pioneers in their respective practices in the Wyoming Valley.

Dr. Joseph Klein, MD and Dr. Sheldon Klueger, MD, both well known and highly respected Pediatricians, formed a new group practice welcoming a new Pediatrician to the area, Dr. Edwin L. Lyons, MD.

Early in 1970- the untimely death of Dr. Kluger, leaving the practice to function with two physicians until joined by John C. Gaudio, MD in July of 1971.

Following the Agnes Flood in June of 1972, the practice had to function and operate out of two connected mobile homes at the far end of the parking lot. While the devastated office was essentially completely rebuilt using the original plans.
