I'm Dr Justin Schilz, the newest addition to the Lake Country family of providers. I look forward to meeting your family and serving as your consultant, to keep your little ones healthy, safe, and successful!
I grew up in 'Tosa as the middle of three children. My wife, Abby, grew up in the Racine area. All of our family reside in Southeastern Wisconsin, which drew us back to the area after ten years away. We are excited at the opportunity to raise our (now, three) boys, in the Lake Country area!
I graduated from UW-Madison, completing my medical education in 2006. I then began active duty with the United States Air Force, and completed both a residency and a year as Chief Resident, in the Norfolk area of Virginia. In the six years since, I have had the privilege of taking care if our nation's military children as their primary doctor in beautiful Colorado, splitting my time between Colorado Springs and the Denver area. However, Abby and I have always remained true to our Green and Gold roots!
I have been board-certified by the American Board of Pediatrics since completing residency in 2009, with recertification in 2016, and I have been a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics since 2010. As such, I will generally adhere to AAP practice recommendations when I discuss treatments with you, to include standard vaccinations on schedule.
I chose to practice at Lake Country Pediatrics for many reasons; the most important being the doctor-family relationship. As part of LCP, I am able to maintain that relationship with the best interests of you and your child in mind. At LCP we can provide your family with more personaliized care and the full range of options, all within the scope of sound and evidence-based medical care. My approach to each and every child is simple: listen first, ask enough questions, educate my patients and parents, and provide options whenever possible. I think you would agree!
I look forward to meeting and working with your family.
