About Our Practice
Our practice was founded in Springdale in 1966 by Dr. Pedro Ponce,
who has since retired. Dr. Debbie Goodlander was next to join the
practice, in 1975. Dr. Susie Limouze and Dr. Paul Chirlin (both now
retired) soon expanded the practice further. As more doctors joined
and our practice grew, we recognized an opportunity to serve even
more patients throughout Greater Cincinnati, so in 1998 we opened
our office in Mason. Our practice now has 10 physicians and two
pediatric nurse practitioners caring for patients in both our
Springdale and Mason office.
