About Us

Stepping Stone Pediatrics is the new private practice of Dr. Bob Kim along with Certified Nurse Practitioners Tanya Wilcox and Holly Smith.  Dr. Kim and his team have served the Northwest Cobb area for over a dozen years as part of a large multispecialty health system winning several awards as “Best Pediatric Practice” in the area, but only recently ventured out as an independent practice.

In that time, Dr. Kim has fostered several key relationships in the community and been instrumental in the health and wellness of all the children entrusted to his care.

Our Philosophy

All of the staff at Stepping Stone Pediatrics are committed to delivering the very best care for your child. This includes:

  • Being as transparent as possible, allowing you to be informed and involved with any decision regarding the health of your child
  • Putting patient service first, ensuring that every experience you have at our office is as pleasant and professional as possible while delivering outstanding medical care
  • Being committed to all of the children and families in our community – a community that has supported us for over a decade and been the basis for our success

Dr. Kim

Dr. Kim received his undergraduate degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, his MD from the University of California-San Diego, and served his residency at Yale University.
