Alison C. Nash, MD and Pediatrician

“I was born the same year my father, Homer Nash Jr., MD, opened his pediatric medical practice above a drug store in North St. Louis. That was the era of house calls and patients coming to our home for care. In those days, my father was often up all night returning phone calls from patients, but he was never irritated by questions. He always kept a positive attitude and that was the takeaway for me. You could work that hard and still be happy.

When I was in high school, I spent a summer working in Dad’s office. Seeing his love of the practice of medicine and the care of the children and families he served led to my decision to pursue a career in medicine.

Thirty years after my father founded his practice in 1955 as St. Louis Pediatric Practitioners, I had completed my medical training and joined his practice. The practice is now three generations deep—my daughter, Carole Dula Bell, MBA, eventually joined as our office manager.

Our office has been in its current location on Kingshighway Boulevard since 1965. We care deeply about our community and have chosen to stay in our North St. Louis neighborhood.

In 2016, we became WUCA – Nash Pediatrics, LLC, a proud member of Washington University Clinical Associates (WUCA). This group of select pediatric and adult primary care providers have access to the technological and consultative support of Washington University specialists and share the same excellence in care.

We are fortunate to have had the opportunity to build long-term relationships with our patients and are now treating families that have been visiting our practice for four generations. These deep connections embody our mission: providing excellent pediatric care in our community, from our family to yours.”
