Dr. Kiehl’s Retirement

We announce the retirement of Dr. Phyllis Kiehl with joy and regret, as she moves on to other adventures in life. Dr Kiehl will be retiring at the end of September, 2017, after over 4 decades of caring for Alaska children and their families. She founded LaTouche Pediatrics along with the late Dr. Jon Lyon, and together they created an innovative pediatric practice that has thrived and grown over the years to meet the needs of its patients. She is looking forward to more time to spend with family, and to travel and adventures both in and outside of Alaska.
She and her husband plan to remain in Anchorage, where she expects to see many former patients and families she has cared for over the years.

Dr. Norm Herron, Pediatrician Extraordinaire

Dr. Norm Herron is our newest Pediatrician coming to us after practicing for 25 years in Ketchikan, Alaska! We are honored he has found his new home in Anchorage and at LaTouche Pediatrics!
In Ketchikan he worked as one of three pediatricians on the island.  The pediatric practice in Ketchikan includes providing clinic and hospital care for patients from newborn to young adult with all kinds of medical problems. He enjoyed working with specialists to care for patients with chronic and complex medical conditions so that children could remain in the community for most of their care.   He attended deliveries, medevaced very sick patients (when the Southeast Alaska stormy weather allowed!), and delighted in seeing the children of Southeast grow up.
Practicing in a rural setting, he came to especially enjoy helping families of children with complex medical conditions, chronic diseases, and ADHD.
Every February from 2011-2016, He traveled to El Salvador with PeaceHealth for a weeklong medical mission. Dr. Herron greatly enjoys helping and getting to know the people of El Salvador, and he hopes to do medical missions again in Central America and the Caribbean.
