Speciality: Pediatrics


Physician Bio

We are pleased to introduce Jared R. Wortham, DO, board-certified pediatrician.

For babies, infants, and teenagers, he offers a full range of care—from annual check-ups, immunizations, and sports physicals to preventative care and diagnosing and treating chronic conditions such as asthma, depression, and obesity in kids. In addition, he treats sick children and minor injuries, including fractures, dislocations, and lacerations. He will evaluate a child’s physical, emotional, and social development as part of the well visit. He prescribes medications, such as pain relievers and antibiotics, and provides general health advice. Further, he diagnoses and treats various medical conditions and connects families with other specialists, if needed.

“My priority is safe, individualized, evidence based, and high-quality care,” says Dr. Wortham. “I firmly believe that every interaction with parents and children should demonstrate empathy and interest in their well-being.”

When Dr. Wortham is not practicing medicine, he enjoys spending time with wife and four kids, playing video games, reading sci-fi fantasy novels, watching cartoons, skiing, rock climbing, hiking, mountain biking, and RZR driving.
