History of Chester Pediatrics
In 1981, after finishing his residency at the Medical College of Virginia, Dr. Shayne founded Chester Pediatrics as a place where families could come and receive personalized education-focused care. At that time, the residents of Chester and its surrounding communities were having to travel significant distances in order to receive health care for their children. .
Our original practice consisted of Dr.Shayne and one other dedicated employee, Beverly Zervakis, who is still part of the Chester Pediatrics family in the position of Nursing Supervisor. Chester Pediatrics was located in a much smaller building near our current main office. After also completing his residency at the Medical College of Virginia, Dr. Campbell joined as the second physician at Chester Pediatrics in 1986. In 1989 we moved into our current primary office on Buckingham Court in Chester. In 1996 we expanded to open a second office in the Centre Court office building. This office has since moved to our current location across from the Chesterfield Courthouse. Our staff has grown to more than thirty employees including 6 physicians and 2 nurse practitioners. Over half of our staff has been employed by Chester Pediatrics for over ten years. We truly feel like a family at Chester Pediatric and look forward to meeting you and your family.
During the past forty years, our primary goal has been outstanding, compassionate care. We hope you will give us the opportunity to serve you!
