Eve Wexler, MD, IBCLC, FAAP
Eve Oster Wexler was born and raised in Birmingham, Alabama. Her undergraduate education was completed at Brandeis University in Waltham, MA, where she received a Bachelors of Science in Biology and English & American Literature, cum laude. She then spent a year working at The Ohio State University in Columbus, OH, before entering medical school at Tulane School of Medicine in New Orleans, LA.
Upon graduating from medical school, Dr. Wexler completed her residency in pediatrics at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York, NY. She then stayed at Mount Sinai for a fellowship in General Academics and Health Evidence & Policy and as an attending in the Department of Pediatrics. Her years at Mount Sinai helped instill a love of teaching as well as a firm commitment to practicing evidence-based medicine.
After her first son was born, Dr. Wexler and her family relocated to the Atlanta area where she worked in private practice outside the perimeter. It was during this time that she realized there was a lack of available services for new moms needing support with breastfeeding. While nursing her 2nd son, Dr. Wexler decided to become a certified lactation consultant to help provide those services herself.
Dr. Wexler is very excited to be opening her own practice, with a focus on the values she finds most important in medicine today. In addition to lactation consultations, she has a particular interest in child safety, ADHD diagnosis and management, and health & nutrition. She is board certified in pediatrics and a fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics. Outside the office, you are likely to find her at the Atlanta Zoo with her family or at home reading a good science-fiction or fantasy series.
