Joni L. Wooldridge, M.D. is a native of Louisville.  She doesn't remember actually deciding to be a doctor, but after reading "M*A*S*H" in the seventh grade, the rest is history.  Following graduation from Pleasure Ridge Park High School, she completed her undergraduate and medical degrees at the University of Louisville. 

Dr. J. loves Penguins!

Dr. Joni  in action.

Dr. Joni was first affiliated with this practice when she did a rotation with Dr.'s Stoutt, Wright, and Howard as a junior medical student in 1984.  She thought Dr. Stoutt was just kidding when he told her that she would be his associate one day, but apparently not, because following her graduation from her pediatric residency in 1988, he hired her.

Many of you know that she and Dr. Thompson played together in a rock band, formerly known as rockdox.  Dr. Joni sang, played keyboard and rhythm guitar, and could shake a mean tambourine!  Other interests include travel and needlework, and she is an avid book reader.

Her special medical interests in medicine are allergies and asthma.  She was board certified in pediatrics in 1989, and recertified in 1996.  She is also a member of the American Academy of Pediatrics, a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatrics, the Kentucky Pediatric Society, and Phi Chi Medical Fraternity.

Dr. Wooldridge decided on her career very early!
