Expertise of Ashtin Nix, MD
Ashtin Nix, MD, is a proud Kentucky native. She grew up in Jackson County and currently lives there with her husband.
Dr. Nix enjoys caring for residents around the area and, most importantly, forming lifelong relationships with the children and families she sees as a pediatrician.
She thinks caring for babies, children and families is much more than delivering medical care. It’s about listening carefully and getting to know her patients and neighbors in the community.
Her passion is caring for newborns and helping their parents establish lifelong healthy habits. She also enjoys supporting moms on their breastfeeding journey and studying lactation.
Graduating from the University of Kentucky Medical School in Lexington, Kentucky, Dr. Nix then went on to complete a residency in general pediatrics at the University of South Carolina in Greenville, South Carolina.
Since she understands the importance of habits that nurture the body, mind and spirit, she's intentional with how she spends her free time. Gardening, bird watching and baking cupcakes brings her a sense of peace and well-being.
