Michelle Steffen, , MD, FAAP

Michelle Steffen MD, FAAP

Dr. Steffen is a board-certified pediatrician and has been practicing pediatrics since 2001. She graduated with honors from the University of Louisville School of Medicine and completed her residency at the nationally recognized Cincinnati Children’s Hospital with an emphasis in primary care pediatrics. After four years working in the emergency department at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, Dr. Steffen transitioned to primary care pediatrics in northern Kentucky. In 2012, Dr. Steffen and her family relocated to Pawleys Island, South Carolina, where they fell in love with the beautiful landscape and the warm and inviting community. She has practiced pediatrics in Georgetown since relocating and could not imagine a better place to care for children and adolescents.

Dr. Steffen’s interests include early childhood development, pediatric mental health, parenting support, and oral health care. Since moving to South Carolina, Dr. Steffen has championed several pediatric programs in Georgetown including Healthy Steps for Young Children, Reach Out and Read, Legacy for Children, and the AAP’s Brush, Book, Bed primary care pilot program.

Dr. Steffen is a Clinical Assistant Professor in the MUSC Department of Pediatrics.  She is a member of the American Academy of Pediatrics and Alpha Omega Alpha National Medical Honor Society.  She previously served as the SC American Academy of Pediatrics co-Chapter Oral Health Advocate and co-Chair of the Early Childhood Physicians Advisory Council.  

Dr. Steffen’s greatest joy can be found in her family. She has four beautiful and rambunctious kids and an equally busy husband with a necessary excellent sense of humor. Medical training in pediatrics combined with the practical “education” in parenting involved in raising four children provides a unique perspective for families that Dr. Steffen enjoys sharing in the office.
