About Us

Riley Physicians, a partner with IU Health Southern Indiana Physicians, is the pediatric group serving south central Indiana.  Comprised of the pediatricians and pediatric nurse practitioners from IU Health Bedford Physicians, IU Health Morgan Physicians and the former Southern Indiana Pediatrics, we make up one of the largest and most experienced pediatric practices in the state.

Each of these offices and its providers has long served the communities in which they are located.  For example, the former Southern Indiana Pediatrics was founded in 1995 on the philosophies of pediatric care and a commitment to excellence for our community, which brought James Laughlin, MD, Richard Malone, MD and Debra McDaniel, MD together to care for the kids in our region.

As part of Riley Physicians, we aim to provide an expanded array of general pediatric and specialty services for our patients throughout our 11 county service area.  We’re committed to excellence in the care of sick children as well as promoting health through immunizations, well child care and community education. With more than 20 board certified pediatricians and six pediatric nurse practitioners and offices in Bloomington, Bedford and Martinsville, Riley Physicians is proud to offer expert care throughout southern Indiana.

Since children don't get sick on schedule, Riley Physicians is open and staffed 365 days per year. In addition to our regular office hours, we offer extended "after-hours" appointments through our Urgent Care Clinic at our Landmark Avenue office in Bloomington and our office in Bedford. X-ray and Lab services are conveniently located on site in both locations.

With our Riley Physicians partners throughout the state, we offer pediatric specialty clinics for pediatric cardiology, neurology, urology and psychology, general surgery, genetics, allergy, gastroenterology, autism and child development at our Arlington Road location in Bloomington. And, in partnership with IU Health Bloomington Hospital, the IU Health Children’s Therapy Center at this location provides dedicated pediatric physical, occupational, and speech therapy services.

We understand that the relationship between a child, parents and pediatrician is an important one. We are committed to our partnership with parents and their children to achieve optimum health and development for their children.
