Practice History

The practice of Nesbit & Minton is more than doctors providing care and treatment to children. It’s a continuation of a tradition that can be traced back almost 100 years. Originally started by Dr. William Mulherin, widely recognized as the father of Augusta pediatrics, the practice now known as Nesbit & Minton has provided a home for some of Augusta’s most notable pediatricians and care for generations of the community’s children.
