Get to know Pediatrician Dr. Uwa Iguobadia, who serves patients in Warner Robins, Georgia.

Recognized as a trusted pediatrician, Dr. Iguobadia’s skills include children’s well-being, pediatric therapy, and family support. She sees patients at Lifeguard Pediatrics in Warner Robins, Georgia. 

Opening its doors on February 14th of 2005, Lifeguard Pediatrics has grown to two nurse practitioners, herself, and several administrative personnel on staff. The practice works hard to meet the needs of children from infancy through college, with compassionate, knowledgeable, and supportive staff being the cornerstone of quality care.

Born in Nigeria, Dr. Iguobadia and her family emigrated to the United States when she was two. Growing up in New Jersey, she completed her bachelor’s degree at Rutgers University and her Master of Public Health degree at University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. After working in the non-profit sector in Infant Mortality, she continued her education in the field of medicine. She graduated Cum Laude from the American University of Antigua College of Medicine.

While in New Jersey, Dr. Iguobadia met her husband, Barry, and they later married in 2012.  They relocated to Middle Georgia, where she completed her residency in pediatrics at Children’s Hospital Navicent Health and joined Lifeguard Pediatrics in February of 2017. 

A Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics (FAAP), the doctor is board-certified in pediatrics by the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP). The mission of the ABP is to advance child health by certifying pediatricians who meet standards of excellence and are committed to continuous learning and improvement.

Pediatrics is the branch of medicine that involves the medical care of infants, children, and adolescents. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends people be under pediatric care up to the age of 21. Pediatricians provide medical care to people ranging in age from newborns to young adults. They are trained to examine, diagnose, and treat children with a wide variety of injuries and illnesses through all of their developmental stages, as they grow and mature. 

On a more personal note, Dr. Iguobadia and her husband live in Warner Robins and have 3 children: Barry, Jr., Christopher, and Victoria, who are one-year-old twins. In her spare time, one can find her at the soccer field with her children.
