John Zachary, MD, FAAP

Dr. John Zachary opened James River Pediatrics over 20 years ago.  He is the father of four children and “Poppo” to eight grandchildren (and counting.)  He received his bachelor’s degree from The University of Notre Dame and medical degree from The University of Loyola, Chicago.  He is a child at heart so when he is not taking excellent care of your children at the office- you can find him running, laughing, and playing with any/all of his grandchildren.  He resides in Midlothian Virginia with his beautiful wife of over 38 years, Karen.
