L. Louise Tetrick

MD, FAAP

I was born in Indianapolis and attended North Central High School. I initially attended the University of Colorado, but transferred to Indiana University where I received my BA degree. I then attended Indiana University School of Medicine and received my MD degree. My internship and Pediatric residency were at Methodist Hospital, Indianapolis.

I am married and have two grown daughters that I am very proud of and enjoy spending time with. In my spare time I like gardening and traveling.  

On March 1, 2017, I began working PRN (this often used medical abbreviation literally means “as needed”) for Northpoint Pediatrics.  This change has allowed me to spend more time with my recently retired husband.

NOTE:  Dr. Tetrick is one of our PRN physicians, filling in as needed.  If you wish to schedule an appointment with her, please let the scheduling team know when you call in.
