Joanna Dupont, M.D., F.A.A.P.

General Pediatrician

Dr. Dupont is a board certified pediatrician. She attended Loyola University where she received her Bachelor’s Degree. She then attended Texas Tech University Medical School, and completed her residency in pediatrics at East Carolina Medical School. She is board-certified in pediatrics and is a member of the American Academy of Pediatrics.

While she offers many pediatric services, she feels especially passionate about her work with children that have developmental issues, asthma, and ADD/ADHD. If Dr. Dupont’s patients want to put a big smile on her face, all they have to do it ask her why she loves Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood and Daniel Tiger! To her, it’s always a beautiful day in the neighborhood.

Leximary Foshee

Pediatric Clinic Manager

Leximary is a Certified Medical Assistant and the Biloxi pediatric clinic leader. She was born and raised in Interlachen, FL and currently attends college at Santa Fe College in Gainesville, FL. Leximary is most inspired by her parents who she says never gave up on her and showed her unconditional love, things that have shaped her into the person she is today. She is happily married to her high school sweetheart and although she does not have children, she plans to have children someday once her education is complete.

Leximary enjoys seeing all of her lovely patients and might just have a few things in common with them! Her favorite superhero is the web slinging hero in red and blue spandex, Spider-man! While her preferred cartoon show is Tom & Jerry, a show that many parents are likely familiar with. Leximary’s favorite quote is: “Let all that you do be done with Love.” 1 Corinthians 16:14. She wants her patients to remember that loving others means putting away our selfish desires. You never know what someone else is going through, therefore acting out of love can make anyone feel loved.

What Is A Pediatrician?

Pediatricians are doctors who manage the health of your child, including physical, behavior, and mental health issues. They’re trained to diagnose and treat childhood illnesses, from minor health problems to serious diseases.

Pediatricians have an education that gives them special skills to take care of your child’s health. They graduated from medical school and completed a 3-year residency program in pediatrics before working as a pediatrician in a pediatric clinic.


What Does A Pediatrician Do?

They’ll see your child many times from birth to age 2 and once a year from ages 2 to 5 for “well-child visits.” After age 5, your pediatrician will continue to see your child every year for annual checkups (aka well visits). They’re also the first person you should call when your child is sick.

To take care of your child, your pediatrician will:

  • Do physical exams
  • Give your child vaccinations
  • Make sure your child meets milestones in growth, behavior, and skills
  • Diagnose and treat your child’s illnesses, infections, injuries, and other health problems
  • Give you information about your child’s health, safety, nutrition, and fitness needs
  • Answer your questions about your little one’s growth and development
  • Refer you to specialists if they think your child needs expert care.

Does My Child Need A Pediatrician?

Some reasons why your child needs a pediatrician are:

  • They have years of special training in children’s health.
  • They only see children in their practice, so they have a lot of experience in recognizing and treating childhood illnesses.
  • If your child was born early or has a health condition that needs close monitoring, a pediatrician may offer more specialized care.

How Much Education Does A Pediatrician Get?

They need to complete four years of college, then four years of medical school, and then three or more years in an accredited residency program for pediatricians. A pediatrician must first graduate from medical school before going on to specialize in the field of pediatrics.
