Paul Veldhouse, MD
Dr. Paul Veldhouse is a charter member of Milestone Pediatrics, founded in 2022.Previously, he was part of Forest View Pediatrics, which he joined in 2010 after earning his Doctor of Medicine from the University of South Dakota Sanford School of Medicine and completing a four-year residency at what was then known as Children's Memorial Hospital in Chicago through the McGaw Medical Center of Northwestern University.
Certified by the American Board of Pediatrics, Dr. Veldhouse maintains a special interest in newborn care, mental health including ADHD, family wellness, asthma, and teen issues.
"Dr. V," as he's sometimes called, traces his interest in pediatric medicine to high school when he volunteered to work with developmentally disabled youngsters at a long-term children's care facility. "I loved it," Dr. Veldhouse says. And while interacting with pediatricians who'd tend to the kids at the facility, he realized they "have the coolest job." He says his profession is at its best when centered on service.
That's the philosophy behind Milestone, which Dr. Veldhouse and his partners aim to make a true "family clinic" where relationships matter along with exceptional health care.
Dr. Veldhouse and his wife started out their family with three biological children, and the number has lovingly doubled through foster care and adoption. He and his family love the community here, and he volunteers with Boys Club at his church, Upward baseball, Safe Families, both locally on the Milwaukee board and on the state board for Wisconsin, and was the school board president during the pandemic at Brookfield Christian School.
Following a devastating earthquake in Haiti in 2010, Dr. Veldhouse volunteered in the Caribbean nation, administering medical care to children who'd been moved to tent camps because their homes were uninhabitable or unsafe. He has also volunteered in Peru and Honduras.
Even with a big loving family, Dr. Veldhouse finds time outside of volunteering to pursue other past-times such as "old man" sports like church softball, hiking, reading fantasy and sci fi, playing video games with his kids, and watching movies (especially if Spider Man is in it).
