Edith S. Pilzer, M.D.

Dr. Edith Pilzer was born in Dayton, Ohio. After graduating from Emory University she returned to the buckeye state where she graduated from The Ohio State University School of Medicine. She thereafter returned to the South. She completed her pediatric residency and pediatric gastroenterology fellowship at Emory University. She has been practicing in the Atlanta area since her fellowship completion in 1986.

During Dr. Pilzer's fellowship she was exposed to most aspects of pediatric gastroenterology and enjoys the wide variation in the disease spectrum of such a specialty. Though many of the patients are only seen a few times, there are several patients that she has followed for much of their lives, watching them grow and thrive, and even attending a few weddings of former patients.

Though Dr. Pilzer sees patients with a wide variety of conditions, she has a special interest in the patients with cystic fibrosis (CF). Many people feel that this is a disease of the lungs, but it is a complex condition affecting much of the GI tract. She therefore attends the cystic fibrosis clinic several half days per month as there are now more than 160 pediatric patients seen in the CHOA CF Clinic at Scottish Rite.

Dr. Pilzer has been on many of the hospital and administrative committees in the past. She sees patients at the primary Atlanta office and travels to both Fayetteville and Athens.

Dr. Pilzer has been married for nearly 30 years (to the same person). She has two grown 'children', both in postgraduate programs. She has strong family ties and loves watching sports (especially her Buckeyes). When not working, she has several hobbies including cooking, bridge, mahjong, golf, and walking (she has completed 8 half marathons).
