Longtime Tulsa Pediatrician Retires After 50 Years

Through 50 years of pediatrics, various medical advancements, and the potential eradication of mumps and measles, one thing has remained the same.  “I’ve had a lot of fun”, Dr. Stephen Adelson, 78,  remarks in his quiet office one May Tuesday morning at Utica Park Clinic.  With the 15th Edition of Textbook of Pediatrics resting on the bookshelf behind his chair, Dr. Adelson sits and thinks about how those 50 years have led him to this point.
