Douglass Hasell, M.D. – Medical Director
Doctor Hasell graduated from The University of California, Santa Barbara in 1982. Deciding that he wanted to become a Pediatrician and not a marine biologist as originally planned, he graduated from the Medical University of South Carolina in 1987 and headed back out to California for his Pediatric residency at the University of California, Irvine. It was here that he met his lovely wife who is also a pediatrician. After an almost 4-year stint working together overseas in beautiful Micronesia on the Island of Saipan, which is a US Commonwealth, they returned to California joining two friends in a practice in San Luis Obispo, California. In 1997 they relocated to Florida to start their practice called The Pediatric Specialist. Shortly after this Dr. Hasell was recruited by Rick Hess to take on the Medical Director position at the Child Protection Team of Pasco County. During the last 17 plus years, Dr. Hasell and his wife have grown their pediatric practice adding two more providers, one of which is an ARNP (nurse practitioner) Chris Pope, who has become an integral part of the Child Protection Team as well. This spring will mark the 18 year anniversary of Dr. Hasell being medical director of the Pasco Child Protection team which is now part of the larger Kids First agency. He has enjoyed being involved in working alongside the dedicated staff of the Child Protection Team in the important cause of protecting and being the voice of children who are victims of abuse and neglect.
