Los Angeles is a bustling city with a diverse population, and finding a great Los Angeles pediatrician can be a large task for parents. A pediatrician is an essential part of your child’s healthcare team and can play a crucial role in your child’s development and well-being. With so many options available in Los Angeles, it can be challenging to determine which pediatricians are the best for you. I remember feeling overwhelmed when trying to choose the right one for my own daughter, but also wanting to stay close to home so I knew they were right on our doorstep.
Here are some highly recommended Los Angeles Pediatricians that I would definitely recommend taking a look at.
Integrative Pediatricians and Medicine is located in Studio City. Joel Warsh is a Board-Certified Pediatrician who specializes in Parenting, Wellness and Integrative Medicine. He worked in private practice in Beverly Hills before founding his current practice, Integrative Pediatrics and Medicine in 2018. Dr. Joel Gator may be best known for his popular Instagram Dr Joel Gator where he offers weekly parenting and integrative pediatric support. He has a great way with children, making them feel comfortable during the visit and is always extremely helpful.
California Kids Pediatrics have two locations in Los Angeles, one located in West LA and the other in Torrance. Dr. Leila is a Board Certified Pediatrician, a fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics, and founder of California Kids Pediatrics. She is very attentive to her patients and really cares about her job. Each room in the office has a different animal theme which the children love. You won’t be disappointed here.
This office is structured into two sides – a “well / routine” side and a “sick/urgent” side, with 2 separate entrances and separate equipment for each side. Patients are required to have an appointment which can be scheduled Monday through Friday between 8:30am to 5pm, with plenty of same-day sick appointments and well child visits available. There are three doctors in this office, each with their own wonderful style. They are caring, thorough and knowledgeable. Dr. Monica Asnani was selected as one of Los Angeles Top Doctors of 2020.
Larchmont Pediatrics is a wonderfully caring and family-centered pediatric office located in Larchmont Village. They pride themselves on providing compassionate, comprehensive medical care to children from birth through adolescence. They offer a full range of pediatric care including prenatal visits for expecting parents, well-child check-ups, immunizations, and sick appointments. All of the staff are caring and very helpful.
Pacific Ocean Pediatrics is located in Santa Monica. Founded in 1996 by Robert C. Hamilton, at the time of writing this blog, the practice is comprised of Robert C. Hamilton, Noel Salyer, Lily Marouf, Karina Eastman, and Dennis Woo. They believe in a team-based approach in caring for your child. Each team member has their own unique style, but all share the same general philosophy in treating patients. Dr Hamilton and all of the doctors at this practice are incredibly knowledgeable, kind and welcoming.
