A Commitment To Service And Teaching:
In addition to serving our patients, we believe it is important to serve children in need locally and abroad. We are active participants in the following organizations:
- Lighthouse Medical Missions which sends medical missions trips to Africa on a biannual basis.
- Gene Black Summer Internship Program through the Los Angeles Pediatric Society
- Claris Health which offers free and low-cost medical, educational, and support services to women in need in West and South Los Angeles.
A Team Approach:
At Pacific Ocean Pediatrics, we believe in a team-based approach in caring for your child. We have an exceptional team of accredited pediatricians, Robert Hamilton, M.D., F.A.A.P. Leian Chen, M.D., F.A.A.P., Noel Salyer, M.D., F.A.A.P. and Kelly V. Sidhpura, M.D., F.A.A.P. Each member of our team has their own unique style, but we all share the same general philosophy in treating patients.
For your Well Child visits, you may choose to see the same physician each time to maintain continuity and foster a closer relationship. When your child is ill, we want him or her to be seen as soon as possible, and that may mean seeing the ‘covering’ doctor from our team.
We also have a wonderful team of nurses and support staff that is here to help you and your child.
