It takes a special kind of doctor to be a pediatrician. Children are not "little adults" and their specific health issues should be addressed by physicians familiar with those needs.
Finding a doctor for your child can be a very time consuming task. Here at the Mattel Children's Hospital UCLA, we have a variety of general pediatricians and subspecialists in our outpatient clinics. We also offer you the choice of location - you can come to the Children's Health Center on Westwood campus or see UCLA practitioners in our community sites. At UCLA, we believe that caring for your child is a privilege.
For a list of pediatricians and pediatric subspecialists, please use the UCLA physician directory. A list of major plans accepted by UCLA Health is available at www.uclahealth.org/healthplans.
Please note that a physician referral is required to see a pediatric specialist. For a physician referral, please call: (800) UCLA-MD1 or (800)825-2631.
