My name is Ken Akey, M.D. I am a Board Certified Pediatrician and Fellow
of the American Academy of Pediatrics.
I attended the University of California, Irvine, School of Medicine, and
have been blessed to be in private practice for over 25 years.
I love to practice a "one-on-one" Doctor/Patient relationship,
not using para-medical health providers as I very much enjoy getting to
know each child and his or her family!
I believe in helping parents provide a "moral compass" for their
precious children, especially during the often turbulent teen years. Close,
loving, family bonds, along with consistent discipline and respect for
parents, may well set the stage for success and happiness down the path.
My special interests are newborns, developmental pediatrics (behavior)
and nutrition. My "take home" for the kids is, "you are
what you eat."
When I am not at the office or at one of the hospitals, I enjoy church
activities, working out, and am eager to spend time with my wife, Laurie,
my four grown children, their spouses, and three perfect grandchildren.
While there are many choices in pediatric care in Southern California,
one thing that has become extremely unique in my office is you always
get the same doctor, with total continuity of care. My primary concern
is to provide quality care for the children of Southern California.
As very experienced pediatrician, my goal is to deliver the highest level
of medical care, connecting with each child and parent. Working thru challenges
(both medical and behavioral) gives me sincere satisfaction. I practice
one on one medicine, "where you only see 'one' doctor."
I sincerely love pediatrics!
