Keeping medicine in the family

March 30, 2016

Sharp father and son pediatricians Drs. Mohammed and Ahmad Bailony.

Drs. Mohammed and Ahmad Bailony are pediatricians affiliated with Sharp.

Dr. Mohammed Bailony’s affiliation with Sharp HealthCare began in 1981 not only professionally, but personally as well — his first son was born that year at Sharp Mary Birch Hospital for Women & Newborns. Thirty-four years later, father and son share a practice together as pediatricians affiliated with Sharp Chula Vista Medical Center and Sharp Mary Birch.

Now addressed as Dr. Ahmad Bailony, he and his father share many of the same traits — including their love of children.

“I’ve always loved being around kids, but my interest in medicine began when my father would take my siblings and me to the hospital while he did his rounds,” says Dr. Ahmad Bailony. “Now working alongside my father, I’m able to grow as a physician and learn from his experiences. Being around kids all day makes my job that much more special. Plus it’s a bonus when my young patients refer to me as a superhero.”

“We complement each other,” the elder Dr. Bailony emphasizes, through a proud smile.

Pediatric care requires patience, creativity and a big heart, which the Bailonys work to exemplify each day. Along with visiting with patients, sometimes together, the physicians expand their knowledge of the ever-changing field of medicine by regularly attending CME lectures and the AAP National Conference, and reading medical journals monthly. However, the heart of their practice is found in visiting with and caring for children.

“When you get a hug from a child after you treat him or her, you can’t replace that,” explains Dr. Mohammed Bailony. “And I’m so proud to now be able to witness my son experience those memorable moments pediatricians are lucky enough to encounter.”

When they’re not being mistaken for Superman and Batman by their young patients — a joke they often share with their patients born out of a love for the comics — the Bailonys enjoy fishing, going to concerts and taking family trips together.
