About Ricardo Indacochea, MD

I decided to become a physician because someone once told me that doing what I love will make me happy. Time has proven this to be true, as nothing makes me happier than taking care of kids. My medical care philosophy centers around trust. All the great doctors I have had, learned from, and worked with in my life, all earned my trust with their knowledge, skills, and especially their compassion. Forming a trusting relationship that respects and involves all parties — patient, parents, caretakers and the physician is paramount to excellent medical care. I participate in the Sharp Rees-Stealy Medical Group Climate and Planetary Health Committee because I have an interest in addressing the impact of climate change on human health. When I am not at work, I love spending time with my family, reading books, cooking, outdoor activities and especially traveling. I also greatly enjoy watching sports.

Dr Indacochea is the best pediatrician my son ever had. He had a number of doctors who cared for him in England (where he was born to age 5) and here in CA, but Dr Indacochea is exceptional. He checks on his condition and follows up on his progress days after assessment and continues to provide care and really shows concern for his patient. He is absolutely wonderful!
