About Stephen Carson, MD

I decided to become a pediatrician at the age of six after developing a tight bond with my own personal pediatrician. I trained in pediatrics and pediatric pulmonary medicine at Children's Hospital in Boston, and under the Department of Pediatrics at Harvard School of Medicine from 1976 to 1979. I was recruited by the Department of Pediatrics at University of California School of Medicine to be chief resident in 1979, and then was hired as a director of the University of California San Diego’s training program. My first love is caring for children of all ages so that they can reach their highest potential. In addition, I pride myself on balancing the divide between traditional and complementary medicine. In my spare time, I love to travel, play tennis and golf and spend time with my friends and my grandchildren.
