Hello! My name is Dr. Anna E. Lee, and I want to take this opportunity to introduce myself. I am a board certified pediatrician and I have been working in private practice settings for the past 17+ years. I spent 8 years in San Jose, CA, followed by 2 years in Rhode Island (due to my husband’s job) then back to Southern California to be closer to family and friends for the last 7 years. It was during my time in San Jose at RAMBLC Pediatric Medical Group that I met and worked side by side with Dr. Stein, for whom I have a great deal of respect. Having worked with Dr. Stein in the past, I am familiar with his style of practice and have always admired his integrity, sound medical expertise, his easy-going but professional bedside manner and humor. Although I am sad that I will not be working alongside Dr. Stein again, I am truly honored that he has entrusted me with the care of his patients.
I grew up in Southern California, and attended Occidental College in Los Angeles. After graduation, I attended Rosalind Franklin University/The Chicago Medical School, in North Chicago, Illinois for my Medical Degree. I then trained at UC Davis Medical Center in pediatric residency. Although I do enjoy all aspects of general pediatric medicine and development, I especially enjoy guiding patients and families as a team to healthy lifestyles and preventative care that would benefit them now and through adulthood. Although I practice evidence based medicine, I believe that having continuity of care in a solo practice allows me to get to know my patients well, leading to more individualized care which is the “art” of medicine.
Although I am sad to say good-bye to my current patients and their families in South Orange County, I am thrilled with this opportunity to serve Oceanside and North San Diego County, and I am excited to get to know and live in this community. Aside from my passion for pediatric medicine, I enjoy hiking, cooking and being a mom to our two boys age 9 and almost 11. My husband, our two boys and I are looking forward to happily exploring the beautiful beaches near by and many roads for our bicycling adventures ahead!
Thank you for your consideration.
