Farrokh Shadab, MD

"I started pediatric and neonatology practice in Orange County in 1979 after finishing my pediatric training in Chicago at the Cook County Hospital, University of Illinois. I completed my fellowship in neonatology and pediatric intensive care at Rush Medical School and Children's Memorial Hospital Northwestern University. My pediatric practice is devoted to the advancement of excellence in preventative medicine, nutrition, and monitoring of growth and development with emphasis on cognition, comprehension, environmental interaction, socialization, language, school performance, attention problems and teenager behavior. Medical treatment of illnesses usually starts within the same day that we receive a call and in conjunction with other specialists if needed. Children are innocent people and deserve high quality care and attention for their illnesses."
