Having grown up with a father who was a physician, Eric Morley, MD, MPH, chose to follow in his footsteps. He knew that by choosing a career in medicine he would be able to have a positive and lasting impact on the lives of others. And like his father before him, he too was drawn to pediatrics, knowing it would give him the best opportunity to shape lives from an early age and help prevent problems before they occur. Understanding that his young patients may feel some anxiety, Dr. Morley tries to keep office visits fun, integrating humor whenever possible so that they will feel comfortable and secure.
“I want to be a great supporter of and advocate for patients and their families, and to keep them emotionally and physically healthy so that they can be successful and achieve their life goals.”
After completing an undergraduate degree in psychology, Dr. Morley worked as an emergency medical technician before going to UCLA to earn a Master of Public Health degree. Following his MPH, he entered UC Davis School of Medicine and completed his medical degree in 2014. Passionate about volunteering in underserved areas, he has been part of multiple international service trips, one of which was in India helping to treat those afflicted with leprosy. Dr. Morley also participates in research projects aimed to advance children's medical care.
When not in the office, Dr. Morley enjoys ocean sports, most notably sailing and scuba diving. He also spends time working on improving his Spanish.
