Laura E. Saldivar, MD

Pediatrician

Bio:   I became a doctor because I found that it gave me the honor and privilege of combining my love for children and families, with my love of teaching, science and always learning more. The best part of my day is when one of my patients says something really cute or funny and we all have a great laugh together in the room. I also love to sing!

Dr. Laura Saldivar completed both her undergraduate and medical school training at Stanford University. She completed her internship and residency in Pediatrics at Stanford University School of Medicine and Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital. She is an accomplished and respected physician with 16 years of private practice experience. Dr. Saldivar is married and has two children.
