Neville Anderson’s lifelong dream—to open a pediatric practice on Larchmont Blvd.—will be realized when Larchmont Pediatrics opens on Wed., April 2.
Anderson, 38, grew up on Lorraine Blvd.; her great- grandmother also grew up in Windsor Square as did her mother and maternal grandparents. As a child, she attended St. James’ Episcopal School. “I supposedly wrote in my fifth grade yearbook that I wanted to be a pediatrician,” laughs Anderson, who resides in Hancock Park.
As a student at Marlborough, she volunteered at Children’s Hospital in the Child Life Department. “I knew for sure after that experience that I wanted to be a pediatrician,” she said.
A graduate of Stanford University and the University of Rochester, Dr. Anderson came full circle when she served her internship and residency at Children’s Hospital.
Named a Top Doctor in Pasadena Magazine in 2008, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 while practicing at Descanso Pediatrics in La Canada-Flintridge, she was also named a Top Rising Super Doctor in Los Angeles Magazine in 2013.
A staff member at Cedars- Sinai, she is currently scheduling visits for patients newborn to 21 years old in her office on the 10th floor of the Larchmont Medical Building Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Potential new patients can meet with her at no cost prior to their first visit.
“I envision being like a small town/neighborhood doctor’s office,” she said. “I love my job because I get to know parents and children over time and be an important part of their lives.”
