A new doctor has joined the staff of Larchmont Pediatrics, at 321 N. Larchmont Blvd.
Born and raised in Chico, Dr. Alexandra McCollum—a graduate of UC Santa Barbara and St. George’s University School of Medicine—returned to California last August after completing her residency at Cohen Children’s Medical Center in New York.
McCollum lives in Crest View with her husband and two kids, Jordan and Jake, but says she’s excited to put down professional roots in Larchmont Village.
“When I moved to L.A., I had the chance to work in a couple of practices around town, but was attracted to Larchmont Pediatrics because of the opportunity it gives me to grow with a new practice.
“The community atmosphere of the neighborhood was a huge appeal.”
McCollum says she will be splitting her time between Larchmont and the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, where she is credentialed and works in the outpatient department a few days a week.
Pediatrician Dr. Neville Anderson—who grew up on Lorraine Blvd., and now lives in Hancock Park—opened the practice on the 10th floor of the Larchmont Medical Building last year.
