Stanford Medicine Children’s Health Opens New Pediatric Group in Los Gatos

Stanford Medicine Children's Health - Pediatrics physicians

Stanford Medicine Children’s Health welcomes a new practice in Los Gatos to its health care network this month. The five pediatricians include: Andrew Lan, MD, MPH; Jeffrey Min, MD; Kimberly Pitts-Davis, MD; Rebekah Schneider, MD; and Pamela Silverman, MD.

As part of Stanford Medicine Children’s Health, the physicians and practice will continue providing the same excellent care they have offered for many years, with the additional benefits of joining a world-class health care system.

“It’s been a wonderful experience since starting my career as a pediatrician 33 years ago, I see something exciting on the horizon,” Dr. Pitts-Davis said. “I feel I’ll be able to focus on the medical care of my patients without being distracted by the details of having to run a small business. I look forward to maintaining a close relationship with my patient families, while being supported by the administrative staff at Stanford.”

All five physicians have deep roots in the community and strive to deliver a truly personalized experience for every family.

“We are all very caring and compassionate individuals who want the best for our patients—that’s what drew me to this group,” Dr. Schneider said. “We all have a strong local attachment, and we all operate on the same wavelength—like how we practice medicine that is individualized for each family.”

According to Andrew Smith, MD, medical director, Packard Children’s Health Alliance, “Our team has been familiar with the physicians for many years; they are all outstanding pediatricians and will be great assets to our network of care. They each represent our network commitments to quality and service, and we are thrilled to welcome them into our group of primary care practices in the South Bay.”

Dr. Silverman expects that the partnership will benefit families because it will allow them to keep providing the same level of personal attention, with the advantage of increased access to the latest medical technology.

“We’re a warm, welcoming group. There’s a lot we already offer, and the support that Stanford can provide is going to be a big game changer for our families,” Dr. Silverman said. “I think they’re going to really look forward to being able to access their charts online and get the information they need.”

Two of the physicians are Stanford alumni. For Dr. Lan and Dr. Min, joining the network feels like coming home.

“Having spent three years working inside of Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford, I have always had the utmost respect for the Stanford institution, the children’s hospital itself, and all the doctors and specialists working there,” Dr. Min said. “I’m looking forward to combining the personalized care I have provided for the last 20 years with Stanford’s nationally leading pediatric medical care and technology. It is exciting to be able to bring this to our community to promote better health for our patients.”

Dr. Lan anticipates having more time to connect with patients, as the new administration lifts the burden of running a business off the physicians. “The thing I’m most looking forward to is just being a doctor,” Dr. Lan said.

“In private practice, I’m a small business owner. I have to order janitorial supplies, serve as the human resources department, work with our tax accountant—basically take care of all the necessary support tasks required for running a successful practice,” Dr. Lan said. “But now I’m happy to just focus on doing the thing I enjoy most—that is, spending more time taking care of patients.”

The five doctors and their team are eager to share the exciting advancements that this collaboration with Stanford Medicine Children’s Health brings.
