Alexandra Piñon MDPediatrics
Dr. Alexandra Pinon draws from a wealth of experiences both in her professional and personal life. She moved many times as a child, and ultimately graduated from Smith College with a BA in biology. She went to the Miller School of Medicine in Miami, Florida, on the Health Professions Scholarship Program for the United States Navy and completed her pediatrics residency at the Naval Medical Center San Diego. She served active duty in the Navy for seven years and is now a civilian working as an outpatient pediatrician in Temecula, California.
In the course of her training and career, Dr. Pinon has had the opportunity to work in the Women’s Health Program at the Hospital Albert Schweitzer in Haiti; implement and participate in medical missions work in Nicaragua; and contribute to research for PEPFAR (President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief) in Zambia. She practiced medicine and was Chair to the Committee on Quality of Care at the Naval Hospital in Guam. She served as an assistant professor of pediatrics while at the Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton.
Dr. Pinon strives to provide a well-rounded approach to her patients’ care. She believes that creating a strong and trusting doctor-family relationship results in an enriching experience for both parties and ultimately leads to the best care outcomes for her patients. She works to support her community outside the traditional health care role having started a local chapter of the Reach Out and Read program at her office and volunteering as a Girl Scout Leader.
Dr. Pinon is a proud Navy wife and mother to her four children who are her greatest blessings. She is also a co-author in “The Chronicles of Women in White Coats”.
