Hi! My name is Ken Akey, M.D. I am a Board Certified Pediatrician and Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics. I attended the University of California, Irvine, School of Medicine, and have been blessed to be in private practice for over 25 years. I love to practice a "one-on-one" Doctor/Patient relationship, not using para-medical health providers as I very much enjoy getting to know each child and his or her family! I believe in helping parents provide a "moral compass" for their precious children, especially during the often turbulent teen years. Close, loving ,family bonds, along with consistent discipline and respect for parents, may well set the stage for success and happiness down the path. My special interests are newborns, developmental pediatrics (behavior), and nutrition. My "take home" for the kids is "You are what you eat." When I am not at the office or at one of the hospitals, I enjoy church activities, working out, and am eager to spend time with my wife, Laurie, my four grown children, their spouses, and three PERFECT grandchildren. While there are many choices in pediatric care in Southern California, one thing that has become extremely unique in my office is you always get the same doctor, with total continuity of care. Â My primary concern is to provide quality care for the children of Southern California. Sincerely, Kenneth Akey M.D., F.A.A.P. P.S. All insurances accepted.
