They have been recognized as Top Doctors in the 2019 September issue of Pasadena Magazine. These four physicians have shown their clinical expertise and dedication to providing outstanding care to our patients in the San Gabriel Valley. Our physicians are fulfilling the mission of Shriners Hospitals for Children by developing and highlighting their skills. The continued research and education will help to improve health outcomes for children in need of our pediatric subspecialty services in the areas of orthopaedics, plastics, burn reconstructive surgery, rehabilitation, and orthotics and prosthetic services.

Pasadena Magazine surveyed doctors from across the San Gabriel Valley and Los Angeles to identify the most esteemed physicians in their respective fields. Results of the annual peer-to-peer survey are published in the September 2019 print edition and online.

“The commitment to personalized patient care and family experience is part of our culture and shared by all of our staff. Our innovative approach to pediatric pain management allows us to treat many conditions with minimal to no opiate use and has become the model that many pediatric centers follow. Our state-of-the-art clinic, physical therapy and operating rooms allow us to care for children in a world-class environment. We welcome all children with neuromuscular conditions, scoliosis and spine problems, sports injuries, fractures, congenital hand disorders, cleft lip and palate, burns and urologic disorders,” said Robert H. Cho, M.D., chief of staff at Shriners for Children Medical Center.

“It takes a whole team of people to make these miracles happen every day, and we are proud to see several physicians receiving accolades from their peers,” said Christopher Dougherty, administrator at Shriners for Children Medical Center.
