Dr. Gaitan graduated from UCLA School of Medicine in 1996 and completed
his residency at Harbor-UCLA in 1999. He subsequently moved to Northern
California where he kept a busy private practice. Additionally, he was
a neonatal and pediatric hospitalist and an assistant clinical professor
at UCSF. Warm weather and beautiful beaches pulled his family back to
Southern California in 2007.
Dr. Gaitan enjoys caring for children of all ages and truly believes that
it is a team effort with the whole family. He strives to achieve an excellent
foundation of physical and emotional growth in his patients by encouraging
parental involvement and considerate parental education.
In his spare time, Dr. Gaitan enjoys soaking up the sun with plenty of
outdoor activities with his wife, also a pediatrician, and two children.
