Dr. Alex Taylor and his wife recently moved to Evanston from Southern California, where Dr. Taylor completed his residency in pediatrics at the Children’s Hospital of Orange County. He is originally from Hawaii, where he attended the University of Hawaii medical school.
Dr. Taylor is passionate about helping healthy children become healthy adults. He likes that the focus in medicine in recent years has been more on preventative care.In medical school, Dr. Taylor worked in a clinic that provided services to children in a homeless shelter. There he saw more than ever how resilient children can be, continuing to play in any situation. After working with some of the same families over a few years, he says the most rewarding part of his job is to help get a chronic illness – like asthma or obesity – under control for a child. When he is not busy working, Dr. Taylor enjoys baking and even making ice cream.
