About

Bio

I have been practicing Pediatrics for 20 years. A big part of my practice focus has been Pediatric Hospital Medicine—caring for children sick enough to require care in a hospital. I have also practiced Primary Care pediatrics, striving to make sure I understand parents’ and patients’ concerns before collaborating with the family to work out a plan for diagnosis or treatment. I see my role in the care of your child as a “guide in the jungle”—that is, I don’t claim to have all the answers to all the questions, but I do have the knowledge and experience to help find the path through your care that’s right for you. I earned my BA from Stanford, my MD from UC San Diego, and completed my Pediatric residency at Kaiser Hospital in Oakland, CA. I earned my MBA degree from UC Irvine.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

A 25-year-old female asked:

Seek care if pain: Toddlers can pack a wallop! If you still have pain, or increasing pain, or new symptoms such as nausea, dizziness, it is best to be evaluated by a physician. However, toddler kicks rarely cause internal bleeding. If you feel well now, and stay that way, please don't worry. If you don't feel well, or are getting worse, see a doctor right away.

Constipation?: That sounds miserable for both of you! Constipation is exceedingly common in this age group, and it may be difficult to determine how severe it is. It can cause these symptoms--but there are other causes. Best to have your Pediatrician examine the child in-person, and see if testing or treatment are needed. If your child drinks more than 16 oz milk per 24-hours, that's a good place to start.

Switch when ready: If you don't have symptoms of infection (discharge, pain, fever, etc.), then it's unlikely that the tampons you used have lead to an infection at this point. Many women use scented tampons regularly without problems. Some develop an allergy-like sensitivity, which can cause inflammation and other problems. In general, the fewer chemicals introduced into the body the better! Switch when ready.

Being Caring, knowledgeable and having good judgement are perhaps the most important traits you would want in a physician. Additionally, Dr. Gill seems to take time to educate and inform his patients
