Sharing a Child’s First Steps – Shirley Leong, M.D.
Posted on Jun 21, 2012 | 0 comments
Shirley Leong, M.D., loves the opportunity to be part of the lives of the families she cares for as a pediatrician at PAMF’s Fremont Center.
“I get to share children’s life experiences such as their first steps and the first day at kindergarten,” says Dr. Leong. “It’s most rewarding and an honor to help keep kids healthy, make sure they are growing and developing well and to see them turn into their very own people.”
Working and spending time with children has always been an integral component of Dr. Leong’s life.
“Growing up I did a lot of work with kids,” says Dr. Leong. “After seven summers of helping out at day camp and doing other children’s ministry work, I knew I wanted to work with kids.”
Beyond caring for her patients at PAMF, she travels to China in her free time to volunteer at a foster home for orphans, providing medical care and health education.
