Dr. Sky Pittson has made Palo Alto his home since his undergraduate days at Stanford University and then Stanford University School of Medicine. He stayed to complete his residency in Pediatrics at Packard Children’s Hospital at Stanford and went on to build a thriving private practice in Palo Alto before joining The Village Doctor in 2011.
Over the years, his academic affiliations with Stanford have allowed him to serve as Community Attending Physician, sit on various Packard medical staff committees, and teach Stanford residents and medical students. He has been honored with the Golden Apple Award for Teaching by the Department of Pediatrics.
Dr. Pittson has particular interest in newborn care, adolescent medicine, pediatric sleep medicine, disorders of attention and focus, and aerodigestive disorders (involving gastroesophageal reflux, ENT conditions, feeding issues and how they interrelate).
“Guiding families from the birth of their first child, getting to know each as individuals, building a trusted relationship as they grow, and then helping them navigate the transition through adolescence and the college years is a singularly rewarding privilege.”
