Faith in the System

Being frustrated to tears and scared beyond a parent's belief by not knowing what was affecting my child, my doctor referred us to Dr. Tipton. We were so pleased by his demeanor, bedside manner, and the way he comforted our child. He eagerly investigated the cause and symptoms for our child. This was a traumatic effect for any child and his kindness and calm as well as clear explanations gave us all an ease that I don't think most doctors have a gift of. Dr. Tipton is a blessing to the doctor world and if it weren't for him we don't know if we would have our child right now. He is a Godsend!

More about Dr. James R Tipton

I made the perfect decision when I joined Kaiser Permanente, leaving behind a full-time faculty position at UCLA. I I don't need to worry about running a business. I can focus on taking care of my patients, knowing that I can easily arrange for the tests, medicines or appointments that they need. As new features are rolled out on this Web page, I look forward to being able to provide links to health education materials, helping you get the best information to assist in caring for your children. Biography I am a third-generation native Californian. I grew up in the wonderfully multi-cultural community of San Pedro. I loved science classes, graduated at the top of my high school class, and entered UCLA as a biology major, proudly the first person in my extended family to have the opportunity to attend college. I thought of a career in medicine from early on, and my plans gelled when I worked two summers in the outpatient department at Childrens Hospital Los Angeles. I fell in love with the thought of a career caring for children. I am an associate clinical professor of pediatrics at UCLA, where I teach medical students and residents - the young physicians of tomorrow. About my practice If a child has a stomach, intestinal or liver problem, the child's personal physician refers him or her to me. My staff calls the child's family and arranges an initial consultation appointment in the office. I encourage parents and caregivers most familiar with the child to attend that initial visit where we together decide what further tests or treatment would be most beneficial. How I thrive Family vacations, regular exercise, good food, music, reading, and following UCLA sports complement the enjoyment my medical practice brings to me.
