Great doctor

My wait time may have been a bit long but only because I knew she was spending as much time as she could with the patient before me. She is a wonderful, knowledgeable and caring pediatrician.

More about Dr. Lori B Taylor

Lori Taylor grew up in Pennsylvania and Northern California, and completed her undergraduate education at USC (go Trojans!). She moved to San Diego to attend medical school at UCSD, and at once fell in love with both the Southern California climate and her husband Ken, a fellow medical student. She remained in San Diego to complete her pediatric residency, and has practiced pediatrics in the area ever since. Lori was a faculty member at UCSD for nearly 10 years, during which time she pursued research interests in multi-cultural medicine and early childhood education. She then spent several years providing pediatric care to families in North San Diego County, working with a large pediatric group. San Diego Magazine recognized Lori as a %u201CTop Doctor%u201D in 2003, 2004, 2005 and 2010. In 2010, Lori moved with her family to New Zealand where her husband worked as a physician. After having quite an adventure, the Taylor family returned to San Diego in 2011 ready for change. For Lori, this meant creating the type of pediatric practice that would allow her to take the time to really get to know each child and family. Now, with Coast Pediatrics Del Mar, she is thrilled to once again partner with parents to support a healthy and active lifestyle for babies, children and teens. Lori lives in Solana Beach with her husband Ken, who is Director of the Sports Medicine program at UCSD, her two sons Griffin and Gavin, and their black labrador retriever. In her free time she enjoys attending her boys%u2019 myriad sporting events, reading, yoga, traveling and trying not to fall off of her stand-up paddleboard.
