    Personal Interests

    Dr. Padrez enjoys spending time outdoors with her husband and two children, exploring all the Bay Area has to offer. As a Stanford football season ticket holder, you can find her on the sidelines of most games (Go Card!), and she also enjoys cooking, sailing, running, and seeing live music.

    Philosophy of Care

    Patient- and Family-Centered Care means that I share information with you, encourage your collaboration, and honor your choices. This approach is fundamental not only to how I care for your child, but also to how I organize my practice. I first and foremost work with you to prevent illness, keeping your child healthy with a balance of good nutrition, exercise, and activities to stimulate imagination and intellect. I track developmental progress at each well visit to ensure that your child meets appropriate milestones. I aim to recognize and appreciate the cultural context in which your child lives, and understand the many different and valuable approaches to parenting. If illness or injury does strike, I work with you to comfort, diagnose, and treat your child with as few tests and medicines as possible, with an emphasis on evidence-based decisions and current pediatric research. It is a privilege to partner with you in the care of your child. It is a role that comes with great responsibility and one that I enjoy immensely.
