Santiago Pediatrics is located in Lake Forest (southern Orange County), California. We are committed to helping patients and families understand how to care for children with common childhood illnesses and prevent future health problems with emphasis on cultivating healthy lifestyles and nutrition, which can be best accomplished at a young age.

At Santiago Pediatrics, our pediatricians are dedicated to helping your child stay well and treat every family patient with warmth and compassion.
