Jeffery P. Bourne, M.D. practiced pediatrics in Southern Florida for ten years before moving to California in 2004. He has been serving the Santa Monica community and its children since then. As a child, it was a family pediatrician that first inspired Dr. Bourne to consider a future in medicine. While treating an older sibling for a serious childhood condition, the role the pediatrician played in his family left a lasting impression on Dr. Bourne as he got older.
During his years in school he discovered that he liked and was good at science. He also realized that he really enjoyed working with kids. Becoming a pediatrician was a natural merging of these two interests. He went to medical School at the University of Washington and then did both his internship and residency at the Kapiolani Medical Center for Women & Children in Honolulu, Hawaii. Today he serves on pediatric committees for Providence Saint John’s Health Center and UCLA Santa Monica. He was Chairman of Pediatrics for five years at Providence Saint John’s Health Center.
In the practice of pediatric medicine, he really enjoys making a correct diagnosis, beginning treatment, and seeing the patients improve. He also finds it rewarding just talking to the kids and watching them grow.
Outside the office, he loves taking his children to the beach and hopes to teach them paddle boarding and kitesurfing. Outdoor adventures like rappelling waterfalls are a favorite activity. As a member of the Magic Castle, he is an accomplished magician and hopes to return to this hobby as time permits.
