Healthy Start Pediatrics was established by Dr. Ashima Madan, a double-board-certified pediatrician and newborn specialist with several years of experience at Packard Children’s Hospital at Stanford. Due to Dr. Madan experience to deal with complex cases and NICU graduates. Our goal is to deliver quality personalized care for newborns, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)graduates, and children through 18 years of age from all socioeconomic strata. Our philosophy ofcare grew out of the recognition that easy access and continuity of care provided by a caring, well-trained pediatrician in a small practice setting is the better healthcare delivery model for primary carefor children, whereas large multi-specialty organizations are better-suited for specialized acute andcritical care. We further believe that an investment in preventive care in children through (i) pre- andpost-natal health education, (ii) periodic developmental screens, and (iii) health examinations for earlydetection of disease, is critical for a healthy adulthood, as much of adult health has its antecedents infetal and early childhood phases. Healthy Start Pediatrics combines the caring and attention of the solo practitioner pediatrician with application of modern technology and recent advances in pediatric care. We provide out-patient care with emphasis on preventive care and education, as well as hospital care for newborns. Our goal is to provide individualized attention and continuity of care.
Verified Patient Reviews
We scheduled an appointment for my 8 year old, to have a rash checked. We get there and they check him in. They inform me he will be getting 2 shots. I informed them that he is fully up to date on all of his shots. The receptionist had to go and recheck. She says "Oh ya, he is fully up to date". So my son would be receiving shots that he wasn't supposed to if I did not speak up!! Then they give him a well check, (without asking me), and the doctor does not even address the rash. I had to be pushy to have it checked. After finally checking it, she shrugs and said she doesn't know what it is. My son was not comfortable with her and we were rushed! Terrible experience. This was his second visit with her and we will not be going back!

First visit. I wished she was a little bit more caring/excited with my son, but I liked her matter-of-fact approach. We will continue to work with her.
The doctor was very thorough and spent a lot of time answering our questions.
