Growing up, Dr. Aaron lived across the street from his pediatrician. “He was a role model and helped me establish my rapport with children. By the time I was 15 years old, I knew I wanted to be a pediatrician – and it was because of him.”
“ Healthy kids have the time and energy to chase their dreams. Watching kids grow up and develop into their own people and personalities is one of the best parts of the job,” says Dr. Aaron. “I think one of the things that makes me an effective doctor is my emotional attachment to my families. But that also can make the job exhausting.”
According to Dr. Aaron, building trust with children and families is key to providing good care. “It takes time to establish trust, and I respect that. I try to treat all of my patients like family.”
As a parent, Dr. Aaron’s goal was to raise well-rounded kids . . . children who were both physically and academically active. “Mental and physical health are connected, I believe that physically and mentally challenging kids builds resilience.”
Dr. Aaron isn’t the only one who believes in his approach and capabilities – Ranking Arizona and Phoenix Magazine have both repeatedly named Dr. Aaron to their respective Best Doctors and Top Doctors lists. He’s also been identified as one of America’s Top Pediatricians.
Dr. Aaron is a licensed pediatrician, a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatrics and a Fellow in the American Academy of Pediatrics. He earned his undergraduate and medical degrees the University of Michigan – graduating cum laude in both. Dr. Aaron completed his medical residency at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
