Gayathri Selvakkumaran, MD, FAAP, known affectionately by her patients as Dr. Gaya, is a pediatrician at the Kids & Teens Medical Group locations in Arcadia and Pasadena, California.
Dr. Gaya completed her medical education/training at the University of Zambia, where she treated many infectious diseases, some of which are no longer prevalent in developed nations. She then moved to the United Kingdom for her neonatal fellowship training but moved to California in the middle of it.
She completed her pediatric residency at Adventist Health White Memorial Hospital in Los Angeles and since then has been an esteemed pediatrician working in the San Gabriel Valley area. With her vast international experience in pediatrics, she provides excellent pediatric care to her patients at the Kids & Teens Medical Group offices in Pasadena and Arcadia, in addition to seeing newborns at the Methodist Hospital of Southern California.
Dr. Gaya chose a career in pediatrics in hopes of treating the happiest beings on earth; however, she is heartbroken to see that many children are overwhelmed with stress and anxiety during these difficult, modern times. Consequently, she has developed a passion for supporting children who are struggling with these issues, and she spends much of her time in the office counseling these children.
In her free time, she enjoys classical dancing, cooking, and, best of all, spending time with her children; her maternal instincts make her a lovable and coveted pediatrician.
