Dr. Caryn Cassidy
I never knew that I wanted to be a doctor growing up and had even started college as a business economics major. However, my love for science and desire to give back and help others lead me to a career in medicine. From there, it was natural for me to specialize in pediatrics. I love kids and the joy and resilience that they have. Their ability to see the good, even in tough times always continues to amaze and inspire me.
I grew up in Orange County and went to UCLA for my undergraduate education. After that, I moved across town and attended USC Keck School of Medicine (however I will always be a true Bruin at heart!). I then had the privilege of completing my pediatric residency at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles where I worked with many aspirational mentors and was fortunate to have been a part of the lives of so many wonderful patients and families. After residency, I was fortunate to become a part of the Tenth Street Pediatrics family. I continue to work at Children's Hospital Los Angeles one day a week in their general pediatrics clinic.
I currently live near Culver City with my husband, Zane, and our mini aussie puppy, Daisy. Zane and I met in Madrid, Spain while on the same study abroad program in college and fell deeply en amor. We got married between medical school and residency down in Orange County near the Mission San Juan Capistrano. We love going to the beach, practicing yoga, travelling to new places and tasting all types of food. I've been lucky to be able to combine my love of travel with my career in medicine and have served on two medical mission trips, first to Guatemala in 2019 and then to Honduras in 2020. Once it's safe to travel again, my dream trip is a medical mission in Southeast Asian followed by some time to travel and visit Laos, which is where my mom is from.
Dr. Cassidy is currently the vice president of the Los Angeles Pediatric Society and serves on the pediatrics committee at St. John's Hospital.
