"Dr. Sky Pittson has made Palo Alto his home since his undergraduate days at Stanford University and then Stanford University School of Medicine. He stayed to complete his residency in Pediatrics at Packard Children’s Hospital at Stanford and went on to build a thriving private practice in Palo Alto before joining The Village Doctor in 2011. Over the years, his academic affiliations with Stanford have allowed him to serve as Community Attending Physician, sit on various Packard medical staff committees, and teach Stanford residents and medical students. He has been honored with the Golden Apple Award for Teaching by the Department of Pediatrics. Dr. Pittson has particular interest in newborn care, adolescent medicine, pediatric sleep medicine, disorders of attention and focus, and aerodigestive disorders (involving gastroesophageal reflux, ENT conditions, feeding issues and how they interrelate). “Guiding families from the birth of their first child, getting to know each as individuals, building a trusted relationship as they grow, and then helping them navigate the transition through adolescence and the college years is a singularly rewarding privilege.”"
"Imagine having 2,500 clients. How would you find the time to take care of them all? You can’t really. But that’s what the average physician has to deal with today– 2,500 patients to look after. It can mean weeks of waiting for a 10-minute visit. That’s stopwatch medicine. Now imagine reducing that number to 250 patients. 90% fewer patients. It’s more than just healthcare since there’s time to actually care for their health. That’s Concierge Medicine. For the past 15 years, The Village Doctor has taken it even further. We treat everyone from infants to elders, so your entire family gets the care they need. And, since we often treat everyone from grandparents to grandchildren, your internist and pediatrician are able to share information that can affect the health and wellbeing of your entire family. Better health for those you love. It’s all related. Literally. Visits are as short or as long as you like and the time and place is up to you and your doctor. We do not have a stopwatch. Just the opposite, we have the time to stop. And watch. And listen. We also believe that achieving wellness is just as important as eliminating illness. That’s why we work closely with our Wellness Studio providers to achieve that end. Feeling better, feeling good, both physically and emotionally, are all very real, very human needs. When everyone has the time to listen, wellness happens. So, fewer patients and more time. Families as well as individuals. And the belief that wellness really matters. That’s The Village Doctor. I look forward to talking with you soon."
