44 years ago, La Mesa Pediatrics opened its doors and quickly became recognized as a pediatric office with a reputation for quality, comprehensive care.
When it came time for our pediatric patients to transition to an adult doctor, we noticed it was often difficult for our young adults to navigate the uncharted world of adult medicine. La Mesa Pediatrics wanted to find a way to ensure their patients didn’t get lost in the transition from pediatric to adult care.
The opening of our family practice, La Mesa Family Medical Group has created the much-needed transitional care for our teens and filled the need for more care options in the East County. Conveniently located across the hall from our pediatric office, La Mesa Family Medical Group provides several services in addition to general primary care for all ages.
Right from the start of the endeavor into adult care, it became apparent that the need extended across all ages and walks of life. Our services are continuously expanding and currently include women’s health, chronic disease care (including management of diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, COPD and other chronic lung diseases, weight management, and more), end of life care planning, full-spectrum LGBTQ care, and much more. Working together, Dr. Brown and Dr. Ancona-Young complement each other perfectly to bring their patients personalized, compassionate care for every family member.
