Laura Lombardi joins our team as a patient coordinator

Great news! We’ve enhanced our staff and increased our practice bandwidth with the hire of a new patient coordinator, Laura Lombardi. Laura comes to us with 12+ years of medical office experience, bringing kind, personable, excellent patient care and service to our practice.

Laura most recently worked right next door at Interactive Wellness as an office manager and assistant to one of the physicians. Besides raising her own three daughters, she has also spent time working as a Pre-School Substitute Teacher in Menlo Park and as a Kindergarten Aide in the Palo Alto School District.

She has a business degree from San Francisco State; studied Language and Art at the Sorbonne University in Paris and is currently working on obtaining her Medical Assistant certification in California.

Fun fact: All three of Laura’s daughters had Dr. Cisco as their pediatrician while he was at Menlo Medical Clinic! Her youngest attends Palo Alto High School and her two older daughters are students at Sacramento State and the University of San Francisco.

Laura and her sweet dog, Chloe, are so happy to be here greeting our wonderful families each day and taking your calls.

We’d also like to remind you that Dr. Shelly Miller is currently taking on new patients and welcomes your referrals.

We are thrilled to welcome Dr. Shelly Miller

We are thrilled to welcome Shelly Miller, MD, MPH, to Burgess Pediatrics as our new partner. She has a wealth of pediatric knowledge and experience, and a wonderful sense of humor. We are sure you are going to love her as much as we do. Most importantly, she loves working with children and their families.

Dr. Shelly started out as an anthropologist and worked in archeology for a few years and then moved into public health. After completing her master’s in public health at UCLA, focusing on international health, maternal and child health, she attended medical school in Colorado. She spent her senior year working in Zimbabwe and Malawi before returning for residency at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital in Oakland. Following that adventure, she completed a fellowship in pediatric infectious disease. Dr. Shelly says, “There is always more to learn!”

After working over a decade in a private clinic in San Francisco and Marin, practicing both primary care pediatrics and infectious disease consulting, Dr. Shelly moved to the East Bay and has been working in pediatrics with Stanford Children’s Health.

Dr. Shelly is very excited to join Burgess Pediatrics and cannot wait to get to know all of you. Stop by and say hello when next you visit and feel free to give her tips about her new home in Menlo Park!
