Dr. Hartford came to VCC: Durian Pediatrics after moving to California from the East Coast, where she is from. After years of working in a private practice in Chicago, Dr. Hartford and her family decided on North County San Diego to settle. When looking for a new place to practice medicine, she was determined to find something that allowed her to give back as much as possible; that’s when she found VCC and knew she could make a difference. Dr. Hartford is able to treat children’s needs from birth to adulthood and enjoys working closely with families to determine the best course of action for the health and wellbeing of the child and family. Dr. Hartford prides herself in being a doctor that listens and works as a support system for her patients.
How do you help your patients “Choose Health”?
I make sure to listen to each patient and try to find out what they need out of each visit. I try to help them make their own decions by giving them knowledge and confidence to take responsibility for their health.”
