Dr. Gunay's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Gunay "After my east coast education, I completed my pediatric training at Northwestern University in 1989. As a Hospital Pediatrician at CHOC for 6 years I became familiar with many serious pediatric conditions, but I have felt more reward from my private pediatric practice in affiliation with Hoag Hospital, CHOC and Miller Children's Hospital. I have interests in behavior, development, ADHD, and craniofacial conditions. I am involved in leadership at Hoag Hospital, GNP, and the American Academy of Pediatrics."
