About Me

Welcome to my Web page. I am Dr. Laurence Ashbacher. I have been practicing pediatrics at Kaiser Permanente for more than 35 years. Practicing medicine here has been very rewarding and challenging. I attempt to care for each child as if they were my own grandchildren.


Originally, I am from the East Coast. I was born in Georgia and, as the son of an Army officer, have traveled to many places. I chose medicine as a career from an early age and have never lost sight of the goal to serve people as a doctor. I have been a pediatrician for more than 35 years and still enjoy the work and the challenge of medicine.

About my practice

I work with a great group of pediatricians and nurse practitioners to provide the best care possible to our young members. Our staff loves children and we strive to make each encounter enjoyable.

How I thrive

I enjoy the outdoors, especially the mountains and the desert. I backpack and hike as much as possible. I like to travel throughout America, as well as abroad. Meeting people from different countries and cultures has always intrigued me.
