Welcome to my Web page. My name is Dr. Bigwood. I am an urgent care and emergency room pediatrician for Kaiser Permanente here in the Antelope Valley. I derive a great deal of satisfaction from helping my members and their parents through stressful experiences by listening, offering sound advice, and practicing good medicine.
I attended medical school in the U.K. and went on to serve my internship and residency in pediatrics at Schneider Children’s Hospital in New Hyde Park, New York. Practicing with Kaiser Permanente since 2009, I have found it to be a great organization, which believes strongly, as I do, in evidence-based medicine. With access to outcomes from thousands of diagnoses and treatments, we have been able to develop sound treatment guidelines that are most likely to generate good results.
As an urgent care physician, members and their families look to me to provide a quick and accurate assessment of their condition and recommend appropriate treatment. I do my best to listen, assess the needs of the member, and apply my knowledge and experience to the best of my abilities.
I make a point of keeping abreast of new findings in the rapidly evolving field of medicine and employing techniques which will most likely deliver the best possible outcome. To better serve my members’ needs, I am also learning Spanish.
