Welcome! My name is John Waldron. I am a family medicine physician at the Kaiser Permanente Pasadena Medical Offices. I look forward to working with you to care for your health.
I grew up locally in Glendale and moved back home to be near my family after I finished medical school. I now have a family of my own with three children. Even when I was a young child, I knew that I wanted to be a doctor, in part because of the compassionate care I saw my close friend receive in the last few years of his life. I knew that I wanted to be able to make a real difference in people's lives, and practicing medicine gives me that opportunity.
I feel that healthy living and preventive care are the best ways to stay healthy, but I am also here to help you when you are sick. I want to be your partner in health, and it helps me better care for you when you are actively involved in taking care of your health.
I firmly believe in Kaiser Permanente's philosophy of total health, which considers all aspects of a person's state of being - body, mind, and spirit. My family life is my major priority. I enjoy family outings to Dodger games and staying active with my son's Boy Scout troop and my children's soccer and basketball teams. My wife, two sons, daughter, and I enjoy frequent weekends at the coast, music in the park during the summer, as well as quiet family time at home.
