About Me

Hello. My name is Dr. Julia Phillipson. I am a pathologist at Kaiser Permanente San Diego, located at the main office on Zion Avenue.


I’m a Southern California native who was born in Los Angeles and grew up in Santa Barbara. I attended medical school in San Diego and did my residency at UC San Diego. I completed a fellowship in surgical pathology at UCLA. I have a number of physicians in my family and was drawn to pathology as a career.

About my practice

I’m part of a large group of pathologists who work closely together to provide excellent diagnostic service. I have a special interest in gastrointestinal and genitourinary pathology.

How I thrive

I find my balance by working out and staying fit. I’m an avid golfer, swimmer, tennis player, and skier who loves any outdoor activity.
