Alyssa Huang, MD
On staff since September 2019
"As a pediatric endocrinologist, I have dedicated my life to advocating for well-being of all children and adolescents. It is truly an honor to be a part of a child's care and help them develop and grow. I am grateful to all the wonderful patients and families for whom I have had the opportunity to be a part of their medical care. They have helped me grow as a physician and a human being. It truly takes a village to care for any child and I look forward to being a part of your medical team! "
Dr. Alyssa Huang completed her undergraduate training at Northwestern University with a double major in neuroscience and psychology. She went on to complete her medical degree at The Ohio State University College of Medicine. Her passion to improve the lives of children led her to complete her Pediatric Residency at Los Angeles County – University of Southern California Medical Center. During this time, she was inspired by children with diabetes and various endocrine disorders to pursue a career in Pediatric Endocrinology. She completed her endocrinology fellowship at the University of California San Francisco. Now she dedicates her time to patients at Seattle Children’s Hospital.
