A New Pediatrician Joins Coastal Kids


Coastal Kids Pediatric Medical Group has provided my children with the best medical care possible since they were born. Over the years, I have seen many doctors in the practice, and all of the doctors at Coastal Kids are loving, caring, and have always made my children’s health a #1 priority. This week, they announced that new doctor has joined the practice, and comes highly recommended to be your children’s new pediatrician.

The new doctor to join the practice is Kristina Nylander, M.D., FAAP. She is a Board Certified Pediatrician and a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics. Dr. Nylander grew up locally in Laguna Hills and has been in private pediatric practice in South Orange County since 2004.

She graduated cum laude from Loyola Marymount University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. After moving to Portland Oregon and working in medical research, she attended Oregon Health & Science University School of Medicine. Dr. Nylander then returned to Southern California for her residency in pediatrics at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where upon completion, she was the recipient of the Pediatric Primary Care Award and the Golden Apple Teaching Award. Also, she is a UCLA Certified Lactation Educator.

Special interests of Dr. Nylander’s include early child development and breastfeeding support. As a pediatrician, Dr. Nylander most enjoys building lasting relationships with her patients and their families. Dr. Nylander lives with her husband and two daughters in Laguna Niguel and enjoys traveling and spending time outdoors with her family.

Dr. Nylander will be available on Mondays mornings in their Laguna Niguel office and all day Tuesday and Thursdays in their Laguna Hills office.

If you are having a new baby or looking for a new pediatrician for your children, Dr. Nylander is currently taking new patients. Coastal Kids had locations in Ladera Ranch, Laguna Hills, Irvine, Laguna Niguel and Newport Beach. Learn more about Coastal Kids online.
