As Seen in Orange Coast Magazine – January 2012

Dr. Zacharia Reda
Caring for children takes a special commitment. Serving Orange County for more than 40 years, Newport Children’s Medical Group provides coverage from newborn and primary care to hospital and intensive care. Dr. Zacharia Reda, medical director: “We guarantee same day visits in one of our three locations.”
NCMG offers 7-days-a-week office hours. When it comes to your child’s health, there is no substitute for experience.
NCMG physicians, all board certified in pediatrics, have received additional training in pediatric pulmonary and critical care, emergencies, diabetes and growth disorder, weight control and sports medicine.
For more than 20 years Dr. Reda has served Los Angeles and Orange Counties in the fields of pediatrics, pulmonary and critical care. His extensive experience with critically ill children has helped him make early diagnoses and ensured better outcomes for his patients. A recent survey to more than 30,000 California doctors, named him as “one of the top doctors in his field to be trusted to treat their own children,” as seen in Los Angeles magazine for the past five years. He was voted by his peers in the Orange County Medical Association as one of the top doctors in his field, as seen in Orange Coast magazine for the past six years. Every year, Dr. Reda participates in multiple international meetings to ensure the best care for his patients. He served on the faculty of UC Irvine and UCLA, and as medical director of PICU at Fountain Valley Regional Hospital for 15 years. NCMG offers pulmonary function testing, BMR caloric measurement, and in-house lab testing, among others. Treadmill Vo2 testing helps evaluate endurance and exercise intolerance.
“We don’t only provide high-quality care, we most importantly care,” says Dr. Reda.
NCMG was voted best pediatric practice in Newport Beach, as seen on KCOP-TV Channel 13’s “Best of L.A.” TV show.
