Areas of Professional Interest

I truly love the practice of helping young people stay well, heal and live their fullest lives. Approaching each child both as a unique, whole individual and as an integral part of their family and community systems, I follow a model of care that encompasses their physical as well as mental, emotional and environmental wellbeing. When medical challenges occur I work with families to explore the full spectrum of healing tools, with an emphasis on addressing root causes of disease over simply eliminating symptoms.

Meet the Provider

Hello, I’m Dr. Buxbaum

I’ve been a pediatrician for over 20 years and truly love the practice of helping young people stay well, heal and live their fullest lives. I work a lot with families to ensure that children and adolescents are getting enough good quality sleep, eating healthy, whole-food diets, and getting plenty of exercise and time outdoors. We work a lot on creating a good sleep environment and developing a healthy relationship with electronics. I have a special interest in the effect of developmental trauma on children’s health and well-being. I’m also very interested in the impact of diet, sleep and social connectivity on pediatric health and development. I chose Island Health because I was excited about the tremendous improvements that have been done to the Orcas clinic and am looking forward to providing a medical home to our island residents. After 10 years living in Northern California, my partner Valerie and I are excited to be back on the island.
