Arshia Hashmy MD has been working as a Pediatrician for almost 30 years. Dr. Hashmy immigrated to the United States in 1972, where she completed her medical education with a Pediatric Residency at Michael Reese Hospital in Chicago, Illinois. Hashmy has two adult children and speaks Urdu as well as English. She has three grandchildren, one of whom wishes to be Pediatrician just like her grandmother. “It's amazing being able to connect with children of all generations, and my family is a big part of that,” she says. Dr. Hashmy works hard to produce a welcoming, caring environment when giving medical care to children. She says that there are a lot of simple ways to improve your child's health, including skipping soda and drinking water or low-fat milk. Dr. Hashmy thinks it's important to practice what she preaches and works very hard to cook healthy meals and exercise regularly. In her free time she loves hiking the hills around Laguna Niguel, but her favorite place to visit is Idyllwild, where she often camps with her family.
