Lourdes Mosqueda, MD
I enjoy spending time with family, walking our 2 dogs, Yoda the Chihuahua and Chelsea the Boxer and continuously discovering all that South Pasadena and our surrounding communities have to offer.
I've come to value the strong relationships that develop between doctor and patient. However, over the years, doctor visits have transformed into rushed 10-minute appointments resulting in impersonal medical care. For this reason, I have opened Yuli MD Pediatrics. Why Yuli? This is my nickname given to me by my late mother. In her memory, I adopted this name for my practice. The focus of Yuli MD Pediatrics, an ideal medical practice, is solely on my patients, their families, and their needs.
I was born and raised in Anaheim, California. After graduating from high school, I went on to attend the University of California, Irvine. While there, I majored in biological sciences with a minor in Spanish. I then graduated with a medical degree from The University of Illinois, College of Medicine, which is where I met my husband, Rafael. After graduation, we moved to San Francisco, California where I completed my pediatric residency at California Pacific Medical Center.
After completing training and becoming a Pediatrician, I began providing care in community clinics, private practice, and in the hospital. As a pediatric hospitalist, I attended many deliveries, took care of newborns as well as patients in the emergency department.
Along with becoming a Pediatrician, my other greatest accomplishments include raising my family and moving to South Pasadena with my husband.
Rafael and I have 3 wonderful children, Daniel, Isabella, and Emilio. Our 2 oldest are now in college and our youngest keeps our weekends busy with soccer games.
