The Informed Parent

Pediatric Medical Center is open by appointment M–F 9-5:15 and Sat from 8:30am. Closed Sundays. 562-426-5551. View map.

Notice to our readers and families of PMC:
Contrary to what you might have heard, Dr. Samson is NOT retiring. He is only reducing his office time by 50%. He has no plans to leave the practice of pediatrics and will be there for you. After 59 years of being on call for nights and weekends, from medical school to the current time, he felt it was time to let the younger physicians of PMC fulfill that responsibility. He is looking forward to seeing you and your children in the future.

John H. Samson, M.D., F.A.A.P.
