Personal Statement - As a pediatrician, I believe that in addition to helping children recover from acute illnesses, I should help guide the parents and children on how to stay healthy. I also attempt to help parents maintain an environment that is optimal for a child’s development and health. Being a parent myself, I would like my children’s doctor to be caring, sensitive and practical.

Neil Duncanson, MD

Education – Graduate, Northwestern University School of Medicine, Chicago, IL

Professional Association – American Board of Pediatrics; Clinical Professor, Pediatrics, University of Washington, Seattle, WA

Certification – Board Certified in Pediatrics

Residency – University of Washington, Seattle, WA

Hospital Affiliations - Highline Medical Center, Seattle Children’s Hospital, Harborview Medical Center; Emeritus: Valley Medical Center, Swedish Medical Center

Personal Statement – My goal is to offer my young patients and their parents quality, state-of-the-art medicine tempered with experience, friendliness and the desire to help them feel safe and comfortable. I recognize the children I see as unique individuals with important ideas and concerns of their own. As soon as they are old enough, I spend much of my time talking with them. Children should never be underestimated – discussing any fears, concerns and thoughts are an important part of each visit. Parents also have many questions regarding their child’s health. I try to provide them with as much information and reassurance as I can to alleviate any anxieties they might be experiencing.
