Island HospitalNews

Brandon Greene MD, FAAP recently joined Fidalgo Medical Associates (FMA), where he provides compassionate and evidence-based pediatric care.

After earning his Bachelor degrees in Information Technology and Philosophy at the University of Texas at Austin (UT-A), he worked as a technology consultant for several years before turning his attention toward a career in medicine. Following premedical training at Bryn Mawr College, PA, he conducted clinical research at the University of Pennsylvania, obtained his Doctor of Medicine degree from Cornell University Medical School in 2012, and in 2015 completed his residency training at Comer Children’s Hospital, University of Chicago Hospitals, where he was employed as Clinical Associate, Department of Pediatrics until joining FMA.

Dr. Greene’s academic excellence was rewarded at UT-A with the Deadman Merit full tuition scholarship. He was a National Merit Finalist and was inducted into the Golden Key National Honor Society, Beta Gamma Sigma Honor Society and Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society. While at Cornell University, he received the New York City Mayor’s Office Health Literacy Fellowship and was winner of Best Poster Presentation, 2012 Annual Research Symposium.

“I see my place in the family/doctor relationship first and foremost as an advocate for the child and for the family,” he says. “Then, as a collaborator and mentor to the parents (and to the patient as they get older). Next as a teacher, and only after – and hopefully as a last resort – as a healer.

“My approach is grounded in careful and respectful listening – bringing the empathy and compassion to my practice that attracted me to medicine in the first place. My approach as a healer is evidence-based, and I believe that taking all the time needed to share with parents the ‘why’ and ‘how’ in addition to the ‘what’ is critical to ensure the best outcomes for their children.”

Dr. Greene is a Fellow of American Academy of Pediatrics (FAAP) and participates in the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) Council on Clinical Information Technology as well as the AAP Section on Telehealth Care.

Fidalgo Family Medicine is located at 1213 24th St., Suite 100, Anacortes. For appointments with Dr. Brandon Greene, call (360) 293-3101.
