“All 3 of my kids have had a great experience with the doctors here. They appear to up to date on current science and prescribe appropriately (e.g., don’t mechanically prescribe antibiotics for bronchitis, which has been shown in the last few decades to be primarily viral in kids). Also, they are superlatively punctual, in my experience.” -H. TV

West Tower Pediatrics
Dr. Edmond Sarraf, MD, better known as “Dr. Ed,” established the Southern California Integrative Wellness Center, which is one of the premier integrative health centers in Los Angeles. Dr. Sarraf is proud of his role in creating a grassroots change in health care, as he teaches his patients to increasingly depend on food, herbs, homeopathy, and mindfulness for their primary medicine.
After completing his residency at Akron Children’s Hospital, Dr. Sarraf started his career as a traditional doctor. He worked in busy practices, seeing 40 or more patients daily, while moonlighting in Urgent Care facilities and working in several hospitals.
Although he gained extensive experience in the full range of pediatrics, from seeing newborns to treating hospitalized patients with serious infections and disorders, Dr. Sarraf knew that simply prescribing medicine was not his only calling as a doctor. He completed additional training to become certified as a homeopath, finishing his courses at the Institute of Functional Medicine, and then he created the Southern California Integrative Wellness Center.

“My daughter has been seeing Dr. Sarraf since she was newborn – she’s currently 5.7 years old. We’ve been fortunate to never have her on antibiotics – We’ve only used tablets, and drops or other liquids that Dr. Saraaf has recommended and it’s always worked! Our daughter loves visiting Dr. Sarraf and he’s always helpful with additional tools to add to our parenting repertoire. His support staff/nurses are really great with shots, measurements, and appointment reminders 🙂 . We highly recommend them for your pediatric needs!” -Katrina Palandri Realtor
