Page went into pediatrics because of a story she heard “over and over again.”
“When my parents immigrated to this country, I actually got very sick. They didn’t speak any English at all. But there was a pediatrician who took care of me, and even though they couldn’t communicate, he had a calming effect on them and really helped me get through that time.”
Page, 33, was born in Vietnam of Chinese descent. She grew up in Wichita, earning degrees from Newman University and the University of Kansas School of Medicine – Wichita.
After completing her residency in pediatrics at Wesley Medical Center, she moved to St. Louis with her husband, Seth, who’s a hematologist-oncologist at the Cancer Center of Kansas, so that he could complete a fellowship there.
Page worked at a clinic in St. Louis for three years, then as clinical director of pediatrics at GraceMed in Wichita for the last four years. She was recruited to Redbud by physician Rebecca Reddy, who had been one of her supervisors during residency.
“I really enjoy the younger age group, birth to school age, and elementary school,” she said. “That’s my joy.”
Page and her husband have two sons: Isaiah, 8, and Nathan, 4.
