Kira Olugebefola, MD

Pediatrics

Kira is a child-loving west coast transplant.  Although born in Pennsylvania, she spent her formative years in the desert of Washington State.  After undergraduate years at MIT in Boston, she stayed in Massachusetts to attend Harvard Medical School.  Missing the west coast she returned to Seattle for residency and a dose of rain.  She then served for four years as a National Health Service Corps Scholar in an underserved area of Illinois, with a focus on prevention of childhood obesity.

 

In 2010 she and her husband moved back to the east coast to be close to family and to finally settle down in New York.  She chose CareMount Medical in Carmel/Brewster as the place to grow roots in primary pediatric practice.  She loves learning the stories of her families and is honored to be able to help her patients grow and learn.   She also loves teaching and will often have a medical student from New York Medical College alongside her.  She is an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at both New York Medical College and Mount Sinai Medical School.

Her main interests include general well child care and injury prevention. She continues to work to encourage healthy nutrition.  She loves farmer’s markets, apple orchards, cooking and baking.  Sharing this love with kids is a favorite addition to the work of a pediatrician!  She loves working with kids and families of all ages, from first time parents with their newborns to college aged “kidults”.  Her free time is devoted to her kids and husband.  They love board games, music, and dance parties.  She loves volunteering in the garden at her kids’ school and reading aloud to any kid who might want to listen.

She finds working with children a marvelous profession!
