Welcome to Boulevard Pediatrics! 


Comprehensive, Personalized Care of Infants, Children & Adolescents

Welcome to Boulevard Pediatrics, a leading pediatric provider for infants, children and teens in Encino, California. Our warm, inviting office is designed to facilitate hands-on, creative play for our smallest patients, opportunities to read and explore for children, and a relaxing waiting area for teens and parents. We are committed to preserving the health of the children in our community. Our practice specializes in chronic and acute medical care, and we provide well care visits and vaccinations.

Our experienced physicians, Dr. Jena K. Liddy, Dr. Jeremy F. Shapiro, Dr. Katrin Lalezarzadeh and Dr. Nick Uhm, continually strive for consistency and continuity when it comes to the care of your child. Our desire is to be more available to you, giving you the time, as parents, to express and solve your concerns about your children. We are committed to the goal of forming a doctor-patient relationship that is positive, comfortable and memorable for you and your child.

Practice Philosophy

We believe that by promoting healthy emotional and physical development, as well as emphasizing the value of good nutrition, education and exercise, we can enable your child to build a strong foundation for his or her future. As part of our preventive philosophy, we also advocate the use of childhood vaccines, and will spend whatever time necessary to help you reach comfort with your decision to proceed with this important intervention. We believe in maintaining a caring, personalized environment for your child.

At Boulevard Pediatrics, we believe in the value of ongoing education for parents and caregivers. As a result, we take the time to enrich your knowledge about nutrition, mental health, education choices, and safety. In addition, we provide ongoing continuing education opportunities for our entire staff, so that they stay abreast of new developments in our field.

Thank you for your interest in our practice. We appreciate the trust you have placed in us.
