Chico Pediatrics Providers

John Asarian MD, MPH, FAAP

John grew up in Fresno, received his B.S. from UC Santa Barbara, and his MD from UC San Francisco. He completed his Residency in Pediatrics at Stanford Medical Center in 1974. He served as an Assistant Faculty member in the Department of Pediatrics at Stanford prior to moving to Mendocino in 1975.

He established a practice in Fort Bragg and raised his three sons there. During 1989-90, he earned a Master’s Degree in Public Health at UC Berkeley. He then served as a member of the Pediatric Department at the Permanente Medical Group in Martinez, CA before moving to Chico in 1997 to work for Sutter North Medical Group. In 1999, he started a private practice which ultimately became Chico Pediatrics.

In December 2007 he married his high-energy wife, Lauree, who helps him tremendously in both his practice and at their home. She created the themes and decor in our new office on Rio Lindo Ave. In addition to loving his work, he enjoys reading, fly fishing and travel. His favorite destination so far is Kenya, where he and Lauree traveled in 2011. It was there that John developed his appreciation for the beautiful, gentle giraffes that inspire our logo.
Most recently they have to Greece, Croatia, and China.

Dr. Asarian (aka "Dr. John") is Board Certified by the American Board of Pediatrics, and is a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics. He is a member of the Butte County Medical Society and the California Medical Association.

In 2012 The Chico News and Review named him Best of Chico for Pediatricians.
