Denise O’Riordan, MD
At Blackhawk Medical Group since 2012
I love kids. All of my professional training has been in pediatrics—at the Oakland Children’s Hospital and then as an urgent care pediatrician in San Mateo before joining Blackhawk.
I chose pediatrics as my specialty because I enjoy not only working directly with children but also their families. I encourage parents to ask lots of questions. We get to know each other well and develop a real relationship. Because of my specialty, I have the great privilege of playing an important part in the health and development of the next generation—from newborns up to young adults.
When I am not working I enjoy spending time with my husband and my own children!
