“Loyola physicians and staff have a wonderful sense of compassion, warmth and commitment to excellence and dedication in caring for all their patients. I too am dedicated to bringing resources to patients from all walks of life,” Boyd said. “I have always been drawn to caring for children, but with the recent trends affecting children’s health I feel all the more dedicated to providing families with the tools they need to help their child have a happy and healthy childhood."

Board-certified in pediatrics, Boyd is a general pediatrician with medical interests that include asthma, breast-feeding, eczema, newborn exam, obesity and pediatric nutrition.

“Being in the newborn nursery, I get to see the amazing blessing of a new life entering the world. What a joy to share with parents and other caregivers the responsibility of nurturing a child through such a vulnerable and happy time,” Boyd said.
