Dr. Arshia Hashmy, M.D. has been working as a Pediatrician for almost 30 years. As a young woman she attended Osmania's Women's College & Osmania's Medical College in Hyderabad, India. She graduated M.B.B.S. in 1972. Dr. Hashmy immigrated to the United States in 1972, where she completed her medical education with a Pediatric Residency at Michael Reese Hospital in Chicago, Illinois. She moved to Los Angeles in 1982, and has been serving local families ever since.

Dr. Hashmy has two adult children and speaks Urdu as well as English. She has three grandchildren, one of whom wishes to be a pediatrician just like her grandmother. "I think being a mother really helped me as a pediatrician," says Dr. Hashmy, "and being a grandmother, even more so! It's amazing being able to connect with children of all generations, and my family is a big part of that."

Dr. Hashmy works hard to produce a welcoming, caring environment when giving medical care to children. She thinks it's important to get to know her patients and their families to help them feel safe and happy at the doctor's office. Dr. Hashmy recommends that children eat healthy and be fit. Everybody, children especially, need to exercise in order to be healthy both physically and mentally. She says that there are a lot of simple ways to improve your child's health, including skipping soda, and drinking water or low-fat milk.

Dr. Hashmy thinks it's important to practice what she preaches, and works very hard to cook healthy meals and exercise regularly. For exercise she loves hiking. Locally, she recommends the hills around Laguna Niguel, but her favorite place to visit is Idyllwild, where she often camps with her family.
