Pristine golden beaches and sophisticated master-planned communities make Orange County, California one of the most sought after locales for growing families. Coastal Kids, a premier pediatrics group with five convenient locations—in Newport Beach, Laguna Niguel, Ladera Ranch, Irvine, Laguna Hills, and Los Angeles —offers the best quality healthcare to Southern California families with its team of highly trained physicians offering wide-ranging services.

In 2001, Dr. Abelowitz came up with the concept for Coastal Kids after he and his wife, Sima, had children of their own. “I wanted to create a pediatrics practice to serve families who were frustrated with the lack of availability and personal attention by their doctors,” Dr. Abelowitz said. “Our team of pediatric health care professionals are highly trained and dedicated to providing their patients with the best possible care.”

Since its founding, Coastal Kids has earned national acclaim for its comprehensive approach to pediatric health and medicine. Under the direction of Medical Director Steven Abelowitz, M.D., FAAP, Coastal Kids employs a highly skilled team of physicians trained in primary healthcare, preventative care, asthma and allergies, nutrition, breastfeeding support, growth and development, attention deficit disorder, adolescent health, adolescent gynecology, as well as athletics.


When isn’t Coastal Kids open? Coastal Kids is open seven days a week and caters to stay-at-home parents to working professionals with families. Our staff is available 24 hours a day and extended office hours and weekend visits are available to patients who need immediate medical attention. To ease parents’ nerves, and operate as safely as possible, Coastal Kids also offers staggered appointments, telehealth and drive-up services.


Coastal Kids offers peace of mind to OC families with the highest expectations in pediatric care. Each of the medical group’s physicians is Board Certified in Pediatrics, highly skilled and an expert in their field. “We believe in hiring only the most educated and experienced doctors, but also doctors that are attentive, compassionate and nurturing,” said Dr. Abelowitz, multiple times nominated as Top Doctor of Orange County by Orange County Medical Association and his peers for 2006, 2007, 2009, 2010, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2021. Most of the doctors have young growing families themselves and can relate easily to the patient population.


Our Mission is to provide children with experienced and excellent care in a gentle and compassionate environment from birth through adolescence and beyond, preparing them for a healthy adulthood. We strive to achieve the highest level of customer satisfaction through listening and responding to our patients’ needs and suggestions.

We believe in a world where every parent can rest assured that their children’s medical care is of the highest quality and service. We envision a world where children develop a profound trust of their doctor, to guide them gently on the journey towards adulthood.
