Barton Health welcomes new community pediatrician

Michael Doyle, M.D., F.A.A.P.

SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. — Barton Health recently announced Dr. Michael Doyle, F.A.A.P., is practicing at Barton Pediatrics, located in South Lake Tahoe.

Doyle has been providing medical care for the past 26 years in the community at his private office, Lake Tahoe Pediatrics. He previously served for many years as the director of the newborn nursery at Barton Memorial Hospital where he still practices in-patient pediatrics.

“Dr. Doyle has provided experienced care for many Barton babies over the years and offered exceptional leadership for our Family Birthing Center and nursery,” said Dr. Clint Purvance, Barton Health president and CEO. “We are proud to welcome him at Barton Pediatrics and look forward to his evolved role within our organization.”

Doyle is certified by the American Board of Pediatrics, and is a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). He maintains certification in the AAP and American Heart Association’s programs in Neonatal Resuscitation and Pediatric Advanced Life Support.

He earned his Bachelor of Science degree at the University of California at Berkeley, and his Doctor of Medicine degree at the Medical College of Wisconsin. His pediatric residency training was at the UCLA Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

“This is an exciting development in pediatric care for our community,” said Doyle. “I am looking forward to working more closely with Dr. Jennifer Ehmann and Dr. Danielle Priem, and the friendly staff at Barton Pediatrics. I am grateful for my outstanding team at Lake Tahoe Pediatrics and while I had been hopeful that more of them would be coming with me, I wish them the best of luck in their future endeavors as they pursue other opportunities.”

Doyle enjoys skiing, traveling the world, spending time with his wife, Madonna, and visiting their six adult children. He was a member of the Lake Tahoe Unified School District’s Governing Board from 2007-2016.

Barton Pediatrics specializes in total care for children, from newborns to teens up to 18 years of age.
