Dr. Claudia Hong was born and raised in the suburbs of San Francisco, California. She graduated from the University of Southern California (Fight On!) where she double majored in Biology and Communication in 2004. After graduation, she moved back to the San Francisco area to work at the Make-A-Wish Foundation, helping grant wishes of children who have life-threatening illnesses. It was through this experience that she quickly realized that she wanted to spend the rest of her life helping children and their families. So, she pursued this passion, and graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University with dual degrees in Medicine and Master of Health Administration. She and her husband then moved to Houston for their respective medical residencies. She completed her pediatric residency training at the University of Texas Health Science Center Houston and joined Blue Fish thereafter.
Claudia loves caring for all kids, from babies to adolescents. She wants to encourage parents to be active participants in their children’s care by working together as a team to ensure that their children grow up happily and healthily. She is passionate about helping new parents navigate the exciting, yet daunting newborn period from breastfeeding to sleeping and everything in between. Dr. Hong is conversant in Cantonese and speaks limited Spanish.
Claudia and her husband have a little girl, Ellie, whom they adore. Ellie has not only infinitely enriched Claudia’s personal life, but she has also made Claudia a better pediatrician. The Hong family loves spending time outdoors with their two dachshunds (Peanut and Daisy), traveling, bbq-ing, and eating!
