Pediatrician located in North Beach, San Francisco, CA & San Mateo Blvd, CA

About Dr. Agbai

Dr. Natasha Agbai is a board-certified pediatrician who helps families optimize their children’s health through highly engaged care.  Her interest in medicine started in early childhood. She was born with a common heart defect and created a bond with an amazing pediatric cardiologist who inspired her to treat patients -- like family --  and always with integrity, love, and respect.

She completed her medical training at UCLA’s David Geffen School of Medicine, graduating with honors, followed by a pediatric residency at Stanford’s Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital.  Dr. Agbai pursued additional training in the field of nutrition including the Whole-Food-Plant-Based Diet. She became a diplomat of the American Board of Obesity Medicine and a contributing author to the Plantrician Project’s Pediatric Plant-Based Nutrition Guide.

After completing residency, she spent over a decade at Palo Alto Medical Foundation.  She earned a reputation as a keen diagnostician by picking up rare diagnoses early. At her practice at PAMF, she enjoyed watching patients grow from infants to young adults and developed several niches of care including newborns, complex pediatrics, and LGBTQ patients and families.  In addition, she created a successful pediatric weight management clinic which she brings to Discover Health. Many parents report that even their own nutrition improves after a visit with Dr. Agbai.  

As a mother of two, the humbling practice of breastfeeding turned her into a fierce advocate for early lactation help and she can offer practical tips and tricks to support you.  Bringing her first son home from the hospital brought along months of waking up at night to make sure her baby was still breathing. She realized that the fear of SIDS keeps many parents up at night.  In response, she created SIDSRisk.org, a SIDS prevention resource for parents and caregivers wishing to practice safer sleep habits so that everyone can sleep a little easier. When not caring for patients, you might find her trying to keep up with her two young boys, joining her husband in rooting for Stanford, or at Barry’s Bootcamp.  Dr. Agbai looks forward to seeing her patients in and around the peninsula and suspects that when families see her out with her boys they’ll feel reassured that pediatricians’ kids have boundless energy, mischievous smiles, and meltdowns too.
