Nicole M. Hibbs, MD
From the time she was a child, Dr. Nicole Hibbs aspired to take care of children as a pediatrician. Throughout her education, other specialties were tempting as career choices. However, the beauty, resilience, and irresistible smiles of kids, from babies to teenagers, called her back to pediatrics for good.
Dr. Hibbs received her undergraduate degree from Westmont College, followed by medical school at Loma Linda University, then residency in Pediatrics at UC San Diego. She is board-certified in Pediatrics. Fortuitously, she received the Allen Schwartz Memorial Award in June 2010, as the resident in her class most demonstrating excellence in primary care. Dr. Hibbs is delighted and honored to carry on Dr. Schwartz's legacy of caring for children and their families.
As a mother herself, Dr. Hibbs looks forward to sharing the growth, development, trials, and triumphs of childhood with each of her patients and their parents. She loves her husband, Sean (a San Diego City firefighter), and sons, Peter and Caleb, dearly. They enjoy a happy and full life of adventures with the boys, the beach, gardening, cooking, and jogging with dogs Buck and Tika.
