tara lefkowitzDr. Tara Lefkowitz M.D.
Dr. Lefkowitz grew up in upstate New York. She always knew she wanted to be a pediatrician, and she even told her own doctor so from the time she was about ten years old.

Dr. Lefkowitz received her medical degree from the State University of New York Health Science Center at Brooklyn. While there, she received a Health Care in Developing Countries Scholarship, which enabled her to spend two months working in Mexico and enhancing her fluency in Spanish. (Growing up with a mother who taught high school Spanish, Dr. Lefkowitz was encouraged to study the language at every opportunity!)

Dr. Lefkowitz then did her pediatric residency at the Albert Einstein Medical Center in the Bronx, New York and spent one month practicing pediatrics in Israel. During her residency, she also visited her best friend from grade school in Phoenix and fell in love with Arizona.

Dr. Lefkowitz has been practicing pediatrics in Phoenix since 1997. She spent 5 years at a community health center before joining The Phoenix Children's Center in 2004.

Outside of the office, Dr. Lefkowitz is quite busy with her family--her husband and three children, ages 8, 6, and 2. In her free time, she enjoys spending time outdoors with her family, hiking, playing soccer, scrapbooking, and, of course, traveling.

Dr. Lefkowitz is also busy with the newest addition to her family, her horse, named Honor, whom she enjoys riding as often as she can.
