Dr. Jalan Burton, or “Dr. J”, has over a decade of experience in well and sick child care, complex care, children with special needs, public health, youth development and health care consulting.

 

Dr. J believes that when children and families are supported they thrive. Her medical philosophy is centered on a deep commitment to building strong children and not just managing illness. Rather, her practice focuses on disease prevention, wellness enhancement, and community building.

 

Children spend most of their time at home and at school, making these the optimal locations for health promotion and intervention. Through HHP, Dr. J collaborates with families to provide comprehensive primary care that integrates traditional visits with consultations about healthy foods, quality sleep, and family routines. 

 

When Dr. J is not providing excellent patient care she is spending time with her husband and their three children. She is actively involved in her local Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO) and civic association. She enjoys cooking, urban gardening, exercising, listening to podcasts, and reading.
