Cassandra Conrad, MD

  • Attending Physician, Division of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics
  • Assistant Professor, UC Department of Pediatrics



As a developmental pediatrician, I specialize in the diagnosis and longitudinal care for youth with autism spectrum disorder and other neurodevelopmental conditions. In my work, I strive to align with families and patients to help them reach their individual goals. I am honored to work with my patients and to have the opportunity to get to know them over time.

I was inspired to become a developmental pediatrician through my mother’s work as a child psychologist specializing in developmental evaluations. Observing the love and advocacy of parents for their children and developing relationships with families are other attributes that drew me to the field of developmental behavioral pediatrics.

In my research, I search for ways to improve access to diagnostic evaluations and therapeutic services for neurodevelopmental concerns.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family.
