Catalina Pediatrics was established in 1974 and has since expanded to include a total of six pediatricians: Drs. Steve Goldberg, Janel Lloyd, Sosan Moussa, Ariana Foster, Curtis Johnson and Alina Boelman. All of our doctors are board-certified (BC) and fellows of the American Academy of Pediatrics (FAAP). They all also did a portion of their medical training at the University of Arizona, and remain connected with the community of Tucson.
ALINA BOELMAN, MD
Born and raised in Arizona, I began my adventure into medicine here in Tucson at the University of Arizona. After medical school, I traveled to California to complete my residency in pediatrics at Stanford University. My love for the desert and the people of Tucson brought me back to Arizona after I received the wonderful opportunity to join Catalina Pediatrics in 2018.
I believe in an integrative approach to healthcare as well as the importance of preventative medicine. I think being a pediatrician is such a privilege and am so grateful for the opportunity to care for kids in times of need as well as be part of the most intimate moments of a family’s life. I view parents as partners in their child's healthcare team (who else knows your kid better than you?) and will always listen to concerns with an open mind. I recently gave birth to a beautiful baby girl in January 2021 and hope to draw on my own experiences as a new parent to better help the families I see in my practice.
When not at the office, I enjoy spending time with my husband, daughter and 2 dogs, running, cooking, and reading new books.
