Our Pediatricians

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.

 

ARIANA FOSTER, MD

Whether caring for a newborn or an adolescent, I emphasize communication and I believe an open-minded approach to parental concerns allows for optimal care and well-being of my patients.  I joined Catalina Pediatrics in 2006 and have practiced pediatrics in Tucson for 22 years. I truly love caring for children from the time they are born until they leave the nest.  It's an honor to watch your kids grow and change and to care for them over the years.  

 

I grew up in California, attended Cal Berkeley as an undergraduate, medical school at the University of California, Los Angeles, and completed my pediatric residency at the University of Arizona.  While balancing a full pediatric practice with family life, I also find time to assist our community's children through volunteer work with Integrative Touch for Kids, a local charitable organization that helps offers holistic healing touch therapies to children with chronic and acute illnesses and their family members. I have special interest in integrative medicine and international relief efforts.  I love to spend time with my two busy young adult boys, and enjoy yoga, meditation, dance, music, and travel.
