Dr. Patricia Eck is an associate physician in urgent care at Rady Children's Hospital-San Diego.
After earning her college and medical degrees in Phoenix, she returned to her hometown of Tucson for a pediatrics residency at the University of Arizona. During the residency, she had the opportunity to spend six weeks working in Bolivia, an experience that gave her a taste of practicing medicine abroad and enabled her to improve her Spanish.
After her residency, she joined the Tucson-based El Rio Community Health Center to practice general pediatrics with a diverse patient population. During her tenure, she welcomed her first daughter. The opportunity then arose to move to San Diego, closer to family.
