New doctor joins Mercer Island Pediatrics

Ten-year Island resident to work with five other board-certified pediatricians.

Mercer Island Pediatrics is welcoming a new doctor, Island resident Elizabeth Evans, to its practice. Evans completed her pediatrics training at Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston after finishing her medical degree at Baylor College of Medicine. She moved to Mercer Island in 2006.

Evans worked in the Seattle Children’s Hospital emergency room and urgent care for three years before going back to private practice, spending seven years at Swedish Children’s Clinic in West Seattle. She said is excited to practice pediatrics in the community she calls home, and enjoys building relationships with families and helping them to make informed decisions about their children’s care.

Evans, a mother of three girls, is very involved in the community. She has served on the Lakeridge PTA, has been a Girl Scout leader for six years and is a member of the National Charity League. In her free time, she enjoys baking, playing tennis and spending time outdoors with her husband and children.

Mercer Island Pediatrics, located at 9675 SE 36th St., now has six board-certified pediatricians. Call 206-275-2122 for more information, or visit
