I strongly recommend fully vaccinating kids against preventable diseases on the schedule approved by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). I do not support nonmedical vaccine exemptions.
I support parents and caregivers in their challenging and sometimes overwhelming endeavor to raise assertive and loving people. I believe health is a gift that requires nurturing and care. I recognize and sometimes utilize alternative as well as standard approaches. I enjoy caring for babies, toddlers, school-age children, and teens."– Désirée Bix, MD
Growing up in England, Malaysia, and Germany, Dr. Bix has a true appreciation of diversity and is passionate about equality for all – no matter your circumstances or quirks! That’s one of the reasons she loves working for Metropolitan Pediatrics, where providers and patients alike come from a variety of unique backgrounds.
Although Dr. Bix has resided in the US since her residency and internship at Philadelphia’s Albert Einstein Medical Center, she still maintains British citizenship. She became an Oregonian in 1995.
Throughout the years, Dr. Bix has learned that there are many ways to accomplish the same goal and advocates always being nice to your kids especially when they may not “deserve” it. Challenging moments will pass.
Dr. Bix has teenage twin sons, one with spina bifida, and an adult daughter. She’s still trying to determine which teenager is more trouble, the typically or atypically developing twin. To unwind, she enjoys reading and skiing. And you wouldn’t know if she didn’t tell you, but she’s fluent in German and also speaks a tiny bit of French.
"We love Dr. Bix for our 3 and 7 year olds. She explains things well and is very calming."– Brandy S.
"The ladies at the reception desk were so welcoming. It seems that so many places of business have dropped the warm welcome and act as if our bring there is an inconvenience. It was a real pleasure to be greeted this way. There was no wait to speak of, which was nice. Seeing Dr. Bix is always a highlight of our day! She is the finest pediatrician there is. She is kind, thorough and treats my daughter with great respect and care. The entire visit, from start to finish, was very positive. Thank you to Sean, who assisted us during our visit by sharing resources. He is a wealth of knowledge!"– Grace H.
