Dr. Clara Lee takes care of RPG's children in our Ridgefield Park office. After growing up in Cresskill, NJ, Dr. Lee received her undergraduate degree from Columbia University in New York City. She then went on to receive her Medical Degree from the New Jersey Medical School. Dr. Lee completed her specialty pediatric training in Philadelphia's prestigious St. Christopher's Hospital residency program, one of the busiest Children's Hospitals in the Northeast of the United states. There she was involved in caring for some of the most complicated surgical and medical problems that children experience, as well as performing research on the topic of Quality Improvement in Primary Care. She therefore chose to bring her very impressive academic/training background to the Riverside family. She is Board Certified in Pediatrics and is a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Dr. Lee's special interests within pediatrics include Asthma, Eczema, and Breastfeeding. She is fluent in Korean, and speaks Spanish. Besides taking care of Riverside's young patients, she also enjoys reading, listening to Classical and Jazz music, and loves to cook a diverse array of cuisines. In terms of her philosophy on caring for children, Dr. Lee explains, "Balance and prevention are the keys to good health. Children have so much potential and I love working with them and their families towards providing preventative healthcare for New Jersey's future."
