Physician Bio

Dr. Shannon began practicing in the Saddleback Valley in l973, originally in Mission Viejo, and since 1996, in Laguna Hills. Dr. Shannon has a special interest in infant and toddler growth and development and in the parenting of first children.

"My basic philosophy about children is that we must listen to what they tell us from their first sound and facilitate their development of SELF, beginning at birth!"

Dr. Shannon has been married to his wife, Vera, since 1968 and has two children, Michael (a pediatric dentist in Mission Viejo) and Vanessa (a PhD. in sports psychology and assistant professor at the University of West Virginia). Dr. Shannon also has two grandsons, Spencer and Owen, who live at his home in San Clemente and brighten every day.
