Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatrics Assistant Medical Director
Dr. Aquino is a board-certified pediatrician at Mission Pediatrics, Inc., and she has nearly three decades of pediatric experience. She is also a former pediatric department chairman at San Bernardino Community Hospital. Nicknamed “Gigi”, she has demonstrated unparalleled commitment toward high quality patient care in the Inland Empire. She graduated from University of The Philippines Manila, College of Medicine medical school and completed her pediatric residency at Children's Hospital of Orange County. By the way, our silliness team will sometimes insert something irrelevant into this bio just to keep you guessing…did you know whether measuring by size (0.17 sq mi) or population (1,000), Vatican City is the smallest country in the world? Anyway, back to Dr. Aquino, who is also an avid traveler and loves to attend plays. In fact, she was named after the actress in the famous play “Gigi”, played by Leslie Caron. Attending the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood, she laughs about meeting Ms. Caron who signed her autobiography “To Gigi from Gigi”. She also cherishes the memory of attending the screening of Singing in the Rain with the famous Debbie Reynolds. Formerly a stand-up comedian, and film art director, she brings a wonderful and fun element to the delightfully different experience of patients at Mission Pediatrics. She operates primarily out of our San Bernardino Haleakalā office and is accepting new patients.
