I have had the wonderful opportunity to meet and help care for many of Dr. Lam’s families and patients since January of 2015 and I consider it a privilege and honor to continue providing care for Dr. Lam’s patients since his retirement in June of 2016. I want to assure you that I am available and am dedicated to providing excellent care for your children.
I am a board certified pediatrician and have been a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics since 2002. I have nearly 20 years of outpatient and inpatient pediatric experience and have been in private practice in Virginia and Hawaiʻi for 15 years. I am a Board Member of Family Voices Hawaii, and the American Academy of Pediatrics - Hawaii Chapter. I also serve as a Health Consultant for Keiki o Ka Aina Learning Center and am on the Advisory Committee for Healthy Childcare Hawaii Social Emotional and Behavioral Health Committee.
I am the mother of two wonderful teenagers and the wife of a retired Navy P3 pilot. Family is my life and I believe in a strength-based, family-centered, holistic approach to health. My staff and I encourage patients and parents to ask questions and be actively involved in their medical care. Our mission is to educate, empower and partner with parents and children for optimal health and well being. By instilling healthy habits early, our hope is for your child to spend as much time as possible playing, growing and learning. Our keiki are our future and their health and the health of our families is everything. We take the job of caring for your child’s health very seriously.
My staff and I look forward to sharing in the growth and development of your child and family. Raising a child is an amazing adventure and we are so thankful that we get to be a part of this journey, and can’t wait to watch as you and your keiki grow together.
Dr. Jenny Welham (November 2016)
Starting December 21, 2016, you may see a new face at Island Pediatris of Honolulu. Dr. Vicky Schneider will be seeing patients in the office on select Wednesdays and when I am out of the office. She is a valuable addition to our team and a wonderful pediatrician.
"I am very excited to have the opportunity to be assisting Dr. Welham on Wednesday mornings. I have been a general pediatrician for 30 years. I started practice in California and have been in Hawaii for the last 22 years. After working on the staff at Kapi'olani Medical Center for 13 years, I returned to general pediatrics and now provide help to various practices around the island.
I am the mother of 4 fabulous children (all grown up) and now a grandmother to 2 of the cutest keiki ever! My wonderful husband of 35 years, Peter, is a doctor here in Hawaii as well.
I bring the same love and joy that I raised my children with to the children I have the privilege of caring for in practice. I believe in focusing on health maintenance through positive attitude, healthy lifestyle choices, and partnering with parents to address medical issues in a sensitive and sensible way." Dr. Vicky Schneider.
