Our Physicians

Dr. Michael JordanMichael Jordan, MD

“One of the rewards of my profession is having college students return to me for advice and guidance, patients who I have followed since their birth.”

Dr. Jordan’s exposure in medical school to influential neonatologists and pediatricians, including a one-year working relationship with well-known Iranian-American chief of pediatrics Mohsen Ziai, led him to the care of children.

Board certified in pediatrics, Dr. Jordan graduated cum laude from Northern Michigan University and earned his medical degree from the Michigan State University College of Human Medicine. He completed his pediatrics internship and residency at the University of Rochester, where he also served as pediatric chief resident. He serves as Medical Director for the Rochester General Medical Group Child Health Division, and is Chairman of the Quality and Health Information Committee. Dr. Jordan has worked in child abuse and neglect since the ‘90s.

He coaches baseball, watches his children play hockey and soccer, and describes his ideal day as climbing a high peak in the Adirondacks or canoeing in the wilderness.

 

Dr. Nivedita PrabhuNivedita P. Prabhu, MD

“My little patients never fail to bring a smile on my face and joy in my heart. Working with children gives me a great sense of purpose.”

Influenced greatly by an aunt who was a pediatrician, Dr. Prabhu had wanted to follow in her footsteps as far back as she can remember. She loves that she gets to make a difference in children’s lives, the most rewarding part of the job, and the variety of challenging cases keep the practice of medicine intellectually stimulating.

Board certified in pediatrics, Dr. Prabhu earned her medical degree at Jawaharial Nehru Medical College at Karnataka University in Belgaum, India, and completed residencies in pediatrics at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Pontiac, Michigan and at Children’s Hospital in Buffalo. She advocates a holistic approach that encompasses physical, emotional and behavioral issues, and has special interests in allergies, asthma, and promoting healthy lifestyle changes. In her spare time, she enjoys yoga, walking outdoors, music, reading, and spending time with family.
 

Dr. Steven GalutiaSteven T. Galutia, MD

“This is the best job in the world...watching these little people grow into unique big people.”

Dr. Galutia loves being a pediatrician – in fact, he never considered any other career possibilities.

Board certified in pediatrics and a fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics, Dr. Galutia earned his medical degree at the Loma Linda School of Medicine in Loma Linda, California, and completed his residency in pediatrics at the Geisinger Medical Center in Danville, Pennsylvania.

His hobbies include music, sports, and spending time with family.

 

Bjorseth CCaryl Bjorseth, MD

“The best part of my job is teaching new parents about their babies...listening to all their questions and excitement over their new arrival.”

When Dr. Bjorseth was 7, her brother was born with a congential heart defect. That’s when she knew she wanted to become a doctor. With her father’s encouragement, her dream became a reality.

Board certified in pediatrics, Dr. Bjorseth earned her medical degree from Far Eastern University in Manila, Philippines, then completed her residency at Hahnemann University Hospital in Philadelphia, where she received a Resident Teaching Award. She spent an additional fellowship year in ambulatory pediatrics at Cooper Hospital-University Medical Center in Camden, New Jersey. She has a special interest in pediatric dermatology.

When not working, she likes to canoe, camp, ski, golf and attend her children’s sporting events.

“Being a doctor has always been my dream, and now being one gives me a great sense of accomplishment. I love playing with kids, and seeing them on their well visits.”

Dr. Ong is a native of the Philippines, and earned her Medical Doctorate from the University of Santo Tomas in Manila. She completed her Pediatric residency training at Geisinger Medical Center in Danville, Pennsylvania. Dr. Ong is a member of the American Academy of Pediatrics, and has a special interest in newborn medicine and immunizations. In her free time she enjoys shopping, traveling, exploring different countries, and hanging out with friends.
