Meet Nina Shapiro, MD

I'm Nina Shapiro. I'm a pediatric ear, nose and throat specialist at UCLA. I've been there for about 14 years. I practice ear, nose and throat surgery on all sorts of kids. Kids with something as simple as an ear infection to kids with something more complex, like a serious breathing problem. I see kids ages 0-18 years and I love my work. I have two young kids, ages 8 years and 4 years. And my husband is also a doctor. A surgeon. So our lives are quite busy. We do love to be with our kids as much as we possible can. My husband and I like jogging and running. So when we have a little bit of time together, which is usually in the very early morning hours before work, we like to out for a little bit of a run. And I wrote a book for parents and caregivers called, Take a Deep Breath Clear the Air for the Health of Your Child. And it answers all questions for ages 0-5 years from nose to lungs.
