James E. Schwanke, MD

      Dr. Schwanke is a Colorado native who moved to San Francisco in l973 to complete his pediatric training at UCSF where he graduated from the primary care pediatric program in 1976. He obtained his MD degree from the University of Chicago (Pritzker School of Medicine) in 1973. He is also a graduate of Colorado College (BA English l969).
     Dr. Schwanke founded Noe Valley Pediatrics in l977 and has since continuously practiced at our current location.
     He has been board certified in pediatrics since l978. He has special interest in nutrition, asthma, infectious disease, complementary  medicine and child development, but claims no specialized training in those areas.
    Dr. Schwanke has basic familiarity with Spanish and at one time was fluent in German (sadly much less so today).
    He enjoys gardening, travel (especially in Latin America and Hawaii), classical music, good food and wine.
     He and his wife Cecile Schwanke (who is a psychiatric nursing administrator at SFGH) reside in Bernal Heights have two daughters Theresa (a first year medical student at Cornell-Weil) and Maria (an enrolling freshman at NYU). Both daughters attended the San Francisco School and the International High School of FAIS. (this information last updated May of 2010)
