Shouldn't your kids' doctor be a Superhero?

Dr. JB completed her Pediatric Residency Training at Oregon Health and Sciences University (Doernbecher Children's Hospital) in 2010. She is certified by the American Board of Pediatrics. Dr. JB moved back to Bend in the summer of 2010 and practiced at BMC Pediatrics until 2017. While at BMC she was involved in many committees and projects including helping start the pediatric hospitalist program at St. Charles Medical Center.

Dr. JB was introduced to the Direct Primary Care model in residency and was intrigued by the idea of the "old school" physician and the ability to provide higher quality patient care. In 2017 she started Bend Kids Personal Pediatrics.

Bend Kids was the first true Direct Primary Care pediatric clinic in Bend, and provided an innovative, complete healthcare model for kids. While Dr. JB loved the level of care she was providing for her patients and was thriving in the DPC model, she quickly realized that this level of care should be offered to the whole family.

This realization led to the expansion of Bend Kids/Bend Care, which now provides Direct Primary Care for patients of all ages. Dr. Warton is now working to change the way primary care is delivered in Bend.

Dr. JB loves the outdoors and spending time with her three young sons, practicing yoga, paddle boarding, traveling, skiing, snowboarding and more.

Dr. JB chose to specialize in Pediatrics because she loves taking care of kids and really enjoys the relationships she has with her patients and their parents. She knows that when kids are sick, it can be extremely stressful for parents. She feels honored to be trusted by parents with their children's health. Her areas of special interest include allergy, asthma, eczema, and care of newborns. She believes kids should be allowed to be kids and loves partnering with parents to promote healthy kids through preventative care.

But possibly the best part for Dr. JB is that kids are funny and they make her laugh at work, every day.
