MCH Fellowship Faculty

The PCC MCH Fellowship's faculty includes 14  fellowship-trained family physicians as well as obstetricians, pediatricians, and neonatologists. Currently, our fellowship program is directed by Leah Suarez-Abraham, MD and Alexander Wu, MD.

Dr. Leah Suarez-Abraham (left) graduated from Mayo Medical School in Rochester, MN in 2000 and completed her residency at Ventura County Medical Center Family Practice Residency in 2003. She graduated from the PCC MCH Fellowship in 2004. After completing her training, she volunteered full-time at the Hospitalito Atitlan in Santiago Atitlan, Guatemala. During her three years there she provided outpatient, inpatient, emergency, and maternity services. Upon her return from serving the Tz'utujil Maya, she joined PCC as an attending and became MCH Fellowship Co-Director in 2012. She finds her job rewarding and loves how the fellows constantly challenge her to become a better physician. Her triplets (spontaneously conceived!) keep her very busy while her loving husband keeps her sane.

Dr. Alexander Wu (right) graduated from UCLA School of Medicine in 1992, the Long Beach Memorial Family Medicine Residency in 1995, and the PCC MCH Fellowship in 1998. He was director of inpatient services at the FM residency in Long Beach until 1997 and has served as one the MCH Fellowship Co-Directors at PCC for almost 20 years. His passion for teaching extends beyond the routine to innovative teaching methods such as medical improv to help engage learners in the chaotic environment of the hospital. He enjoys mentoring faculty, the drama of obstetrics, and laughing with his family and friends. He is the recipient of several teaching awards.
