About Me

Dr. Boyd is a board certified pediatrician and has been practicing pediatrics in the Bay Area for about 40 years. As an adolescent he took great pleasure in helping care for two younger siblings and decided, early on, to make a career of working with children. Dr. Boyd completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Colorado and then spent two years at the University of Colorado School of Medicine in Denver as the only African-American medical student at that time. After University of Colorado School of Medicine, Dr. Boyd transferred to the University of California, San Francisco where he received his M.D. and did his pediatric residency at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland before co-founding Hilltop Pediatrics in 1986.

Dr. Boyd is conversant in Spanish, Portuguese and French. His patients and their families appreciate that they can communicate with him in their native languages. He loves traveling, especially to places where he can speak the language and improve his skills.

Dr. Boyd grew up singing in the gospel choir; this exposure to choral music and piano led to the enjoyment of all music, including jazz, opera, and other classical music. When not practicing medicine or traveling, he spends time gardening and cooking, both of which are traditions he carried over from his upbringing in a large family. He hopes, someday, to find the time to resume choral singing and playing the piano.
