  • About

    Physician Bio

    When board-certified pediatrician Patricia Tenold, MD, MPH, joined Washington
    Township Medical Foundation in March 2022, it immediately felt like home.

    “I grew up in Fremont and still live in the area,” Dr. Tenold
    said. “It’s a wonderful, dynamic region and a great place
    to raise a family.” That family includes a 3-year-old toddler and
    one on the way. In addition, her dad was a physician on the WTMF staff
    for many years before before retiring from clinical duties, and her mom
    is a longtime pediatrician in the community.

    The best part about her job, she told us, is developing a long-term relationship
    with families. “You get to take care of the most important thing
    to a family –– their child,” she said. That care can
    start with a prenatal consultation with Dr. Tenold and pick up with a
    visit after the baby is born. “As a pediatrician, this is one of
    my favorite times,” she added. “A newborn’s parents
    really appreciate the teaching we can offer, and it’s fun to be
    part of such a special time in their lives.” Dr. Tenold said this
    relationship usually continues into a child’s late teens or beyond.

    Throughout her career, Dr. Tenold has made public health a priority. She’s
    been involved in many community volunteer projects, including HIV prevention,
    nutrition for at-risk youth, preventive health programs and more. Her
    Master in Public Health degree is from University of California, Irvine,
    and she earned a medical degree from Albany Medical College in Albany,
    N.Y. In her career, she has taken part in many scholarly and research
    projects, and has received awards for clinical excellence. Her board certification
    is from the American Board of Pediatrics.

    Away from work, she enjoys life as a busy mom while she and her husband
    plan for their 2nd child, all while trying to squeeze in some reading
    and checking out the local parks.

    “I really love being a pediatrician,” she said. “Every
    day, I get a chance to meet children and their families and be a part
    of ensuring good health, and I cannot think of anything more important.”
