Damon Korb, M.D., F.A.A.P.
Director, Center for Developing Minds

Damon Korb, M.D., a board certified behavioral and developmental pediatrician, examines the neurodevelopmental brain functions that determine how a child learns, behaves and socializes. With the opening of the Center for Developing Minds in 2005, Dr. Korb has held pivotal roles in the establishment of three unique clinics in Santa Clara County that serve children with developmental variations.

During 2004-2005, Dr. Korb served as the pediatric consultant for the Autism Spectrum Disorder Clinic at Kaiser Permanente. While at Kaiser, he assisted with the development of a prototype multidisciplinary clinic for children with autism and related disorders, which will be replicated throughout the Kaiser system.

In 2000, Dr. Korb joined the Santa Clara Valley Medical Center and created the Center for Learning and Achievement (CLA). This program brought educational and developmental services to a previously underserved population in Santa Clara County. At the CLA, he directed the educational rotation in behavior and development for the Lucille Packard Children's Hospital pediatric residents.

Dr. Korb is a frequent speaker, having lectured to parents and professionals on a wide range of neurodevelopmental topics. Prior to specializing in child behavior and development, Dr. Korb worked as a primary care pediatrician in New York, California, and North Carolina.

Dr. Korb completed his behavioral and developmental fellowship training at the Center for Development and Learning, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. Dr. Korb finished his pediatric internship and residency at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee, and earned his medical degree in 1994 from the University of Rochester School of Medicine in Rochester, New York. Dr. Korb received a B.S. in psychobiology from the University of Southern California in 1990.
