About Mark Needham, MD
Mark Needham, MD, had a hero growing up. His grandfather, a small-town doctor in Ohio, inspired him, and Dr. Needham looks forward to beating his grandfather’s 50-year practice streak. Dr. Needham received his undergraduate degree from Stanford University, then attended medical school at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland and received his training in family medicine at Santa Monica Hospital.
Medicine is a family affair in the Needham home in Santa Monica. Not only does his wife, Eileen McGrath, MD, also practice family medicine, but their daughter is currently at medical school at Case Western Reserve University, and she looks forward to carrying on the Needham family medical legacy. Dr, Needham also has two sons living in New York. Patrick is a professional dancer and choreographer, and Kevin graduated from the UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music.
In his spare time, Dr. Needham likes to hike and mountain bike, golf, travel, read, and of course, keep current on the most recent medical trends and discoveries. He is also an avid Lionel model train fan, and he is currently building a reproduction of the Santa Monica Canyon and Pacific Garden Railroad in his backyard.
