Matthew Serna, M.D.
Matthew Serna, M.D. joined Hartford Area Pediatrics in 2022. Dr. Serna is a board-certified pediatrician and a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics.
He was born and raised in south Texas, received his undergraduate degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and attended medical school at the University of California, San Francisco. He went on to complete his pediatric residency at the University of Washington/Seattle Children’s Hospital, where he was one of four pediatric residents in his class who spent a year training with a focus in primary care in urban and rural Alaska.
After residency, he worked for over five years in Anchorage, AK as a primary care pediatrician and, most recently, as an outpatient pediatric consultant for the Alaska Native medical system.
His wife, Emily, is a pediatric hospitalist who is excited to join the group of physicians at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center, and they are parents to two lovely children. If he could, he would spend every waking second outside running, hiking, biking, cross-country skiing, camping, or simply lazing about. He also enjoys cooking, gardening, and – being a multi-instrumentalist – playing, writing and listening to all kinds of music! He is thrilled to have the opportunity to return to New England and become the newest member of the Hartford Area Pediatrics family!
