Instructor, Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics

Research Interests

Dr. Bannett seeks to use data-driven methods to develop reliable quality measures for management of children with developmental and behavioral (DB) conditions in community-based primary care. Current observational studies use multi-level analysis of electronic health record data and clinician interviews to describe variation in identification and management of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and autism spectrum disorder (ASD) by primary care providers. Dr. Bannett plans to use natural language processing technology to accurately assess quality of care, with the ultimate goal of improving community-based health care delivery for children with DB conditions.


Dr. Bannett completed his medical studies at Hebrew University in Israel, and completed pediatrics residency at Tel Aviv University, Asaf Harofeh Medical Center. After practicing as a community-based primary care provider and developmental pediatrician in Israel, he came to Stanford in 2016 to complete a clinical fellowship in Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics (DBP). In fellowship, he engaged in community-based health services research, under the mentorship of Dr. Lynne Huffman and Dr. Heidi Feldman. After fellowship, Dr. Bannett was selected to receive funding through the Department of Pediatrics “Bridge to K” program, and is currently appointed as an instructor in the division of DBP.
