Known as “Dr. Gina”, Virginia Pitts Lilienthal was born in Charlotte, NC, to an Air Force Navigator father and a teacher mom. Dr. Gina grew up in Charleston, SC, with one younger sister. She enjoyed spending summers on Edisto Island and Myrtle Beach with her grandparents. She graduated from Bishop England High School and went on to Wofford College in upstate South Carolina. While at Wofford, she met her husband, Leslie, and they have been married for 19 years.
Dr. Gina returned to Charleston for her medical degree and then lived in Nashville, TN, for three years while she completed her pediatric residency. After residency, she lived in Murray, Kentucky, where she joined a pediatrician who had been in practice forty years. Dr. Gina practiced in Murray for eight years, became controlling partner of Murray Pediatrics and had both of her children. In 2010, the Lilienthals moved to Palm Beach County for her husband’s job promotion.
Dr. Gina briefly joined Palm Beach Pediatrics when she first moved to Florida nine years ago and then worked in Wellington for the past nine years. When the opportunity became available to join the Palm Beach Pediatrics family again in May 2019, she jumped at the opportunity!
When she is not working, Dr. Gina enjoys spending time with family and traveling. Her daughter, Rachel, is a sophomore at Dreyfoos in Visual Arts, and her son, Robbie, is in fifth grade at Coral Reef Elementary. Both of her children swim for East Coast Aquatic Club, so on her off days, you can most likely find her at the pool!
