Dr. Ikeda joined the Children’s Specialty Center of Nevada in 2011. He is a Board Certified Pediatrician and is Board Certified in Pediatric Hematology Oncology. The Children’s Specialty Center worked to recruit Dr. Ikeda in part because of his skills in managing the complexities and needs of bone marrow transplant patients. His research interests include stem cell transplants as well as cell and gene therapies.
Dr. Ikeda received his M.D. from the John A. Burns School of Medicine where he also completed his residency in Pediatrics. He completed his fellowship in Pediatric Hematology Oncology at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. He served as the Assistant Director of Pediatric Blood and Marrow Transplant program at Mattel Children’s Hospital at UCLA.

He enjoys watching sports, reading, music, and outdoor activities with his family.
Amber Federizo, RN, MSN, FNP-BC
Amber is a bit of a rarity–she’s a native Nevadan who grew up in rural Nevada in towns such as Eureka, Carson City, and Fallon, NV. She is an alumni of the University of Nevada, Reno and was able to complete her education thanks to the support of scholarships provided by Nevadans for Nevadans such as the Millenium and Pennington scholarships. She is grateful to have the opportunity to return the gift by providing medical care to the community which supported her.
Looking back, it’s probably not a huge surprise she went into medicine. As she points out, as a child she can remember playing alongside her brother with Legos and keeping Lego men alive in elaborate brick hospitals until such time as the rest of their body pieces could be found or they fully recovered. (As it turns out her brother would always build things like police cars, and he’s now a police officer!)
Amber is especially grateful to provide medical services and expertise to those in rural areas. She understands how difficult it can be to access even basic medical care for those living several hours away from a metropolitan area. She is among those from the Hemophilia Treatment Center who travel several times a year to provide on site clinics for those with inherited bleeding disorders in areas which include Winnemucca, the Owyhee Indian community, Ely and Elko. Clinics in Reno are held more frequently occurring about twice a month. Her love of Nevada and its residents runs deep.
She adds: “I plan on running with the pack (University of Nevada, Reno representing Northern Nevada) and living with the rebels (University of Nevada, Las Vegas representing Southern Nevada) to ensure all Nevadans with bleeding disorders are cared for.”
Erin Foster-Vre Non, Nurse Practicioner
Erin Foster-Vre Non is a native Nevadan who grew up in the small town of Minden, Nevada, where it was not uncommon for her to ride her dirt bike to school.
Her medical career started when she was an Emergency Medical Technician with East Fork Fire and then she transitioned into the role of apprentice nurse at Renown Regional. Her nursing background consists of Emergency Room, Neonatal Intensive Care, and Labor and Delivery. She thoroughly enjoyed the adrenaline rush of emergency medicine and surgery! In her early days as a Nurse Practitioner, Erin worked in high-risk obstetrics and gynecology and also had the opportunity to continue her studies and obtain post-masters certification in surgical first assist. In 2015, Erin joined the Hemophilia Treatment Center where she is honored to provide a much needed service to patients throughout the state.
She considers herself an outdoor person and in her spare time will often be found snowboarding, riding a dirt bike, skateboarding or hiking. She is a proud graduate of the University of Nevada, Reno and supports all things Wolf Pack. Additionally, she was able to complete her college education thanks to a number of scholarships, including the Millennium, WICHE and HRSA. That financial help in pursuing her educational training is one of the reasons she feels so gratified to give back to the community which supported her development.
We provide treatment, diagnosis and other related services in our Las Vegas and Reno clinic locations. We also provide regular Comprehensive Clinics throughout the year in the cities of Ely, Elko, Winnemucca, and the Owyhee Indian Community.
