“What’s not to like about kids? They are always interested in learning about themselves, and the world. They are constantly exploring themselves, taking in ideas, and using new information to create the adults they will become. And they often listen better when information comes from people other than their parents. I love seeing the world through their eyes, and being a part of their lives. I learn so much from them.”
“I also make sure that I listen, listen, listen. And then stop and listen more. Children are very astute and want and need to be heard, as do their parents.”
Dr. Guzman speaks both English and Spanish. She is Board Certified in Pediatrics from the American Board of Pediatrics, and a Fellow with the American Academy of Pediatrics.
“Just as I like helping to grow children, I love to garden. Fall may be my favorite season, but near the end of a long winter, I can be found buried in seed catalogues and gardening magazines. I play piano and guitar, and sing – like no one is listening; because I have been asked by my children NOT to sing!”
“Hiking, biking, skating, skiing, reading, sewing, cooking, baking (and eating!), and sleeping, all rank high on my favorite things to do. I have six children, from early forties to 12 year old twins. Now if you count the cats, dogs, ferrets, and frog…”
Doctors of internal medicine, also called “internists”, are dedicated to learning how to prevent, diagnose and treat diseases that affect adults. Internists are sometimes referred to as the “doctor’s doctor” because they often act as consultants to other physicians to help solve puzzling diagnostic problems. Doctors of internal medicine treat the whole person, not just internal organs.
Pediatrics is the branch of medicine dedicated to the medical care of infants, children and adolescents. Treating a child is not like treating a miniature adult. A major difference between pediatrics and adult medicine is that children cannot make decisions for themselves. We support the health and well-being of children and are advocates for children’s health issues.
