Gabriela M. Maradiaga Panayotti, MD
Fun and silly. My young patients often remind me to refocus on the important things in life by having fun and being silly. When I was in medical school, I remember thinking how much fun a day in the pediatric clinic was because you could do your work and be relaxed at the same time. Besides, kids were always straightforward and honest: if they liked you, they let you know, and if they didn't, they also let you know! That transparent and uncomplicated approach to human relationships was so refreshing. I am fully bilingual in Spanish and English and enjoy caring for families of all backgrounds. I also have a special interest in newborn care, breastfeeding, childhood obesity, and advocacy. When I am not at work, I am at home with my wonderful family and dog, usually cooking or playing outside. Soy completamente bilingue en Espanol e Ingles. Disfruto mucho estar al servicio de familias de origenes diversos.
