Dr. Q was born and raised in Caguas, Puerto Rico. At 5 years old she announced that she was going to be a Pediatrician just like her Godmother . She worked and studied hard and she did! She Graduated from Notre Dame High school and proceded to study pre med and a Biology Major at University Of Puerto Rico , Cayey campus. Then she attended Ponce School of Medicine in Ponce , P.R.
During her Medical school Pediatric rotations as a 4th year she came to Orlando for one rotation of 4 weeks at Arnold Palmer Hospital. She liked it so much that she ended doing three.It worked out great both ways so after graduation she started her Pediatric residency there on July 1993. When done with her residency She worked for their Hospital managed practice for 4 years before starting in private practice with a couple of groups and enjoyed doing some extra time doing Locum tenens in Low income areas in Georgia .
On September 2003 Dr Q Pediatrics was founded and opened it's doors on January 2nd 2004. Comprehensive approach to health has always being key working closely with Dr. G and Pediatrics specialists all over town . Dr Q has a very special interest in premature babies. It is imperative for her at this point to have a small practice atmosphere that includes knowing closely her patients and families .
Some of their patients are now all grown up and started to bring the new generation back...which is the biggest compliment to a job well done!
