Why I Chose Medicine

I knew I wanted to be a doctor from the time I received my first doctor’s kit. I did not know which specialty I wanted until my Pediatric rotation. It is so indescribably rewarding when you help make sick children feel better and watch them grow into individual beings. I love getting big hugs and big smiles. I think that is what I was put on earth to do.

Hobbies and Special Interests

Love to cook and bake. If I was not a pediatrician I would be a chef! I also enjoy music, movies, reading and taking naps! I believe if everyone took a nap in the afternoon the world would be a happier place!

Quote from Patient

Quote from an autistic patient who came in due to pain from an ingrowing toenail: “Dr. Pizarro, can you kiss my toe?”
