Taking Care of Children Is a Gift
Posted on Feb 25, 2013 | 0 comments
For Marie E. Ribeiro, M.D., the greatest reward of being a pediatrician is when patients she took care of when they were growing up bring back their own children to see her.
“Being a pediatrician is a humbling experience,” says Dr. Ribeiro who sees her young patients at PAMF’s Daly City Pediatrics office on Sullivan Avenue in Daly City. “I know that parents are taking what is most precious in their lives, their children, and entrusting them to my care. When they then become parents themselves and then bring their own children back to me – that’s something very special!”
