“Grow with the flow…”

Good morning everyone! It’s been awhile since we’ve written and we wanted to thank every one of our patients for helping our practice grow since we started back in the summer of 2016. In these short 4 years, we’ve outgrown our office and back in February, we moved into a larger one (come and visit us now in #803!!!). Also, with much fanfare, we’re happy to announce we have a new physician, Dr. Carolina Villanueva, who is joining us starting today!

Dr. Villanueva is already well known in our community as she has been practicing mainly in the Key Biscayne, Midtown, and Miami Beach areas since finishing her training in 2006. She comes to us from Argentina, where she studied medicine at the University of El Salvador in Buenos Aries. She subsequently did a residency in Pediatrics and then a fellowship in Neonatology at the Hospital Frances. After moving to the United States, she completed her training at Jackson Memorial Hospital with a second residency in pediatrics! She received her Board Certification in Pediatrics in 2008. We find ourselves very fortunate to have her join our practice and hope you will help us welcome her to the practice!

Go to the doctor’s office during a pandemic? Absolutely!

Why should we keep our appointments with the pediatrician when there’s a pandemic going on? Isn’t that too risky? Our Dr. Marimon discusses the importance of keeping up with your children’s health, staying up to date with vaccinations (including the annual flu vaccine) and continuing to follow routine well child visits with your pediatrician!

Coronavirus–what do we know? What can we do?

Coronavirus 19 (or Covid-19) has, in a few short weeks, traveled all around the world and has infected thousands already. What do we know about this new pandemic and its cause? What can we do to minimize exposure to this new virus? Our Dr. Marimon speaks with Rashel Diaz on Un Nuevo Dia about this new contagion and what we can do to best protect ourselves.

There’s a vaccine against cancer! Should I give it to my child?

Almost 80 million Americans have Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), a virus that is a cause of genital warts and cancers including cervical, penile, anal, and oropharyngeal which kill thousands annually. Our Dr. Gilma Marimon shares her views on the HPV vaccine on Un Nuevo Dia!
