Dr. Jimenez believes patient care is best done as team approach. Families are invaluable members of our care team. Compassionate and comprehensive care is what we strive to provide. A child deserves not just excellent medical care, but a holistic approach to health.
Teaching our learners, medical students or residents, is a passion shared by those in academic medicine. It is a privilege to help shape the future of our profession, not just by teaching, but my mentoring as well.
