Pediatrician Dr. Guillermo Sandoval’s life has slowed down quite a bit since he started with Camarena Health – which is exactly what he wanted.
“I came to Camarena Health after practicing emergency medicine for nearly 20 years,” says Dr. Sandoval. “I really appreciate getting to now grow with my patients. I didn’t realize how much I would enjoy watching these kids grow and develop.”
Dr. Sandoval now works at our Camarena Kids’ Pediatric Health Center, where he is able to connect with patients, parents, and other providers, rather than dash back and forth between emergencies. While the transition to primary care was initially difficult, Dr. Sandoval feels he is now doing his best work – and making new friends along the way.
“There’s this one little girl who, in her first couple of years, had a really rough time – including an ICU stay at Valley Children’s,” says Dr. Sandoval. “For the first two to three years of her life, she was terrified of me. I’d walk into the room, and she would bolt and cling on to her mom.”
“Now, she’s my buddy,” continues Dr. Sandoval, with a smile. “Which is gratifying.”
