Pediatrician Dr. Veronica Gonzalez-Rivera began seeing patients at CompleteCare Health Network in September, just a few months after becoming a new mom. Although she has been practicing for a few years now, the new addition to her family has brought her new perspective into her patients’ questions and concerns.
“It’s completely different to see parents and their children now that I am a mom,” said Rivera. “I understand them more, I feel their pain more. I try to be even nicer than I was before to my patients, because I personally know how it feels to have a child and what it’s like when they are sick.”
