Patricia Avila, MD

Why did you choose your profession?
I chose to become a pediatrician because children inspire me! Children teach us how to live joyfully & how to have a pure heart! As a pediatrician, I have the privilege of taking care of children everyday & enjoy every moment of it. I have the opportunity of witnessing the beauty of a child growing up from newborn into adolescence. I am able to partner with the family on improving the lives of these children & helping them lead a healthier life. I can’t see myself doing anything different than being pediatrician!

Why do you work at NOAH?
I believe that every child deserves to have access to the very best medical care no matter their circumstances. Working with NOAH allows me to serve children from all different backgrounds & especially the underserved. NOAH also offers several different services to meet all needs of these children, not just medical care.

Hobbies/Activities
In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family & being a part of all my daughters activities. I also enjoy hiking & traveling when able.
