One of the most important aspects of being a pediatrician and of Orange Pediatric Care is bedside manner. As represented by the Teddy Bear. Here at Orange Pediatric Care, bedside manner is something that Dr. Maria Bernardez and Evelyn Santiago our nurse practitioner excel at.
Bedside manner is not something that can be measured by some standardized metric. It is not something that rushed, faked, or ignored. When you are dealing with children making them comfortable going to the doctor and talking to the doctor is very important.
Dr. Bernardez is a board certified pediatrician and even though that knowledge is important to your child, it is just as important that they trust her, not just as a doctor but as a friend. Evelyn also has a wonderful way with children, she is a natural at dealing with children and quickly earning their trust and friendship. Our office is not just a doctors office it is a pediatricians office and that means it is a friendly office, a safe office, a trusting office.
As a good bedside manner is important for the children it is also important for the parents. Dr. Bernardez and Evelyn will always take the time to explain everything to you and they are more than happy to answer all of your questions. They believe that parents need to be well informed and be able to make the best decisions for their children. Unlike some of the larger medical groups which may not have the time to spend with each patient as an individual, we at Orange Pediatric Care enjoy having the time to spend and get to know our "families".
Our touchstone of, "Quality, Compassionate, Personalized care that you and your family will know and trust." is more than just a saying to us. It embodies our philosophy and desire as a pediatric medical practice. At Orange Pediatric Care, P.C. it is who we are.
Thank you for letting us be part of your family's health care!
