Dr. Garza believes it is truly hard to have a bad day while working as a pediatrician at Central Oregon Pediatric Associates (COPA). "Certainly there are sad times, but the daily smiles, laughter and stories make each day special," she says.
Dr. Garza has trained and worked at both large metropolitan hospitals and in small rural communities. This experience gives her perspective on both the latest medical technology and ground-breaking treatments as well as time-tested home methods that have aided patients and their families for eons.
Dr. Garza, who is currently raising her own family, experiences with her children what many families who come to COPA are also experiencing. She works at the clinic just three days a week, but stays busy home-schooling her three children.
