University of Arizona
St. Joseph’s Hospital
I remember when I was 13, I figured I was going to grow up someday and be a mother, and that I was going to have more questions than anyone was able to handle, so I need to be a doctor.
When kids tell me what they want to be when they grow up, like a soccer player for example, I tell them I think it’s great; and I also bring the reality with questions like, “Well you know you need to go to school for that, right?” I try and see if there’s a chance to sow a seed, to inspire them.
I love working at Mountain Park. The staff is amazing. The doctors here have been here for years, decades even. For us it’s really about the patients and the population.
To see the impact Dr. Perez had on one of our patients watch her story.
