Getting to know your provider

  • 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.

  • What are your passions outside of your profession?

    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.

I love how much Dr. Avila actually listens to concerns I have. She will ask questions to get a better understanding. You don’t feel rushed with her at all and she is very thorough. You can tell that she genuinely cares for her patients!
