With 30 years of experience as a pediatrician, Dr. Sarmiento has helped manage many pediatric chronic illnesses. She takes a special interest in the treatment of asthma and allergies, and sees children of all ages and throughout early adulthood.
Around 15-20% of children in the United States live with chronic conditions like asthma and diabetes, as well as developmental disabilities, Attention-Deficit Disorder (ADHD), and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). These children require very different levels of treatment, but they share a need for extra attention and support.
Personalized support and attention for children with chronic conditions
Dr. Sarmiento spends time getting to know each child and giving parents the extra support you need. Not only does she have over 30 years of experience—she’s a mom herself. Visit our office to…
