Dr. Chiarina Galvez is a pediatric pulmonologist - a physician specially trained to diagnose and treat infants, children and adolescents with acute and chronic respiratory disorders.
“I work closely with patients, their families and their primary care physicians to help them manage symptoms, so they can thrive and have the best possible quality of life.”
Caring for many patients with chronic conditions, Dr. Galvez has always found that parents know their child best.
“I learn the most about a patient’s experiences by listening to parents. It’s very important to include the family in the decision making process.”
Dr. Galvez completed her pediatric residency at St. Barnabas Hospital in New York City and her pediatric pulmonology fellowship at New York Medical College/Westchester Medical Center in Valhalla, New York.
In addition to seeing patients in clinic, she also provides inpatient consultation services at Tucson Medical Center.
Motivated by a strong passion to care for underserved children, Dr. Galvez pursued a career in medicine to ensure families have access to high-quality, compassionate care.
When time allows, Dr. Galvez enjoys cooking and spending time with her husband, who is also a physician.
