"Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much." – Helen Keller
Alina M. Galliano - Pardo, M.D.

We live in a time where a vast amount of information based on opinions and personal experience are published. While Dr. Galliano - Pardo doesn’t discard that information, she believes that healthcare providers should offer options that are based on the latest research and medical evidence, while keeping in mind, what is best for each patient. Dr. Galliano - Pardo has made a commitment to remain up-to-date in her medical knowledge, to rely less on these opinions, and focus on options for patients that are based on the latest medical evidence. She believes in a collaborative, non-judgmental approach to help facilitate patient education on current evidence-base options used to treat and manage their clinical problems. During this process, patients are active participants in their care, discovering hope and motivation that can lead to medical decisions and treatments that meet the needs of the patient and their families.
