Renee Rodriguez, MD is a Hispanic woman, physician, mother of two, and wife of a fellow physician. She works part time as a pediatric cardiologist for a private group which provides her an ideal work-life balance. When she isn't working, Renee loves blogging, fitness, meditation, cooking, making connections and taking advantage of living in the beautiful Bay Area.
In her own words,
"I thrive on connection with my patients and their families in my clinic room. To me that is the sacred space that is the most amazing thing about being a physician. The biggest challenge is maintaining empathy and compassion without internalizing the difficulties so much that it affects your mental well being.
I like to look sharp and put together at work. I love to dress up and show my own flare. I’m a huge fan of color, heels, and dresses. I tend to think of my clinic as my own personal runway. When I feel confident in my appearance it shows in my clinic room."
