Dr. Banzuela's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Banzuela "Dr. Cresencia D. Banzuela has been a pediatrician since 1990. She decided to become a doctor at 8th grade when she helped take care of her aunt with breast cancer. On her 3rd year of medical school, as she saw her niece and nephew growing up, she chose to be in Pediatric specialty. She completed a pediatric training in the Philippines, build a private practice there and completed her certificate US examination requirements before moving to USA in 1993. She was accepted right away at Bronx Lebanon Pediatric internship program in New York two months after migrating to U.S. She is both board certified by the American Board of Pediatrics, The American Board of Obesity Medicine. She is a fellow of American Academy of Pediatrics and a member of the Riverside County Medical Association. Her training in the Philippines gave her a chance to personally treat infectious diseases like meningitis, tuberculosis, measles, polio, tetanus, mumps, rabies, debilitating influenza, dengue fever and care of premature babies where no ventilator are available. Upon completion of residency at Loma Linda Children's Hospital, she worked for a migrant farm workers clinic in Central California where she had a rewarding experience treating undeserved patients. She has been doing private practice in Corona since 2000 with a mission of "Extra Mile Philosophy", serving patients regardless of their socioeconomic status. We take good care of our patients and give a good explanation of their diagnosis and treatment plans. She lives in Corona with her family, enjoys the community and more than once bump into her patients while shopping, attending church, school or sports activities. To de-stress her life, she does weekend antiquing at estate sales, mindless cleaning, gardening or cooking at home. She advocates for a healthy lifestyle by eating mindfully and doing enjoyable physical activities consistently. We encourage you to visit our website."

I would NOT recommend Dr. Banzuela! It is important to share our experience with her to warn other parents when she seems to have decent reviews. We took my one year old here today for his one year immunizations (first time with her) and the nurse was unsure of whether to undress him to get his weight. Dr. Banzuela acted like she'd rather be anywhere else. She was very short with us and blew an extremely loud whistle in my sons face that had my ears ringing in order to "calm" my son.
We appreciate your feedback and your comment will help us improve our service to all of our future encounters with our patients. We understand that children may be scared when seeing doctors, and we try to use sounds or visual toys to distract their fears. Thank you again for your review.
