It's so rewarding helping people make real changes towards a healthy, vibrant life. When I was little, I believed my pediatrician had special powers. He had a gentle soul and always knew a way to make me feel better. At the age of 4, I knew I wanted to be a doctor. Now, as a family doctor, I have the privilege of being a part of people's lives in all the different stages, from newborns just starting out in life, to grandparents wanting to enjoy everything life has to offer. I do enjoy figuring things out like a detective, but my greatest satisfaction comes from making personal connections with people leading them to improved health and happiness. I have worked my entire life to be a doctor and couldn't imagine myself doing anything else. Unfortunately, because of the current medical system, I was becoming burned out and considering quitting medicine all together. It brings me so much joy to see people getting healthy and helping them achieve their goals, but more often I felt I wasn't able to do that because the system didn't let me. With the pressure to see more and more people, do more paperwork and be told how to practice medicine, I was finding it hard to be the kind of doctor I wanted to be and have time for me and my family. Last October, all of that changed. I decided to risk a lot to open my own practice and once again, be the doctor I wanted to be to my patients and do the right thing. Direct Primary Care is a new concept in the area, but the premise is simple. It is about really knowing my patients and being there for them. It brings me great joy knowing that people trust me with their health and that we have developed a relationship to work as a team. Now I am a happy doctor and a happy wife to my wonderful husband, Eric, and mother to my 3 spunky boys, Owen, Emmet and Alton. I am happy to be back in the Hudson Valley and once again be close to family and friends. The Hudson Valley has a lot to offer and am excited for my children to experience it all. For fun I like to participate in triathlons and half marathons. I am currently part of the Sharks Masters Swim team at the Goshen Aquatic Center and hoping to compete in a few events this summer.

Why It Matters: Dr. Vazquez-Bryan's Board Certifications
Board certification should be one of your top considerations when choosing a doctor. Board certification is an official recognition given to doctors who have met specific requirements set by national medical specialty boards in the United States.
Board certification indicates that a doctor is highly qualified in the medical field in which he or she practices. A board-certified doctor is more likely than a non-board-certified doctor to have the most current skills and knowledge about how to treat your medical condition.

What is medical malpractice?
Medical malpractice is issued when negligence by a doctor causes injury to a patient. For example, a doctor may improperly diagnose, treat or medicate outside the standard of medical care. The three types of malpractice are: a settlement, an arbitration award, or a judgment.
If my doctor has malpractice history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If your doctor has a malpractice claim, evaluate the information and determine if the action could potentially impact the quality of care you receive. Claim settlements and arbitration awards may occur for a variety of reasons, which should not necessarily reflect negatively on the doctor's professional competence or conduct. You may want to use this information to start a discussion with the doctor about his or her history and specific ability to provide healthcare for you.
How far back does Healthgrades malpractice history go?
Healthgrades reports details of a doctor’s malpractice history when the doctor has at least one closed medical malpractice claim within the last five years, even if he or she no longer practices in that state.
For which states does Healthgrades collect malpractice history?
Healthgrades collects malpractice information from California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, and West Virginia. If your doctor has a malpractice claim, evaluate the information and determine if the action could potentially impact your quality of care. Sometimes multiple states report the same claim. If a provider practices in a state where data is unavailable, please reach out to your local state legislature to help make this data publicly available.
No sanctions history found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
What is a sanction or disciplinary action?
A sanction, also known as a disciplinary action, is an action taken to punish or restrict a doctor who has demonstrated professional misconduct. Sanctions may be imposed by a state medical board, professional medical licensing organization, or the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
If my doctor has sanction history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a sanction, it does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor-quality doctor. Some sanctions are not related to medical care, and involve a doctor’s finances or administrative activities. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, we recommend that you evaluate the doctor’s sanction information and determine how severe or relevant you think the sanction cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades sanction history go?
Healthgrades reports state and federal sanctions from the previous five years, except when a doctor's license has been revoked or surrendered. Healthgrades displays all actions for doctors whose licenses have been revoked or surrendered.
For which states does Healthgrades collect sanction history?
Healthgrades collects sanction history from all 50 U.S. states. Physicians with a disciplinary action in one state may move to another state where they have a clean record. Since Healthgrades painstakingly compiles disciplinary action information from all 50 states, Healthgrades website will show if a physician has a disciplinary action in more than one state.
0 Board Actions
No board actions found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
What are board actions?
Board actions are non-disciplinary actions imposed upon a doctor based on a complaint investigation. A patient or medical colleague may file a complaint with that state medical board or professional licensing organization, which then investigates the complaint. Board actions are intended to ensure that a doctor is able to perform safe medical and health care tasks.
Types of non-disciplinary actions include an advisory letter, a corrective action agreement, a limitation or restriction on the medical or healthcare tasks a doctor can perform, or a voluntary agreement by the doctor not to practice. A board action can also include a termination of a corrective action agreement or voluntary agreement, which allows the doctor to return to full practice.
If my doctor has a board action, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a board action, it means he or she has had a non-disciplinary action imposed upon him or her. It does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor quality doctor. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, evaluate the doctor's board action information and determine how severe or relevant you think the cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades non-disciplinary board action history go?
