Integrative Pediatrics and Medicine is honored to have a pediatric veteran and much sought after back office lead Maria Mendoza join our family. She has worked in the Pediatric field for almost 20 years, spending the last half a decade at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles Pediatric Clinic.
Maria was born in Nicaragua and moved to Los Angeles, California at a young age. She became a Medical Assistant in 2003 and has worked in the Pediatric field since. She has worked in the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles General Pediatric Department since 2013 and has taken care of just about every medical condition imaginable.
She has also managed the front and back office for several private practice and hospital clinics across Los Angeles over the past 20 years. She is proficient in lab testing, phlebotomy, vital sign collection, medical administration, billing, human resources, electronic medical records and so much more!
Her number 1 passion is her three children ages 15, 12 and 5. Some of their favorite spots around Los Angeles include the Korean Peace Bell, White Point Beach in San Pedro, and Redondo Beach, CA. She enjoys going to the park with the kiddos and hiking in Griffith Park. Another guilty pleasure for her family is Boba Loca. It’s her favorite spot to have a refreshing drink or crushed ice with fruit.
