She recently completed a patient engagement app, Patient Whiz, for iPhone and iPad. This revolutionary health empowerment tool is also available on a credit card size USB flash drive to enable people to keep a vital copy of their health records (including EKGs, test reports, etc.) with them at ALL times.
Author of two consumer health books, Dr. Maria has an extensive background in educating the public, including serving as president of a local American Heart Association branch, conducting numerous community health workshops, and acting as a spokesperson for a breast cancer awareness campaign.
Her strength lies in her ability to communicate complex medical topics in language that anyone can understand. She launched an online ´patient school´ to provide visitors with a tremendous base of knowledge in one site. The Private School section provides practical exercises and effective tools to empower her visitors to become savvy health care consumers while they save time and money.
Dr. Maria is a Christian physician who loves helping people. She enjoys tennis, sewing, and working on do-it-yourself jobs around the home (though her husband is not quite as enthusiastic about this particular hobby as she is).
