Compassion and medicine always go together for this physician

RAQUEL REYES 5Dr. Raquel Reyes – Geneva Community Health

A series of life events led Raquel to study medicine.  She chose a practice that would provide the opportunity to care for a diverse patient population, from young to old, and across socioeconomic backgrounds.  Dr. Reyes understands that, “being a doctor involves more than just meeting a patient’s medical needs, it’s about getting people and their families through the hardest time(s) of their lives and comforting people when they need it most.”

Dr. Reyes graduated from The University of Texas Medical School at Houston and completed a combined Internal Medicine-Pediatrics Residency at the University of Rochester Medical Center, where she received the Hoekelman Award, given to the graduating resident who holds the greatest promise for success as a primary care practitioner.  She enjoys traveling and has had clinical experience in Ghana, Guatemala, Honduras and Uganda. Dr. Reyes enjoys staying busy, learning new skills and challenging herself with new goals.
