Read more about Dr. Bochner's career in pediatric medicine and why she joined PAGNY:

“I went into medicine because I was looking for a career where I could have a meaningful impact on my community and come home every day feeling fulfilled. Working in medicine also provides me with the opportunity to continuously build my knowledge base and learn something new every day which is intellectually stimulating. I feel lucky that I get to meet, work with and learn from a diverse interdisciplinary group of individuals who are all doing their part to improve the health of our community.”

Dr. Bochner’s dedication to fostering childhood health exemplifies PAGNY’s mission to deliver exceptional patient-centered care to vulnerable communities in New York City. Thank you, Dr. Bochner, for the care and respect that you show to your patients!
