Lucia Saldana Bio
Dr. Lucia Saldana has been working with Cooper Internal Medicine for the last six years. There, she forms personal relationships with her patients, many of which she considers friends. Saldana considers going above and beyond as part of the job description. She believes that education about the disease process is the first step on the healthy path. Saldana knows first-hand the patience required to make sure patients are well-informed of their condition – patience born of a deep passion to help and to heal.
By taking the time to make sure her patients understand their ailments, Saldana hopes to correct some misconceptions people may Have. She claims some people take their condition for granted: they will say “‘I have diabetes.. give me a pill.’ The treatment for diabetes is not a pill. The first treatment should come from the patient.”
