Neyssa Marina, MD

  • “I love working with teenagers because I am a teenager at heart.”

I provide patients the best possible care, including cutting-edge technology, while remaining compassionate and taking into account their preferences. I want to make a difference in people's lives. My expertise is in the diagnosis and treatment of sarcoma patients, a high-risk population. In addition to the treatments that make up the core of their care, I also support families through the process and help them understand what's happening every step of the way. My career is filled with memorable moments; each patient is unique and I remember that during our time together. Each of them becomes part of the memories that help me feel fulfilled.
