Dr. Maria Turizo, MD

Pediatrician

Professional statement

** If you are an existing patient of Dr. Turizo, the practice prefers you call the office to schedule your appointment.** Dr. Maria C. Turizo is a board certified general pediatrician who strives to ensure high-quality medical care for her patients. She has been caring for patients as a general practitioner for the past 14 years, and for the last five years, as a pediatrician, she has focused on treating children, adolescents and young adults. During the past five years, she has been caring for patients while working in fast paced private practices in northern New Jersey. It has always been Dr. Turizo’s desire to guide and help families and their children during their most difficult times- when behavioral and physical problems arise. With the goal to have a more personal one on one relationship with all her patients and to provide each child and parent with the time they need and deserve, Dr. Turizo decided to open her own pediatric practice, INTEGRAL CARE PEDIATRICS. Observing a child go through the discomforts of sickness is one of the worst experiences for a caregiver and Integral Care Pediatrics is here to make these moments smoother. Dr. Turizo is committed to helping your children heal and to helping parents cope with associated stress. Being a wife and becoming a mother of two children have only made these feelings of sympathy and compassion for other parents grow stronger. After receiving her medical degree in Colombia, Dr Turizo worked as a general practitioner in the city of Medellin and in tropical rural areas in Colombia where people live under very stringent circumstances and economic difficulties. These experiences greatly informed her work and taught her the importance of preventive medicine and of a healthy environment.

Dr. Taruzo is great doctor, very helpful and takes time to listen to your concerns. The other staff members are also great. But you should plan to spend there more than hour and a half waiting , even with appointment. Becauseof that we are thinking of finding another pediatrician near us.

She is very professional, knowledgeable and very kind . But the waiting time is very long and it's a good thing that it was a weekend . I would use her medical services for my son except that we are abit far from her office. But overall, she's very pleasant

We were not regular patients and they were able to squeeze us in. Dr. Turizo was very patient as our daughter tends to get a little anxious during appointments. The Dr. answered all of our questions and was very thorough. Wedefinitely recommend. Had to wait a bit -- but as I said... we were new patients and there was some paperwork... so nothing too crazy.

This was only my sons 2nd visit with Dr. Turizo & I was extremely impressed. She spent a lot of time listening to his breathing so she could better understand what the issue was. Listening to a 4 year olds lungs& getting them to continually take deep breaths is NOT an easy thing to do! However, she had some tricks up her sleeve that worked really well & was very patient. She gave my son a breathing treatment right then & there in her office, sent us home with a prescription & I started seeing improvement right away. I like her a lot and my son does as well. I'm so happy to have found her!

Very nice child friendly office. Staff is prompt and considerate. I've gone several times and very reasonable wait times. I've never waited more than 15 minutes and its usually less than that. Doctor is very patient, asks a lot of questionsand listens. I never feel rushed. Would definitely recommend Dr. Turizo.

Dr. Turizo is absolutely wonderful; I've been looking for a pediatrician for quite some time now for my seven yr old and I'm glad to say I struck gold! Dr. Turizo came out and personally introduced herself to me while Ifilled out my paperwork, she's extremely informative, and even though this was out first visit she made us feel like she's known my son since birth! Her assistant was extremely professional and friendly as well, not to mention her waiting room is the cutest, very kid friendly.
