Florence Desrosiers, MD, MBA

Adolescent Medicine

On staff since October 2019

" I love working with adolescents because of the many opportunities it gives me to make a difference. The biological development of adolescents and young adults outpaces their psychological maturity. Many of them experience very difficult lives depending on their circumstances. Being able to provide care, and to encourage and guide them during this period of transition is very rewarding. I am also very passionate about educating and mentoring the next generation of doctors and other health professionals. Supporting them in their journey while helping achieving their career goals is vital to our healthcare system."
