Dr. Ana P Machado has the following 1 specialty
A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

My 2 girls have been patient's of Dr. Machado for over 11 years. She has always been sensitive, thorough and soft spoken. She takes the time to explain in plain terms and answers all your questions. She is very smart and knowledgeable. I will miss her professionalism and opinion once my daughters grow up.
Dr. Machado is very caring and compassionate. We take our own child and our foster children to her. She once met with both of us foster parents and the biological family, plus the DCF worker, and she explained everything about the baby's care--in both English and Spanish. She spent an hour making sure the baby got the best transition back to his bio family. My only caveat: the Danbury office is crowded and always runs late, but the New Fairfield office is very personable and helpful. She is only in the Danbury office on Fridays.
The first time I met Dr. Machado, she was student, teaching the college medical students. The nurse asked me if it was Ok if a student sat in on the appointment. I had no issue with that. However, When this student walked in to the room he didn't have a ID on him, nor did he introduce himself. He had a horrible attitude and he went straight to my daughter and began examining her. He proceeded to check her lungs and heart and then started to take her diaper off. That is when I asked him to stop and get the dr. At that point I was already there 45 mins. It took another 1 hr and 15 mins for Dr. Machado to sashay through the door. When she walked in she said hello to me and asked the student what he found. She wrote it down and didn't check herself. I asked Dr Machado in front of the student, that was it customery to allow a student examine a child? I didn't expect him to do what he did without a dr being present, as well as why she didn't double check him. How could she concure with him when he isn't a doctor?? Then while she had her foot out the door, i asked her if she thought it was right to leave a patient for almost 2 hrs. You are dealing with children, who are on schedules, are you not? Needless to say, this was the last my child saw this office. what a horrible experience.
