Dr. Ruth E Letizia 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.

The Epitome of an Excellent Pediatrician
Self-verified patient of Dr. Ruth E Letizia - Posted on June 27th, 2012
Dr. Letizia is exactly the type of pediatrician that I was looking for to care for my son. She is warm, caring, and thorough!I was impressed by how much time she spent with us at our first appointment- I never felt rushed, and she was happy to answer all of the questions that I had. My son was in a horrible mood at his appointment, and cried through most of it, but Dr. Letizia (along with the rest of the staff at Sonoran Sky Pediatrics)was very patient and kind to him. I am very happy that I found this pediatrician, and I highly recommend her to other families looking for a doctor to care for their kids.
Caring, Observent Doc.

Dr. Letizia is a wonderful physician. She is obviously very passionate about giving her patients the best of care. You can tell she just loves children (and parents) and is very thorough in her exams. I love that she takes the time to carefully exam my children and then spends some time talking with me too. My kids have been seeing her since they were babies and she was a great caregiver to me too as I grew from a new mom to an old pro!

More about Dr. Ruth E Letizia
I graduated from New York Medical College in 1998 and completed my Pediatric residency at Georgetown University Medical Center in 2001. I worked in private practice in Northern Virginia for five years and moved to Arizona in 2006. I opened our practice in November 2008, to help meet the growing need for quality pediatric care in the rapidly expanding east valley, especially for children with special health care needs. I am married, with four beautiful children. My spare time is devoted to being a wife and a mom. We are active in our church, but I love to read novels and cross-stitch when I have a few minutes to myself.
