Q & A with Dr. Daniel Coelho
How did you get into pediatrics?
The simple answer to this complex question is that I’ve always wanted to use my scientific skill set in a career where I would be working with people and children.
Where did you grow up?
I was born in Brazil, and then I moved to Danbury, CT at a young age. Throughout my childhood, I pretty much went back and forth between Brazil and Connecticut.
Where do you live?
I live in Fort Greene, Brooklyn.
What do you enjoy most about working in your neighborhood office?
I enjoy the continuity in care and how reliable the parents are. I feel like I can give them instructions and trust that they will comply and follow-up if things begin to escalate.
What keeps you motivated?
Almond milk cappuccinos.
What do you do for fun?
If I’m not re-watching another season of GoT, you can find me lifting weights, Crossfitting, or dancing salsa.
