Svetlana Bresnitz, MD, FAAP
Svetlana Bresnitz, MD, FAAP, joined SLVRMC in 2005. She had come to the US from Czechoslovakia in 1995, after graduating from the Komenius University School of Medicine. She was a stay-at-home mom for five years before doing her pediatric training at the University of Kansas Medical Center in Kansas City. She is certified by the American Board of Pediatrics. She enjoys teaching and holds a position of Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. Her comprehensive pediatric practice is a certified patient centered medical home.
Dr. Bresnitz cares that her practice reflects values which are important to parents and patients: provision of the most up-to-date pediatric care, cost effectiveness (an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure), care coordination between primary and subspecialty care, availability for same day appointments, and minimal wait times for preventive appointments. Her focus on prevention cannot be overstated.
Dr. Bresnitz maintains her fund of knowledge and keeps her skills up-to-date by reading relevant pediatric journals monthly, by ongoing study of the American Academy of Pediatrics curriculum, and by comprehensive education and active participation in the rigorous maintenance of the board certification process as prescribed by the American Board of Pediatrics.
Dr. Bresnitz enjoys diversity in her patients and has a special fondness for newborns. She encourages parents and patients, especially teens, to ask a lot of questions.
