Dr. Luciana Borba is originally from Brazil. She knew she wanted to be a doctor during the last couple of years in high school, “I used to volunteer at a community hospital and that brought my passion for medicine. At first I started working with adults, then I became part of a group that organized some activities for the children while they were in the hospital, that was when I decided to do pediatrics!” Dr. Borba earned her Medical Degree from Universidade Federal do Ceara in Brazil. She completed her pediatric residency at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital (formerly known as Miami Children’s Hospital). Her special areas of interest are adolescent medicine and pediatric dermatology. Dr. Borba and her husband have 2 children.
