About Julieta Calmon

About

I moved to the United States from Brazil in 1984 after living there most of my life. I was an intern/resident in internal medicine at the former Medical College of Pa now Drexel University College of Medicine.I completed my infectious disease fellowship there as well. Following my training, I practiced infectious disease medicine at Brandywine Hospital and Crozer Chester Medical Center until 1997.

After taking time off to raise my children and retiring from practicing as a physician, I wanted to work in a different capacity, so I decided to utilize my knowledge to become a patient advocate.

Outside of work, I volunteer as a member of the Chester County Medical Reserve Corps. I am also a committee member of Boy Scout Troop 21, a board member of Delaware Valley Daylily Society, and a co-chair of Hershey Mill Estates's Ponds and Grounds committee.

Testimonials

"

Julieta Calmon has been a wonderful adviser and mentor for our family, helping us to make some big decisions regarding the right drug course for our son. Julieta provided some very good advice and suggestions that helped us to get some real answers which we were struggling to get, from our doctors. Her in depth medical knowledge is immediately apparent and her ability to weed through the information and find the facts was very impressive and helpful. Julieta kept things very professional and never gave us medical advice. She helped us to find the answers that we needed so that we could make the right choices. We highly recommend Julieta as a patient advocate.
