About

Bio

<P>Greetings! </P> <P> </P> <P>My name is Tony GiaQuinta. I am a Vanderbilt University trained pediatrician, but born and raised in Northeast Indiana. I am so glad to be back home in the midwest, where people expect courteous and respectful relationships from each other, and the Colts are our beloved football team! </P> <P> </P> <P>My wife is pregnant with our first child, which is taking up most of our thoughts and emotions at the moment! Our poor dog, Murray, is unfortunately feeling the change. I enjoy hiking, running, and pretty much anything out-doors. </P> <P> </P> <P>Treating children provides me so much joy, motivation, and energy. I promise to be your child's greatest advocate, and look forward to meeting!</P> <P> </P> <P>Please follow me at IndyPedsDoc on twitter for frequent pediatric-related topics and postings. </P>
