About

Bio

My name is Pedro Cabrera. I have a specialty in Anesthesiology and a subspecialty in Pain Management. I feel comfortable providing primary care advice since I also work in an Internal Medicine practice in Queens, NY. I am fluent in Spanish. I graduated medical school in 1987 and have been living in the New York Metro Area since then. I am the father of four girls. My wife is also a physician, her field is Internal Medicine and Infectious Disease with a sub-specialty in HIV, AIDS.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
