Dr. Toma later completed a combined internal medicine and pediatric residency at Loyola University Medical Center.
Dr. Toma’s passion for helping children started at a very young age. In her own words, “I have always loved children and spent many hours babysitting in high school. So, in medical school it was natural that I loved pediatrics!”. Her clinical philosophy is based upon connecting with families and guiding them, as their children develop into their own personalities. She has a passion for life and a love of caring for others.
In her spare time, Dr. Toma loves being together and traveling with her husband and daughter. She can’t get enough of Disney and has a weakness for doughnuts. She also enjoys cooking, baking, and photography.
