Maryann Buetti-Sgouros, MD, FAAP
I am married to a doctor and we have 20-year-old twins at NYU and a 12-year-old daughter. I became a pediatrician because I love kids, I love watching them grow up. To help them get through tough times, like getting a shot or having blood drawn, we sing songs together. Basically, I treat my patients the way I would want my own children to be treated.
Educating the parents of my patients is very important to me because I feel the more educated they are, the better parents they are and they will have healthier kids. They love the fact that I know their children, I know what sports they play, I go to their school orchestra concerts, I run into them at the town parade.
I love to travel and I love to cook. If I have patients who are obese or working on their weight, I’ll give them information on ways to modify recipes. (I’m in the process of writing a book about this.) I’m a musician; I used to play piano with the Putnam Symphony, and taught piano in high school and college. I also play the violin.
Every year on Thanksgiving, I work the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade as a balloon handler. I have a ball! My patients come to the parade and look for me — I tell them what float I’m working. I’ve done Buzz Lightyear, Spiderman, SpongeBob and an artistic balloon by Keith Haring.
