Dr. Marisa Quattrone

Pediatrician


Residency: UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh


Q: What is your connection to our mission?

A: Being a pediatrician for over a decade, I have had the opportunity to witness firsthand the amazing strengths as well as the difficult obstacles present in the lives of children with autism and other neurodevelopmental differences.  I have been humbled to learn from them and to be a part of each family’s journey.  I am ready to assist even more families in  reaching their goals!

Q: Why do you love helping children?

A: It is an honor to watch children develop into unique beings with their own interests and talents!  Helping to guide them to a healthy, successful life is very rewarding.

Q: What are your hobbies?

A: I feel most at home in nature.  I love kayaking, paddle boarding and working with flowers, fruits and veggies in my garden!

Q: Who or What inspires you ? 

A: My daughter helps make me a better person every day! She was premature – only 4 lbs. 14 oz. when she was born.  Watching her find so much excitement in everyday life has been very inspirational!

Q: Tell us about your family. Any children? What about pets?

A: I am fortunate to have a large extended family with lots of kids!
