Dr. Ellen Barrios came to LCHC as a volunteer through her relationship with Drs. Wayne and Gina Detmer. "LCHC is such a special place that I knew after I completed medical school I wanted to come back to work here," she says. Her interest in medicine began in high school where she cared for and assisted young adults with special needs. For Dr. Barrios, "being a pediatrician is about the long-term relationships with patients and families -- helping them through the good and bad times," she shares.
