About Us


If your children are long time patients with us, you already know what makes Bravo Pediatrics unique.

Training. Both Dr. Bravo and Dr. Szytel trained at top-notch institutions, and are Board Certified by the American Board of Pediatrics. Whether the reason for your visit is simple or complex, we bring that training into the room when we see your child. We follow the American Academy of Pediatrics guidelines for care.

Small, intimate practice. We are a small office, and intend to stay that way. We pride ourselves on our relationships with the patients and families in our practice.

Resources. We are on staff at Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center, which boasts the area’s only Inpatient Pediatrics and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Though we treat a variety of conditions in our office, we can call on the expertise of regional specialists as needed.

Availability. We maintain same-day availability for urgent visits, and will help you to understand whether and when your child should be seen. For after-hours needs, we have a telephone triage system, with a pediatrician on-call as needed, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

RN phone advice. When you call for appointments and advice, we have a highly experienced registered nurse answering your calls. Because of our open office layout, Dr. Bravo and Dr. Szytel are easily accessible should further questions arise.

Spanish speaking. Dr. Bravo and Dr. Szytel speak Spanish, as do members of our office staff. We enjoy the diversity of our patients and their families.

Community support. We know that living in San Luis Obispo county is a privilege, and we advocate for the children in our community. We support the Children’s Health Initiative, First Five Commission, Partnership for the Children, Women’s Shelter Program, Family Care Network, and the San Luis Obispo County Medical Association.
