Cristina Valentín-Rivera, M.D. was born and raised in Puerto Rico. She got her medical degree in the University of Connecticut School of Medicine and is now completing the third year of her psychiatry residency at Broward Health Psychiatry Residency.

Dr. Valentín’s interests include psychotherapy, medical education, and addressing health disparities. Through her involvement in the Latino Medical Student Association, Dr. Valentín focused on healthcare disparities, advocated for medical schools to address the needs of underserved populations, and helped her fellow medical students develop as leaders and advocates for disadvantaged populations. Dr. Valentín hoped to practice residency in a program that would allow her to serve diverse communities and was thus delighted to join Broward Health Psychiatry Residency Program. During residency, Dr. Valentín was awarded the APA Foundation Community Diversity Fellowship, for residents who are committed to serving minority and vulnerable populations.

I was especially impressed with the thoroughness of all aspects of my experience with Ventre Medical. Despite the limitations of personal contact due to the pandemic, I never felt that my care was compromised. The staff was attentive in every way, and my experience with Dr. Caro was also thorough, enjoyable and comforting. Yes, 5 stars

-Don G.

I am always welcomed and treated professionally by all the staff. I want to say that if the staff becomes overwhelmed Dr. Joubert will come out and call me himself. It nice to see that they work as a team Doctors and Staff. It’s a real pleasure to visit this office everyone has a smile and in constant camaraderie thank you this was a great day.
