She then completed her family practice residency at the Christ Hospital in 2000. Dr. Pineda has taught medical Spanish and was family practice director for a federally funded clinic's Bayonne location.   As a testament to the exceptional quality of medical care that she provides to her patients, Dr. Pineda has been awarded the coveted “Patient Choice Award” in 2010, 2011, and 2012. Further, in 2012, she also won the prestigious “Compassionate Doctor Recognition Award.” As a strong proponent for Preventative Medicine, she believes that “preventative testing, good dietary habits, exercise, and a positive mental attitude” are vital in prevention medicine. Her patient philosophy compliments this as she explains, “Listening to patients is the key to finding the true causes of most medical problems patients present with and by working together, we usually arrive at a treatment plan that is successful in most chronic conditions.  My goal is to make the patient have control over their different conditions rather than the other way around.”
