Teen Bit by Rattlesnake Is Saved at Scripps La Jolla

The North County Times recently ran an article about Dorian Guerrazzi, a teen who was treated at Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla for a rattlesnake bite. Dr. Sean Deitch, an emergency department physician at Scripps La Jolla worked quickly to save the teen’s life. According to Dorian’s father, “the team at Scripps La Jolla moved faster than the snake that bit him.”


The article "Rattlesnake season arrives early for Del Mar teen" is not available at this time.
