Dr. Alan A Salem has the following 2 specialties
A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.
- Adolescent Medicine
Adolescent specialists are doctors who have advanced training in the health issues that adolescents face. These physicians deal with issues like the onset of puberty, reproductive health, eating disorders, irregular periods, mood changes, drugs and pressures from home and school. For girls entering adulthood, adolescent specialists can act as both pediatrician and gynecologist, so they only have to see one doctor for all their needs.

We have been patients of Dr. Salem for almost 5 years. We have three children (4 1/2, 3, and 2mos). We first met Dr. Salem when I was pregnant with my first. He was recommended to me by my obstetrician. I had met with several other pediatricians, and both my husband and I immediately liked Dr. Salem. He was kind and did not rush us and listened to our concerns and feelings about the care of our child. Over the past few years I have been to his office countless times. I can not say enough about the care that my family has received. We are always given appointments immediately, we are seen promptly, and the doctors always listen to our concerns and explain what is going on. Dr. Salem has been amazing with my children and has provided us with the best possible care. Having three children, we are in that office quite often and I always leave there feeling like my children are well cared for and are being treated appropriately. One of the most important things to me is that a doctor listens to my concerns and input regarding my children, and Dr. Salem always does. The other doctors in the practice are also wonderful and the nurses are always sweet and kind to us. I highly recommend Dr. Salem!
