Dr. Alejandro Gomez has the following 1 specialty
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.

Friends recommended I take my oldest son to Dr. Gomez. He is 15 and does not want to go to his female pediatrician. I completely understand that. When I called to make an appointment Dr. Gomez's office asked if I had other children. I was honest and told her I have 2 more boys and a girl. She asked if I would be transferring all of my children to Gomez's office. I replied that probably the next oldest boy but the youngest two would stay with their current pediatrician whom they love and who has dealt with their respiratory issues since they were babies. I was told Gomez doesn't take any new patients over the age of 10. So why even bother asking me about the others if they weren't going to take my oldest? So annoying. Maybe if we had a good experience with Dr. Gomez I would transfer my other children over but since she won't even allow us to see Dr. Gomez that is not possible. Wow. Pretty crummy practice you have there. Dr. Gomez I wonder if you know about your rude staff?
We love Dr. Gomez! I found him years ago while he was in practice with another Dr. (after having so many problems with the pediatrician group we were with within the first couple months of my son's life). My son was a sickly child and Dr. Gomez always had the right answers and was always there for us. A year later, the practice stopped taking insurance and we had to leave. We went through 4 pediatricians and still weren't happy. Upon taking my son to the ENT a bit over a yr ago, I saw Dr. Gomez's name on a door and then bumped into his nurse from the old practice, she confirmed that he had opened his own practice. I went in a filled out paperwork immediately! I have seen him a few times with both my son and daughter and have had to call him at night more then once, he is always there for us. I highly recommend him!!
