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.

Misdiagnosed my Child twice
Self-verified patient of Dr. Alexander J Asch - Posted on October 25th, 2018
Dr. Asch is extremely rude, arrogant talks down to parents and worst of all misdiagnosed my child, which led to an undiagnosed strep infection for 6 months. He insisted my son did not have a strep infection. But guess what, he was 100% wrong. One simple blood test was all it would have taken. This led to my child developing the autoimmune disease PANDA, severe anxiety and depression. My child has required 2 inpatient hospital stays at mental health facilities and has attempted suicide once. Please, Please stay away from this incompetent physician at all costs. Nothing is more important than your childs health. Also misdiagnosed a wrist fracture that my son sustained. Again he insisted that it was not broken and did not order an Xray. After a week of my son's pain getting worse, he did order an Xray and guess what. He did have a fracture. fortunately he recovered from this fully with no long term effects. Unfortunately now nearly 2 years out from bringing my son 4 times to Dr. Asch in a 2 week period, he still is suffering from severe anxiety and depression due to his undiagnosed strep infection

Not all doctors are good! Dr. Asch, fortunately, is one of the best. His diagnoses are quick and accurate, and my children have had quite a range of illnesses. He gets right down to business, and that is what I want. After an experience with a pedi who missed some pretty obvious illnesses, I want someone who "nails it". Dr. Asch is that doctor. I don't need verbal reassurance and chit chat time with him. (And I am a chatterbug.) You won't get that. But we therefore rarely have to wait more than 5 or 10 minutes to see him. I have heard other moms complain of his bedside manner. However, if you pay close attention, you'll catch his quiet, wry sense of humor. Most importantly, your children will be in great care.
