Dr. Allah Haafiz has the following 2 specialties
- Pediatric Gastroenterology
Pediatric gastroenterologists can treat a variety of diseases and conditions in infants and children related to their liver, pancreas or intestines. If your child has severe or recurrent abdominal pain, constipation or diarrhea, a pediatric gastroenterologist can help you get to the bottom of it. They can also help identify the many possible causes of failure to thrive in infants.
Other common conditions they treat include Crohn's Disease, inflammatory bowel disease, liver disease, short gut syndrome and hepatitis C, as well as nutritional disorders like celiac disease and lactose intolerance. In order to diagnose and treat your child’s condition, gastroenterologists can perform colonoscopies and other diagnostic testing before deciding on the best treatment plan.
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.

Very knowledgable in his area of expertise but also quite Condescending. He quizzed me like a child and wanted me to explain what the diagnosis was, then he repeatedly said NO and continued questioning rather than explaining. When he did give me the worse case scenario for my child, he berated me for becoming teary eyed and repeatedly stated that I wasn't listening to him since that upset me (he stated that I shouldn't be upset because the more likely scenario is that it would all turn out ok). I understood there was only a 20% chance my daughter would have to have a liver transplant but that is still a possibility and I could not help becoming teary eyed. During the appointment he ignored the questions I had on several occasions and proceeded to talk over me when I did get a chance to talk. I had to ask the dietitian and the nurses the questions I had because I was unable to share them with doctor Haaffiz.
