Dr. Alvin H Kane has the following 2 specialties
- 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.
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.

Dr. Kane is a rare breed of doctor that truly cares more about medicine and patients than trying to get every last insurance payment through his office. Always just a phone call away, he completely understands the worries of a parent with a sick child. As a new parent, he answers all the questions we have no matter when we have them. That type of care and understanding is hard to find. Dr. Kane and Judy are really great at what they do. New doctors can learn quite a lot from them.
Dr. Kane has been with our family for 2 generations now. Once my pediatrician, now my children's Primary doctor. He is very caring and always has the patients interest at heart. My kids are not fearful of the 'Doctor Visit' which is a statement in itself. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Kane to anyone looking for a great Pediatrician.
Dr Kane is an outstanding doctor with deep roots in the community that you can tell he loves to serve. He was my pediatrician and is now my Kids doctor. He provides outstanding care inside and outside of the office. Always available for a phone call to ease a concerned parent's mind. I don't know how many other doctors are like Dr Kane but there should be more.
