Specialties

Dr. Amy B Criego has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatric Endocrinology

    Endocrinologists treat disorders related to our glands and the hormones they produce. Because hormones play a key role in the growth and development of children, these conditions often pose different threats to children than they do adults. That’s where a pediatric endocrinologist comes in.
    They can diagnose and treat hormonal disorders such as abnormal thyroid function, growth complications and early or delayed puberty. Ambiguous genitals as well as ovarian and testicular dysfunction are also part of their expertise. Childhood obesity, diabetes and problems with low blood sugar also tie back to hormone function and may require consulting with a pediatric endocrinologist.

  • Pediatrics

    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.

Experiences with doctor

My child has had Dr. Criego since diagnosis of T1 diabetes about 7 years ago. She has always been great at getting to the point and working to do what is best for my child. I am very thankful that my child has a peds endo that understands what it is like to have T1.

Not very good

Dr. Criego's staff is amazing but she is not. I had almost no wait when it came to the check in or nurses doing their work. I had to wait 20 minutes after the nurse left the exam room for Dr. Criego. She then only spent about 5 minutes in the room and didn't seem to really care about my health even though it was my first time seeing her.
