Dr. Barbara A Chilmonczyk has the following 3 specialties
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.
- Allergy and Immunology
An allergy & immunology specialist is a physician who is specially trained in matters pertaining to chronic and acute allergies, as well as deficiencies of the immune system. The doctor will determine whether an allergy, which attacks our immune system, is present. They'll also determine the cause, whether it be environmental triggers like trees and pollen, food-borne like peanuts and dairy, the venom of insects like bees, or a medication like penicillin.
In addition to determining the allergen causing an immunological response in a patient, the specialist will treat the symptoms caused by the reaction.

I have to say that Dr. C. was was of the most unkind and uniterested professionals I have ever seen. She told me my son's cough was "all in his head". and dismissed us. My son has reactive airway disorder and was quickly diagnosed by a second doctor who also realized my son needed his tonsils and adenoids out. I do not know if this woman has on/off days or what, but I would never recommend trusting your child to her care. If it can't be diagnosed quickly, she doesn't appear to think it is a real sickness.
Waited over three months to be seen. We had sceduled an appointment due to wanting to identify what was causing our daughter to have an allergic reaction. We had the testing done and the results came back "negative". Within 15 minutes of our appointment, I noticed my daughter's nose start to run. Her runny nose developed into itchy eyes and within an hour her eyes had begun to turn red. By the end of the day her eyes had become extremely red and I gave her some medicine and sent her to bed. When she woke up the following day, I was shocked. Her eyes ere pure red, watery, with a runny nose - classic allergy symptoms intensified 100%. I called Dr. Chilmonczwk's office who had "no idea" what was going on, but was sure it wasn't allegies since she had tested negative. I brought my daughter to her PCP who said it appeared she was having an allergic reaction and to try and wait it out another day. Day two and my TWO year old daughter did not look any better, not even a little. I called the doctors office twice who was adamant the reaction wasn't due to allergies and would not listen to a word I said. I begged the nurses to have the doctor call me back for the escalated concern, but after 4 hours she had still not returned my call. I called my PCP again who graciously referred me to an optometrist. The optomotrist looked at my daughter and said IT WAS THE MOST AGGRAVATED CASE OF ALLERGIES HE HAD EVER SEEN!!!! He put my two year old on steroid eye drops 4x's a day sling with Benadryl. I capers Dr. Chilmonczwk's office again and demanded to speak with her. She finally spoke with me and was very uncaring and condescending. She even had the nerve to suggest that peraps on the way out of her office my daughter came in contact with someone who was in the waiting room that had a rabbit (which she was not tested for) and that may have been what caused the reaction. She took zero responsibility on herself and told me I should go elsewhere for a secon opinion (which I will be doing). If I could attach photos, I would show you on of my daughter that would blow your mind. For a doctor that infected her, did not listen and did not care. I will tell everyone I know not to go there. DO NOT PUT YOUR CHILD'S TRUST IN HER HANDS!!!!!!
