Dr. Bernard Lau has the following 1 specialty
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.

This doctor was very rude, he has horrible bedside manner, he does not know how to deal with human beings. During my visit he was rude to me, his office staff, and other patients. He seemed very disinterested in what I was saying as a patient, was more interested to get in and get out of the room as soon as possible.
Waited over 2 hours to see this doctor. Saw him leave the room next to ours then go to the doctor lounge. Heard him talk for 20 plus minutes to another doctor about CARS. I went to the front desk twice to let them know I could hear him and that our appointment was 2 hours ago. He was VERY RUDE and HAD A BAD ATTITUDE. Then we he finally decided to see us he said we needed to see a specialist. I thought he was a doctor. I would not recommend this doctor to anyone. I would give zero starts if I could.
I happen to think Dr. Lau is one of the best pediatricians I have taken my daughter to. He has a quirky sense of humor which I thoroughly enjoy because I feel like I am talking to a regular person, not a Dr. who feels or acts like they are "holier-than-thou". He has always spent a decent amount of time with us at appointments and never made us feel rushed even though I know a pediatrics office can get crazy - especially a large one like Stony Brook.
Ok so his bedside manner is terrible he speaks down to parents and actually made me feel like i was an idiot. He misdiagnosed my son and sent us home. my motherly instincts kicked in and i went to er and we were admitted for 3 days!! He gives long winded answers to questions not giving a straight answer!
