Dr. Brian B Guarnotta 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 is rude and doesn't care at all. He is constantly questioning the nurses and others doctor decisions which makes me feel like they don't know what they are doing. He got irritated when I ask about my baby test results after I received a two calls from a nurse being concerned. Please don't go to this doctor.
Dr. Guarnotta is a great doctor and we really trust his intellect and care. He brings a holistic and integrative approach to his practice which makes such a difference - everything from how he spends his time with you; the way he really listens to your concerns & answers questions, to how carefully he prescribes treatments. He doesn't just automatically prescribe an antibiotic and shuffle you out of the office - he really researches the symptoms, carefully make his diagnosis, & will work with you to develop treatment plans. If you're unsure of the side effects of certain meds he's willing to take the time to more fully research them. If he doesn't know something -because really how could anyone know everything; most just give an attitude & dismiss you - he tracks down the research & calls you back immediately to discuss. I cannot stress how incredible it is to find a doctor like that. To add to the ease in which you can speak to him, he avoids using esoteric medical jargon and instead talks to you like a "real" person. He was instrumental in helping us get our son's asthma under control - it's one of his areas of expertise and we recommend him to others ESP for asthma related issues. He's an all-around terrific doctor and would highly recommend.
My 4 children are all patients of Dr Guarnottas so I have been to him probably a hundred times and don't have a single complaint. He never rushes you and never makes you feel like any question is stupid. He is very thorough and follows up on any issues. I have never had to wait more than 10 minutes for an appt and unlike some other drs you don't end up in an exam room waiting for him-he comes in minutes after the nurse has left. i would recommend him to anyone looking for a great pediatrician on the south shore!
