Specialties

Dr. Brian D Patz has the following 1 specialty

  • 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.

excellent doctor

very friendly and helpful. Great at putting kids (and parents) at ease. He has been our pediatrician for almost eleven years. Also, he has a great sense of humor, which is important with all of the craziness of parenting!

Great pediatrician

I highly recommend Dr. Patz. I've been bringing my 3 kids to him for 10 years. He has explained things to us other doctors haven't and seen us through alot in 10 years. It's easy to get in with a sick kid on a same day appointment. Also, wait times are often minimal. The whole staff at HPA is wonderful.

Best Ever!

We love Dr. Patz! He has been our peditrician since 2005 when my first child was born. He is kind and attentive. My kids love going to see him. We are having to change doctors because we have choose not to vaccinate and his office can not allow us to stay with out vaccines. It makes me sad to leave but we do what we have to do. I would highly reccomend Dr. Patz.

Let it run its own course

Dr. Brian Patz does not like to give out prescribtions. As matter of fact, Dr. Brian Pate will give your kid test but not the right test. Dr. Brian Patz's favor phrase is "let it run its own course." Well, when you go in to see him, just write a check to Dr. Brian Patz and leave because Dr. Brian Patz will let your kid(s) run its course then your kid will end up in the ER with full bloom of sickness during the weekend which happened to us three times.

Prescription happy

In my opinion he prescribes drugs without showing me the test results of his diagnoses. Why can't I see the test results to lead to the diagnoses and treatment? I want them in writing and signed.

Doctor's Response

This post seems very bizarre. I have never knowingly withheld test results from a patient/parent. I am always happy to explain test results and give copies of them if desired. I am not sure why someone would want me to sign a test result anyway.
