Specialties

Dr. Brian S Skrainka has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatric Emergency Medicine

    If your child ever becomes unstable and you rush to the hospital, a pediatric emergency medicine specialist will work to quickly diagnose the condition, start treatment and then continue to monitor symptoms until he/she is stable again. They are pediatricians specifically trained to handle medical emergencies and make quick decisions to treat infants and children.
    They have experience treating allergic reactions, poisonings, trauma injuries from accidents and complications that arise from any chronic illnesses, congenital conditions, asthma or diabetes. They can also diagnose the source of severe symptoms like fever, seizures and trouble breathing to get parents more answers.

  • 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.

He didn't seem to care what I had to say about anything...just seemed to want to get in and get out. I was told he's a very smart man which I can believe but his people skills need help.

Most unethical and unprofessional

I have never seen or heard of a worse medical professional in my entire life. I brought severely dehydrated babies to the emergency care at mercy and was unfortunate to be seen by Dr. Skrainka after 4 hours of waiting. he had us put in a room and billed $2000 after five hours of waiting in the Er to be told by him that he will not give any medical assistance. When we begged him to give IV line to the babies he started ridiculing and shouting and said bring them back when they have broken bones, and i will treat them. I have yet to meet a more pompous idiot in my entire life. The state should take his license away, he should not even be allowed to see dogs than human babies.
