Specialties

Dr. Bruce Smith has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine

    The main responsibility of a perinatologists, also known as a maternal-fetal medicine specialist, is to treat, monitor and assist pregnant mothers through high-risk pregnancies. This includes high blood pressure, early labor and bleeding. They’re also able to identify birth defects and then recommend necessary treatments to support your baby before he/she is born.
    Other reasons you may need to see a perinatologist during your pregnancy include diabetes, problems with a previous pregnancy or carrying twins. Having completed OB-GYN training, they’re experts on the female reproductive system with additional specialized training in un-routine pregnancies. So, whether you know you’re at risk going into your pregnancy or problems arise unexpectedly, perinatologists can help you.

worst experience!

worst kaiser experience out of 3 kaiser visits with different doctors! the whole appointment took 2 hours just for a quick check up and 1 immunization shot for my baby!!! Long wait by the reception area-- Doctor doesn't care, had us wait in the room for too long and wasn't too gentle with my daughter! I understand Nurse trying to do their job but had us wait for too long and nobody apologized for anything! wouldn't go back to this location!

Dr. Smith, acts like he cares and he only wants to get out as soon as possible.I over heard him say "I'm just doing my time." He isn't accountable for actions and blames others for problems he brought on himself.
