Specialties

Dr. Carl M Reed has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatric Cardiology

    Pediatric cardiologists are pediatricians with additional, specialized, training in the heart health of your children. When infants are born with congenital heart disease or abnormal hearts, pediatric cardiologists get involved as soon as possible — sometimes before the child is even born.
    Through specific testing, they can diagnose the problem and care for the child throughout their treatment, which could range from medication to surgery and transplants. Other heart conditions they treat include arrhythmias, heart murmurs, holes in the heart and viral infections that affect blood flow.

  • 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.

Unhappy Patient

Dr. Reed is an undeserving arrogant incompetent doctor (using the term loosely). He made a correct diagnosis, but when his recommended treatment failed, he called my daughter non-compliant. He told her to increase fluids. She did exactly what she was told to do and even documented the fluid increase. When we returned, he accused her of lying about the fluid increase and said to follow through next time. Next appointment same thing however we'd had enough of his arrogant nonsense. We went to another doctor, Dr. Eason, who performed a test that Dr. Reed refused to perform (recommended by another specialist) and from this, an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan is being established. I would recommend avoiding this doctor at all costs.

Two Stars

The front desk help was AWFUL. Very rude and inappropriately loud when discussing private patient matters. If I have to drive to Tampa for a pediatric heart doctor I will. Doctor spent less than 5 minutes in the room.

Very impressed

We were visiting the US and our 5 year old daughter was diagnosed with a heart murmur. Dr Reed saw us the same day (depite him being on vacation!). He was excellent, very informative and was wonderful with our daughter.
