Dr. Cary M Qualia has the following 2 specialties
- Pediatric Gastroenterology
Pediatric gastroenterologists can treat a variety of diseases and conditions in infants and children related to their liver, pancreas or intestines. If your child has severe or recurrent abdominal pain, constipation or diarrhea, a pediatric gastroenterologist can help you get to the bottom of it. They can also help identify the many possible causes of failure to thrive in infants.
Other common conditions they treat include Crohn's Disease, inflammatory bowel disease, liver disease, short gut syndrome and hepatitis C, as well as nutritional disorders like celiac disease and lactose intolerance. In order to diagnose and treat your child’s condition, gastroenterologists can perform colonoscopies and other diagnostic testing before deciding on the best treatment plan.
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.

Dr Qualia was very nice. He took the time to answer all of our questions and was very helpful and encouraging. He started testing on my son in a very thoughtful approach, explaining all the reasons, what he was looking for etc. then explained what the protocol would be based on those tests. We left feeling like help was on the way after the first visit! Sadly you just don't see this in every Doctors office!
Hard to get an appointment but when you see him he is never rushed. Sits down and listens carefully to what you say and is very empathetic. Even when a diagnosis was hard to determine, he laid out all the scenarios and made us feel that my son's care was totally under control. He performed a colonoscopy on my son and came out and spent an enormous amount of time discussing every last detail. I am very impressed with him and would highly recommend him
