Dr. Celerina M Liwag 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.

Full Review Rating Breakdown
Two Stars

Unfortunately, I was disappointed by the care my child received from this physician. I had high hopes after moving into the area and being recommended to this practice. This physician gave the impression of being in a hurry, was less than gentle with my child during examination and talked down to me when discussing her "diagnosis". There was, in fact, no diagnosis, just a lot of "she could have..." at which time she whipped out her RX pad and hurriedly scribbled a script. She did not explain how often I would be administering the drugs she prescribed and talked to me in a judgmental and patronizing tone when I asked questions. When I called in a few days later because my daughter was getting worse and asked to see one of the other doctors, the receptionist instead told Dr. Liwag why I was unhappy and proceeded to transfer me to her instead of Dr. Lancellotti like she told me she was doing. Overall we had a very disappointing experience at Baca peds, starting with the unprofessionalism of the office staff and nurses (some of whom loiter behind the desk checking their cell phones) and ending with physicians who could use a refresher in bedside manner and a reminder that children are precious and should be handled with care.
