Specialties

Dr. Christina F Piela 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.

Office manager was rude and unprofessional

Been coming here for 10 years, all the Associates in the practice are good doctors but the office manager was rude and disrespectful when asking for a note for school for my asthmatic child. Instead of assisting to me, she began telling me that because her son has asthma and goes to school, that my asthmastic child should go to school. Then proceeded to inform me that my life long asthmatic child needed medication. Who is she to give me medical advice? Why did she think we were there as my child was suffering from an asthma attack? She also told me that we should go to a specialist. How unprofessional to reprimand me in front of other patients (waiting in line to check in) insinuating that I am not medicating my child properly and that is why he is missing school.. So, if you have the time to wait and get doctor's advice from a non qualified person, feel free to choose this office. Unbelievable!!!!!!!!
