Specialties

Dr. Clifford M Galanis has the following 3 specialties

  • Pediatric Adolescent Medicine
  • Adolescent Medicine

    Adolescent specialists are doctors who have advanced training in the health issues that adolescents face. These physicians deal with issues like the onset of puberty, reproductive health, eating disorders, irregular periods, mood changes, drugs and pressures from home and school. For girls entering adulthood, adolescent specialists can act as both pediatrician and gynecologist, so they only have to see one doctor for all their needs.

  • 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.

Best Doc & Staff - EVER!!!

My children have been seeing "Dr. G" for over 18 years. My oldest daughter, now 28, still thinks of him as her doctor...and the doctor and office staff still ask of her as well! It's never like a "dreaded trip to the doctor" it's always been like going to visit a wise friend! This is the type of doctor (and AMAZING staff) one always hopes exists, but never thinks does. They are the best! We still travel all the way from Damascus to see them.

The Best

I've been taking my kids to Dr. cliff for over 10 years and we just love him and Kendra. The make you feel like your family. I remember when we 1st started going to Dr Cliff and had an emergency and called his office after hours, he answers because the calls were transferred to him. Most offices just have a recording to call during business hours or to go to the hospital. You can call and get help over the phone if you need. Dr Cliff/ Kendra and his staff are a amazing......
