Dr. Clifford A Mevs has the following 1 specialty
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.

When my now 11 year old daughter was a year and a half I changed from my childhood pediatrician, who I came to realize was an idiot, to Pediatric Healthcare. I initially thought I wouldn't like seeing different doctors. I couldn't have been more wrong. Dr. Mevs, Dr. Lemma and Dr. Diauto are all amazing and I do not prefer one over the other. Depending on which Dr. I see I get different insights but always a mouthful of knowledge. I have never second guessed anything they have told me throughout the past 10 years. Their staff is friendly, caring and their office is set up with the two separate rooms for sick and well (amazing), as well as having set hours for newborns only (also amazing!). They know their kids and I trust them 1000 percent. I now also have a 2 year old son who was recently diagnosed with ASD and though I now live in NJ 40 minutes away on a good staten island traffic day I tried to take them to a dr. once here and realized I could never leave them. I will sit in the traffic and make the drive. You don't find doctors like this anywhere. I've been with them 10 years and I will be with them another 16 years.
