Specialties

Dr. David R Fernandes 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.

AMAZING DOCTOR
Amazing bedside manners

His compassion is outstanding and he related to the children. He called to see how my daughter was doing with the medication.

Three Stars

The office staff is rude. The old nurse seems pretty inept at giving shots (makes parents hold the child down on a table-how frightening for the child). Doctor is dismissive and brushed off my concerns of allergies as "drool rash" and "eczema"... turns out she has some serious allergies that were confirmed by another doctor. I went here for about seven months and wish I would have left sooner. Never got a follow up after testing for a uti. Office never seemed to be open when I had urgent questions. Doctor is very good with the children though.
