Specialties

Dr. Douglas S Josephson 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.

Not what my child needs

I think Dr. Josephson would be a great wellness doctor for a child with no developmental issues. However, every time I brought up concerns about development, he would say "wait & see" or "he's fine just concentrating on other areas of development" when my son failed to develop language. I felt like he gave me a false sense of wellness for my child since he brushed off my concerns. He never once mentioned Early Intervention programs that are funded by the state. I found out about EI through a friend. Fast forward to his 3 year appt, Dr. J was suddenly concerned and sent us to a dev. ped. My son was diagnosed with mild ASD. I felt like he had concerns a little too late, and I feel valuable time was lost with my son since I found out about EI a few months before my son turned 3. I also feel like Dr. J wasn't on top of the latest research with ASD. Given the hyperactivity my son demonstrated at every office visit combined with my dev. concerns, I think Dr. J should have suggested a diet change (GF/CF) since 90% of ASD/ADHD kids improve on the diet. I feel there were enough red flags for him to proceed treating my son as if he had a neurological disorder. I understand he's busy, but he should really treat his client's concerns better. I really liked that they have plenty of doctors and nurse practitioners as back-up support for when the pediatrician is sick or unavailable. I really liked the professional look of their website. I really liked that their practice was close to my house. But given Dr. J's lack of knowledge on a disorder that is reaching epidemic proportions, I will be switching pediatricians.
