Dr. Edward T Braye Jr 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.

I thought Dr. Braye was great until there was an insurance mix up and my policy didn't cover care for the first month of my son's life. I carried a significant balance with the office, which was fine and could get paid. My two boys both were severely congested for weeks. Being as young as they were over the counter meds weren't gonna knock any infection out. I went in for care, and Dr. Braye shoved me to the side with an 'over the counter remedy'. I had already been doing so for three weeks, and they were getting worse. He would not give antibiotics. I moved to another pediatrician, which did give the care to knock out infection. Now that I've switched pediatricians, Dr. Braye's office refuses to release my children's records to the new doctor due to an unpaid balance. Though I owe this office money, it is unethical to obtain records and no release them for nonpayment. This process has delayed immunizations and is an absolute frustration. I hope others to not have to go through the frustration this office has brought me.

I was referred by this doctor because I heard he was one of the best. My experience has been less than satisfactory. He never answers my concerns and wouldn't refer my kids out when they continually kept getting sick. Another major problem he has is never calling with results of any labs, xrays, etc. I am highly unhappy with this dr and recommend you take head before seeing him.
