Specialties

Dr. Elaine S Gutierrez has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

Great pediatrician!

Dr. Gutierrez was our pediatrician for over 15 years. It was sad when my daughters had to move out of the practice and on to a regular physician because of their age. Dr. Guiterrez is an intelligent and caring physician...a rare thing to find. We miss her!

GREAT PEDIATRICIAN!

She's great! She's been great with my little 3 year old. Wait time is almost non-existent, 5-8 min and you're in. She's very very sweet and has always provided great care and detailed examinations. I would recommend her to anyone, especially young children!
