Specialties

Dr. Elaine H Zackai has the following 4 specialties

  • Clinical Genetics (M.D.)
  • Clinical Cytogenetic
  • Medical Genetics

    Geneticists are doctors with expertise in genetic or hereditary disorders. Many of the diseases we get are inherited, or passed on through the genes of our biological parents. These specialists study the biology behind a genetic disorder's origin, the traits that it presents in a patient and its pathway. This allows them to diagnose and treat each illness effectively.

  • 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.

Five Stars

Because we had received our genetics diagnosis in another state, this visit was to follow up and ask questions. Dr. Zackai clearly explained the scientific diagnosis and what it meant for our son medically as well as practically. Bedside manner is very straightforward and scientific, but do not expect much warmth, empathy or compassion. We could tell that, to her, our little boy was a scientific anomaly to be studied.
