Specialties

Dr. Elissa B Gittes has the following 3 specialties

  • Pediatric Adolescent Medicine
  • 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.

When you really need a doctors help - very disappointing !!

My daughter was going through puberty and had very painful periods. After many attempts through her pediatrician with no improvement, we were referred to Dr. Gittes. Not only did we have to wait almost 4 weeks to get an appointment with her (even though they knew she was missing school) when we finally did get the appointment, she was COLD, Unresponsive and worried about how we were going to pay! I left and never looked back. I would never recommend this women.
