Specialties

Dr. Elizabeth Ferrara has the following 2 specialties

  • Nephrology

    A nephrologist is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions affecting the kidneys or renal system.
    A nephrologist will determine through urine analysis, blood test, X-ray, sonogram, or kidney biopsy how well the kidneys are functioning and will then prescribe a special diet and exercise program, medication or dialysis - a process by which a machine filters the blood when the kidney is no longer capable of doing so.

  • 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.

Awesome availably, great communication

Not only did she make a same day appt after talking with my son's primary physician because of health concerns of my son's kidneys, she also communicated to his primary physician very timely and regularly. She has gone over every aspect of my son's health condition and has made it very clear to me what each step we were taking involved and explained the reasoning behind each test/procedure.I would have no other doctor assisting me with my son's condition. I am very pleased with her practices and have never had an issue with her beside manner/medical practices or care.

Dr. Ferrara treated my son over several years for a rare genetic disease. She was rude, overbearing and arrogant to the point of ignoring other doctor's advice and my own. My son fell into a coma as a direct result of HER orders and needed to be medivaced to a level four tertiary hospital. He was hospitalized for several weeks because of her. We almost lost him. To this day, I feel certain she would never admit any wrong doing. I would travel to a different county before I would let her touch any of my children, ever.
