Specialties

Dr. Galen Y Chock 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.

Dr. Chock is an exceptional pediatrician. He is well-educated, has decades of experience and is very rational. Dr. Chock was able to identify a problem that my son was having immediately, and help us with the correct course of action. Dr. Chock listens to our children and to our concerns. I feel that our children are in the best hands possible. The staff in Dr. Chocks office are also exceptional! They are pleasant and always try to be accommodating.

I switched my daughter to him because I heard a lot of good things about him from peers. I work in the medical field and he is well educated and works with me to find the cure. His staff is courteous and caring. They always make time to see my child. I appreciate the job that he and his staff do.

Dissatisfied, changed to another pediatrician

Been with Dr Chock for a long time with my child (since birth). Generally a good pediatrician but all business and not much tolerance for parents with ideas of their own. Had some problems with child having attacks of not being able to breathe too well, heart racing, and mucous in his throat. After 2 or 3 of these episodes, I documented what he ate, what he did, when the attacks happened, etc. for a few weeks. When we visited Dr Chock, I explained my child's symptoms and told him that I had a journal and wanted to point out a few things that might indicate acid reflux or GERD. He kind of blew me off and said that it can't be acid reflux/GERD and said that my child had Precordial Catch Syndrome. When I got home, I looked PCS up and knew right away that this is not what my child had. Got a 2nd opinion (pediatrician actually took the time to read the journal), got referred to a pediatric gastroenterologist who confirmed that my child had acid reflux/GERD. Dr Chock might be too busy to entertain the idea of listening to parents that are halfway intelligent and who want some say in their child's health care.
