Specialties

Dr. Galina Gershkovich 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.

I hate this doctor. She is rude and does not take her time with her patients. She handles you roughly and is a terrible pediatrician.

We love her!

Dr Gershkovich has been our pediatrician for the last ten years. As a busy mother, the best part about Dr G's office is the ease of appointments and the minimal wait time. Her staff is also excellent. I am always surprised when I call in with my generic last name and the nurse instantly recognizes my voice and right away knows which kids I am calling about. Dr Gershkovich is a superb diagnostician, and has a personal connection with each patient. Her manner may appear curt, but knowing her as long as we do, I can attest that she truly cares. She is no-nonsense and doesn't waste time, but has taken the extra step and called me after hours to follow up about a sick child many times. I cannot praise her enough.

I am not sure reason this pediatrician received such good reviews. My personal experience is unfriendly staff, unfriendly doctor who did not take time to warm up to a a baby was very rough in handling baby and baby hysterically cried with her the entire time , which he has never done with any therapists that he sees or any other doctors. I also felt like she rushed me out of the office I had to ask her about basic things like sleep, eating , weight height she did not ask me anything about the baby. She would leave our session and go do other things during the visit constantly. I would never recommend this pediatrician to any parent.

Great Pediatrician!

I've used this pediatrician for about 2 years for my daughter. She was absolutely wonderful. I only switched because I moved to a new neighborhood. I only have the best things to say about her. She was able to diagnose everything quickly and correctly and new exactly what to do to correct the problems. Getting an appointment was never a problem. And, of course, she's wonderful with kids. I highly recommend her.
