Dr. Ira P Woletsky has the following 1 specialty
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.

My daughter has always loved to go to the Doctor and its because of Dr. Woletsky. She loved Dr. Ira from day one. I been very happy with him and this office for 10 years. He has a wonderful bedside manner(very funny). In my opinion he is one of the best. His diagnosis is always right on and he always takes time to explain and listen to us.
I heard wonderful things about this office when I started taking my newborn there. Unfortunately this practice was very disappointing to say the least. I didn't feel I was in good hands or that they cared about me or my newborn baby at all. The doctor was wonderful but I was completely unhappy with the rest of the staff including the medical professionals and the administrative staff. I always felt rushed, they were never accommodating with regard to appointments, they would never return calls and I just felt totally uncared for and uninformed. I would never recommend the practice to anyone.
I Called the office today to see if my 9 month old can be a new patient there and have his routine checkup. The woman was not friendly to begin with. She stated the office would need my sons records especially vaccines (reasonably so) but when I told her he has not had any yet she verbally attacked me questioning why. I told her its my personal preference and that is all. She replied "then this is not the office for you". First of all I understand drs are told to push vaccines but it's not legally forced and every parent has their rights and concerns and this is a topic on the rise as most of you may know. I didn't expect the office to be excited I felt that way as she probably was not educated regarding all the risks involved in vaccines in young children BUT her attitude was uncalled for and I would never recommend anyone to go there just because that ls basic disrespect and disregard of my concerns as a parent. She does not know me my child or the reasons I feel so strongly in this issue. Very unprofessional. I hung up shaking I felt so condemned. Shame on her !!!!
