Dr. Issam I Albanna 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.

If I could give the doctor zero stars I would. WARNING!! Stay away from this physician!! It was a nightmare dealing with this doctor and his office. They cancel appointments on us twice in a row, causing our newborn to behind in her shots and check-ups. The front desk person (Rhonda) is one of the rudest people I have ever encountered. From day one of dealing with the doctor's office she would always give us attitude. We were having problems with our insurance company in adding our newborn. Our insurance company had an error in their system where they were inputting our daughter's information wrong causing her to show as inactive. When in reality we had insurance from the time she was born. The doctorâs office gave us problems every time we had an appointment even though they checked our insurance information the day before our appointment, but would never mention the problem to us when they called to confirm the appointment. Instead they would wait until we arrived at the office, and hassle us. What really caused us to dislike this doctor and his office, we made an appointment for our daughter to get her shots so she can be put into daycare the following Monday. When we arrived to the doctorâs office they once again hassle us about our insurance. We called and verified with our insurance company that there was an error on their part and they are fixing the issue. When I explain the situation to the front desk person (Rhonda) she refused to listen to me or call the insurance company to verify that our daughter is in fact covered. Instead she gets the doctor (Albanna) he in other terms "got in my face" telling me he wrote off 3 visits already and I should be charged $240 for his services and he refuses to see our baby. I told him repeatedly I have insurance for her they can call to verify; he instead yelled at me in front of the entire waiting room "You don't have insurance!" After this instance I told him I will go to another doctor. We made an appointment with another doctor, who verified with our insurance company that our daughter is covered.
