Specialties

Dr. Jack Needleman 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.

hes OK

I went to see him a week after I was discharged from the hospital suffering from a concussion. The hospital told me to follow up with a family doctor so I went and saw him. My mother asked if there was any neurologist I could see. He gave a list that covered our insurance. He said he thought it wasn't necessary to see one. Its been TWO YEARS and still have brain injury/damage. I'd like to see what he would say about that.

Superb doctor, especially if you are not always eager to be sent home with a bunch of drugs without reason. He has been my child's pediatrician for 3 years now and we love him. Very gentle with the child- its a treat to watch him handle a newborn. As a medical writer engaged in reading and writing for and with physicians, I find Dr Needleman to be outright " the best in the business".

I feel Dr. Needleman is very honest and up front with everything. He is to the point and will tell it like it is. I appreciated that when we met at the Bridgewater office. I was still looking for a pcp for my son and as a 1st time mom I needed guidance and advice. He LISTENED to my questions and comments. He took the time to make me feel comfortable by letting me speak. He wouldn't cut me off and rush to answer my questions before I was finished speaking. I have heard negative comments about Dr. Needleman from other parents saying "he tells me how to take care of my kid" and "Im the mom so I will decide how to take care of my child". And you will because you are the parent and parents will decide for them selves what they want to do. But, a man with so much experience and with children of his own will just tell you what is best for your child in an honest and upfront way. Thank you Dr. Needleman for all your honesty and advice :)
