Specialties

Dr. Jana R Wells has the following 2 specialties

  • Adolescent Medicine

    Adolescent specialists are doctors who have advanced training in the health issues that adolescents face. These physicians deal with issues like the onset of puberty, reproductive health, eating disorders, irregular periods, mood changes, drugs and pressures from home and school. For girls entering adulthood, adolescent specialists can act as both pediatrician and gynecologist, so they only have to see one doctor for all their needs.

  • 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 was referred to Dr. Wells by an ER doctor. She really cares about my children; she takes time to answer all of my questions and to address any issues I bring up; she is very knowledgable and was able to make a diagnosis that my previous pediatrician missed.

Great Physician

Both of my daughters have been with Dr Wells for nearly 10 years. Although sometimes I get frustrated with the staff, it is always worth it when my girls see Dr. Wells. She is so amazing with my daughters. She is thorough, caring, and talks to them directly, and really listens. She clearly explains things to them. She takes the time to follow up, and to not dismiss anything that a parent brings to her attention. We love Dr. Wells.

Too Busy!!!!

I've heard wonderful things about this doctor, however, it's IMPOSSIBLE to make an appointment with her. I changed MDs immediately!!!! Her office staff is too busy, they keep you on hold forever, and you can't get an appointment for at least 1 month when you call. FORGET IT! Very frustrating.
