Dr. Janis I Schaeffer has the following 2 specialties
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.
- Pediatric Pulmonology
A pediatric pulmonologist is the go-to resource for children who need treatment for any kind of breathing issue or lung disease. If your child coughs up blood, has a cough that isn’t going away, or displays other symptoms such as trouble breathing, chest pain or wheezing, you can ask your doctor to refer you to a pediatric pulmonologist.
Common conditions and diseases they treat range from noisy breathing, asthma and chronic coughs to lung disease, apnea and cystic fibrosis. They can also diagnose and treat cases of pneumonia in children and prescribe any kind of respiratory medication or equipment your child might need.
- Chronic Bronchitis

If I could give 0 stars I would. Incredibly rude staff. When they called to confirm the night before they told us to come to the appointment 20 minutes early. We showed up 30 minutes early because we are always prompt and then was made to wait for over an hour with two young children in the waiting room. When we asked what was going on, they were rude and said the doctor was late. Staff were inpatient and short with my 4 year old. Can't believe this is a pediatric office the way they spoke to my son. For the follow up appointment I gave them a courtesy phone call to tell them that I had an emergency and would need to be 15 minutes late. When I got there I was told rudely "I don't know when the dr will be able to see you but you can go back and wait in the exam room." I said if it was going to be long, I would reschedule. She brought me back and the dr came in within 10 minutes. Why be so rude then??! Will never go back there. Only reason we went back the second time is to get a diagnosis because we were already mid testing for my son. WIll be taking the testing to a more patient friendly office.
We went to this office back in March. We were told we would have to pay $50 for a nitrous oxide test that wasn't covered by the insurance and if the insurance happened to pay it, they would refund us. Well the insurance company paid it, and after many phone calls to the office, they never gave me my money back. Now it is 9 months later, the insurance company inter veined with the issue and told them to return the money to me and the office is still not refunding me!!
