Dr. Jeffrey J Alvis 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.

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.

I can't believe how blessed we are to find Dr. Alvis!! If you are searching for the best and most recommended pedi in McKinney you HAVE to go see him. He is the most caring physician, extremely intelligent, and is very sweet with our children. I researched every pediatrician in the area and he was by far the most recommended by families. Our child had serious medical needs and we owe his health and life to the care of Dr. Alvis.

A WONDERFUL PEDIATRICIAN
Self-verified patient of Dr. Jeffrey J Alvis - Posted on September 2nd, 2012
It was such a breath of fresh air to come to Stonebridge Pediatrics. My family travels quite a bit and it's always hard when my children get sick and we are not familiar with doctors in area we are staying in. I really was extremely amazed at how Dr. Alvis interacted with both my children and treated us like he has known us for years, because honestly when doctors hear that we will not be a long time patients they tend not to be very personable and/or have good bedside manners. I truly wish I could have Dr. Alvis for my children's primary pediatrician.
Expert In His Field

My daughters have been seeing Dr. Alvis for almost 5 years now and I continue to be impressed with his expert care and caring office staff. One daughter was struggling significantly socially and behaviorally so we brought her to see Dr. Alvis. Her behavior was so disruptive that the entire family was miserable. After spending an hour with her and going through the paperwork requested from both us and her teachers at school he arrived at a diagnosis of ADHD and ODD. At that point we started medication and after a little trial and error our daughter is a whole new person. She's finally "herself". I can't say enough about Dr. Alvis and his expert care. Through working with our daughter he has turned our whole life around.

Very dissatisfied with Dr Alvis. I went to him for only 9 months. First he laughed at me for not knowing the true medical term of lethargic. Second, my child developed a rash at 4 months at the side of her face. Dr Alvis prescribed a $200 steroid cream. Rash did not get better and then he prescribed medicine so she would not get a staph infection. Rash kept coming back, I asked the doctor if it could be a food allergy since it started when I started to give her baby food. Doctor said it could be an allergy, but he did not want to do any testing and I should continue with the steroid creme. I went to get a second opinion. My daughter actually had a sensitivity to fruit. I took her off fruit and the rash cleared up and it has never returned!!! I should have went with my motherly instinct sooner and taken her to another doctor much sooner.
I am so sorry to hear your experience was less than perfect! Rashes are sometimes obvious what the cause is and other times are more difficult and takes a specialist to help figure it out. I am happy to hear that the rash cleared and glad you were able to determine the cause.
