Dr. John Fyda has the following 2 specialties
- Pediatric Gastroenterology
Pediatric gastroenterologists can treat a variety of diseases and conditions in infants and children related to their liver, pancreas or intestines. If your child has severe or recurrent abdominal pain, constipation or diarrhea, a pediatric gastroenterologist can help you get to the bottom of it. They can also help identify the many possible causes of failure to thrive in infants.
Other common conditions they treat include Crohn's Disease, inflammatory bowel disease, liver disease, short gut syndrome and hepatitis C, as well as nutritional disorders like celiac disease and lactose intolerance. In order to diagnose and treat your child’s condition, gastroenterologists can perform colonoscopies and other diagnostic testing before deciding on the best treatment plan.
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 couldn't agree more with the reviews I just read here. He was the most condescending doctor I have ever been to. His secretary was rude. After diagnosing my daughter immediately with IBS and insinuating she hadn't been vomiting daily or any of her other symptoms were real, we were extremely frustrated. His advice was keep her in school and more fiber. I insisted on an upper GI (the results were negative) and then an endoscopy. I had to argue with his secretary about scheduling it, she must have her medical degree as well. He came in to see my daughter the day of the test and basically accused her of not having any symptoms and insisted this test was a waste of his time. It also was negative. He called me with the results and told me that again he knows she has IBS and its stress. He insisted on days she suffered with terrible episodes of diarrhea that she still go to school, because "other kids I see have it WAY worse than her." There's a reason his schedule is so open to get an appointment quickly and the other group of GI doctors has a three month wait. I have removed gluten from my daughters diet, based on what I've read, and she's improving. I would never suggest this doctor to anyone, EVER.
It is difficult to put into words how disappointed I was in Dr. Fyda. He took very little interest in my child. He came up with a quick, easy diagnosis which as it turns out is inaccurate, and he was unwilling to do or order any diagnostic tests. We had to get a second opinion in order to find out what was wrong with our child. I find it hard to believe that Children's Hospital of Akron allows him to practice medicine in their facility.
I went to him in five or six years ago. Just as others have said....he was obnoxious, unprofessional, arrogant and disruptive. He did nothing but blood tests and an upper GI. He assumed I had IBS and had the audacity to tell me to "see a psychologist". I didn't and still don't have symptoms of IBS. He disregards my symptoms and think she knows better than I do what's wrong with me. He interrupted me constantly and shot down everything I said when I was so sick I had a hard enough time articulating and relaying my symptoms and concerns as it was. I see I'm not the only one..and I can't believe he's been there as long as he has with his behavior.
Dr. Fyda utilized previous medical tests (recent) to avoid doubling them up. He discussed with my daughter what her symptoms, etc, were, asking in differing approaches to ensure that he was getting the full picture. He asked me as a parent to add any needed information at any given time. He was caring, yet professional. Dr. Fyda restated answers to my daughter, explained thoroughly whathe was and was not seeing specific to the situation, and gave his opinion based upon the evidence he was provided. I would recommend him, and would utilize his services again, if needed.
