Dr. Jorge H Serna has the following 3 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.
A nephrologist is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions affecting the kidneys or renal system.
A nephrologist will determine through urine analysis, blood test, X-ray, sonogram, or kidney biopsy how well the kidneys are functioning and will then prescribe a special diet and exercise program, medication or dialysis - a process by which a machine filters the blood when the kidney is no longer capable of doing so.
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Dr, Serna has a wonderful bedside manner that is both comforting and reassuring. He is direct and compassionate. Although my diagnosis was scary; Dr. Serna was patient and confident as he described my treatment options. He seemed sincerely, concerned for me and made me feel cared for. Although, I am a fairly new patient, I was treated extremely well by him and his staff. I will continue to refer my friends and family to him. I expected good, but got EXCELLENT !
Awesome Dr. I had to switch Drs because of some issues with the other Dr and I don't regret it for one second. Dr Serna is very professional, caring, and all around awesome Dr. He explained to me in 5 minutes what my other Dr lacked to explain to me in a year of going with him. His staff is nice and all around great environment. I highly recommend him.
