Specialties

Dr. Jocelyn Celestin has the following 3 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

Wouldn't return even in emergency

I would not trust him with my health or anyone else's ever. I was very sick (who isn't when going to an immunologist) he barely listened to me. Would not look at tests or report from other drs. Did Actual Physical Damage (I had to take photos it was that bad). Invited a handful of students into exam room with barely a word. Then proceeds to address them and not me. At the end of the appointment he simply walked out. I had to go in the hall and ask a nurse if the appointment was over. No testing ordered. No advice or diagnosis. This was beyond appalling to leave basically in tears from pain and anger. The only positive thing about my visit was the short wait and the secretary's observation and concern at my distress when leaving. Consented to meet briefly with office manager and provide her with photos of damage.

I've only seen him once. I'm definitely going to continue to see him. I had to wait a bit but he was apologetic. He took his time asked several questions listened to myself. I hope this is helpful.
