Specialties

Dr. Joseph A Janicki has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatric Surgery

    A pediatric surgeon is a qualified surgeon who has additional training in performing surgery on young patients, including fetuses (neonatal or fetal surgery), infants, children, adolescents and teenagers.
    Because pediatric patients are still growing and developing, they are often more difficult to operate on than adults. These patients have smaller bodies and smaller organs requiring even more of a precise and measured approach by a surgeon.
    Some of the conditions that may require the care of a pediatric surgeon are congenital malformations, such as cleft lip and palate, abdominal wall defects, like hernias, deformities of the chest wall, childhood tumors, like neuroblastomas and separation of conjoined twins.

Highly recommended

I recently took my daughter to see Dr Janicki for a second opinion. He was extremely professional, knowledgeable, and thorough. He took time to get to know my daughter, to answer our questions and to address our concerns. My daughter was extremely uncomfortable with the first peds ortho that she saw that said she needed hip surgery. After seeing Dr. Janicki, she said that she was extremely comfortable with him and would trust him if surgery was needed. (Which by-the-way, was not needed.) Overall - one of the best office appt experiences

Great!!!

Amazing doctor! I felt that everything was very personalized and that he cared for me. He also thought about how I felt about getting poked with needles at least once a week for tests and did not do anything I did not feel ok with.

Horrible patient care

I had high hopes for this doctor. Since I've been with Children's since I was 10, I can still see them until I'm 25- I am now 22. I have a horrible hip impingement that Dr. Janicki diagnosed me with 2 years ago. Unfortunately at that time, I was unable to have my surgery due to personal reasons. I recently returned to him since I've been in horrible pain the past month. Take in mind, I saw him over 2 weeks ago and he was supposed to talk to colleagues and get back to me within one week- I haven't heard a word from him. Last week when I called his nurse, CRYING because of how much pain I was in, she told me he hadn't even addressed my case yet. The next day, I was in the emergency room. That was last week. AND I STILL HAVEN'T HEARD FROM THEM!! His nurse is also bothersome- I have experience with other doctors at Children's and none of them have made me feel so dumb for the symptoms I'm having and completely non-sympathetic. Let's just say I found a new doctor, and hope he at least has some good patient care. I would never recommend this doctor to anyone.
