Dr. Joseph G Piacentine has the following 1 specialty
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.

This Dr. has blessed our life. He was there for the first meeting, immediately after the birth of my son. We would highly recommend this MPPA office, and this Dr., as I have interviewed many before having children. We have had nothing but positive experiences here. He was recommended to us, ten years ago, and I will continue to bring my 2 children to him for the utmost care. We can not say enough about him as a person and as a professional. He was meant to be a pediatrician!
To me as a mom, there is nothing more valuable than a caring pediatrician who is genuinely concerned with my child. I have never had a doctor that listens so attentively and really thinks before handing out a medication and/or diagnosis. He is even humble enough to seek a second opinion when he is unsure. We will only use him and his practice. We even recently moved and continue to drive to his office. He is amazing and I cannot rave enough! We love you Dr. Piacentine!
