  • 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.

Can't even tell you if this Dr is good because

The front desk staff is horrible. I have been calling for 2 weeks leaving several messages including leaving urgent messages with the answering service and no call back. My kids are behind on their vaccines for school and my son has severe allergies that require an epi-pen which is expired so he needs to be seen. Do they care? No! No call back at.all. Seriously, this is horrible patient care and will be looking in to my options of going somewhere else as soon as insurance gives the okay. I did see 1 of their other doctors last year and he was pretty rude. Plus the staff kept losing the paper they needed to fill out regarding the epi-pen as required by the school and it took them 3 months till I finally showed up in person for it.

I really like Dr. Lau, but I am not a fan of the location of his practice. He is located in a walk-in clinic, which is a good thing, but he often takes walk-ins before his scheduled appointments, making people with appointments wait a long time when they have an appointment. It is difficult to wait when you have a squirmy one year old. Also, there is no separate area for children to wait-- if waiting will be part of the experience, then at least have a waiting room with games and toys for children to play with to keep them occupied.
