Dr. Lawrence A Schachner has the following 2 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 dermatologist is a doctor who has extensive training and knowledge of the skin, scalp, hair and nails and treats conditions that affect those areas. These doctors will evaluate any abnormality, blemish or lesion on the skin in order to determine the cause and will determine a course of treatment.
Dermatologists provide patients with full body scans in order to identify any signs that are indicative of an illness that requires treatment, such as skin cancer. These specialists may also provide cosmetic services, such as mole removal, scar diminishing treatments and even botox and face lifts.

My daughter has been suffering with eczema since she was an infant and is now nine years old. Our pediatrician recommended we go down to Miami to see Dr. Schachner. We have been to many different doctors including Dermatologists and Allergists and were hesitant to drive an hour away to see yet another Doctor. Dr. Schachner was kind and asked questions to my daughter as well as my husband and myself. He took the time to get to know her interests and also asked her little sister questions about herself. Dr. Schachner set her up on a plan with different creams and an antibiotic once a month for a week. My daughter's skin has improved. It is not perfect because you cannot cure Eczema but because this Doctor took the time to listen and not just prescribe creams and run out the door made all the difference in the world. I highly recommend Dr. Schachner!
