Specialties

Dr. Leonard J Pittala has the following 1 specialty

  • 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.

Whenever my daughter was sick, Dr. Pittala was the only doctor in the group with opennings. He always wanted us to come back in check her progress which meant more $$$ and more inconvenience. Always a long wait. We switched to Pediatric Associates near the plaza and are much happier.

I thought I was the only one who thought this Doctor was cold and distant.He spoke very fast didn't even take the time to connect with me or my child.I was almost afraid to ask any questions.It seemed as though he was always in a hurry to get out and go.Absolutely love this doctors office would recommend any of the other doctors.I have had very satisfying experiences with them.

I have been taking my 14 year old son to Dr Pittala since he was born. Despite insurance changing off & on and circumstances required me to move further away from his office, I have continued to have him care for my child because he has ALWAYS been caring, professional and accurate! He listens to my concerns and is very factual, frank and to the point, while making sure I know how to care for my child in the circumstance and lets me know what I am doing right!
