Dr. Leticia Alaniz has the following 2 specialties
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
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.

She is a doctor in which should not be practicing medicine. She misdiagnosed my mother's lung cancer for many months by throwing antibiotics to her every office visit and sporadically doing chest X-rays. As our malpractice attorney is reviewing her records, it's beyond evident in the few X-rays that were ordered, a tumor was indeed present...and growing!!! I'm not a physician, nor is my attorney, but it's clear as day there was a mass in her lung. She has since passed away, because once it was caught by an entirely different physician it was stage 4. Do NOT see this so-called "doctor!!!!"
Dr. Alaniz takes care of me and my family and would not trust anyone else. She spends so much time with me and is extremely knowledgable. She is so sweet and caring and we are all thrilled to have her near us so we can have the honor of letting her skills take care of our health. there was no wait time and she spent the time we needed. She assessed us and her diagnosis was right on the money.Thank you Dr. Alaniz! I would definitely recommend again!
