Specialties

Dr. Lois H Gesn 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.

One Star

I would never recommend her. At first I thought she was a great Dr. Now we are dealing with CPS. And her claims cannot be supported. She did blood work and hasn't gotten results but has reported that our baby has been drugged. Stay far away.

I LOVE Dr. Gesn. She is friendly and understanding. She takes her time and explains things to you. She does not push her ideas on you, but instead encourages you when you express how you would like things to go with your child. I have never waited over five minutes to see her. I trust her completely with my child and have recommended her to people I know. If my family lived closer, they would switch to her because I have raved about her so much. And my baby likes her too!!! Staff if friendly and professional.
