Dr. Manamadurai R Somasundaram 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.
- Adolescent Medicine
Adolescent specialists are doctors who have advanced training in the health issues that adolescents face. These physicians deal with issues like the onset of puberty, reproductive health, eating disorders, irregular periods, mood changes, drugs and pressures from home and school.

The doctors is great but having people like Esme running your office will make people leave . I left her a message to call me back and she never did . Finally when I called to follow up she was mad , rude and started yelling at me. After not allowing me to speak for 5 minutes she finally hung up on me.

The staff is extremely discourteous. I asked for a letter of health for my son so that I can get him a life insurance policy. The front desk lady told me that the doctor is not making any money on my son since he is not getting sick that often. So to give a letter, she wants to charge $20.
