Dr. Manuela A Orjuela has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

The most uncaring pediatric oncologist I have encountered

I have met all of the pediatric oncologists at Columbia during my child's extended hospital stays, and have repeatedly been appalled by how uncaring and unprofessional Dr. Orjuela is. She has an attitude of arrogance and does not seem to feel that she needs to spend any time with parents answering questions and concerns. Every time I ask her a question, she either completely ignores my concern and avoids answering or is patronizing and acts as though she should be implicitly trusted without question, simply because she is the doctor. Dr. Orjuela is insensitive and uncaring and I would NEVER recommend that anyone bring their child to her. Parents of children with cancer should be treated as part of the medical team and not dismissed by an arrogant and insensitive doctor.
