Specialties

Dr. Maria M Franco 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.

She is always friendly, caring and patient with my son. Her diagnosis is always correct, and her referrals hold up to the same standard as she does.

I think Dr. Lipat is a great doctor. She is caring and compassionate. Truly a step above the rest. My old pediatrician spoke so fast, he made my head spin. He was precise and it felt like he was herding cattle. In & Out!My only issue is the office wait time. Be prepared to spend your entire day at the doctor's office. God forbid if you're a walk in you'll be there for at least 4 hours. Which is a shame! But her great bedside manner is what has prompted me not to look for another doctor. Instead, I just make appointments on the weekends, because I have time!
