Dr. Mark A Wayne has the following 1 specialty
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.

I would leave no stars if I could. Worst Dr. I have ever took my kids to see. No bed side manners. I think he chose the wrong profession. Took my son in for a fever. He said it was a cold. Sorry but my son is asthmatic and doesn't ever get a fever from just a cold. His body was fighting something obviously... Hint the fever. He refused antibiotics which was ok. But he didn't exam my son well enough knowing he has asthma and always get upper respiratory infections or strep. He only did a flu test. This was a Friday and my husband took him in to see dr Wayne. Being a concerned mom with a 5 yr old who's fever wasn't breaking with meds or bath I called the nurse to see if he could call in antibiotics since we were going into the weekend. Dr Wayne called me back sounding irritated by my concerns and told me I should've taken my son in instead of my husband if I'm so concerned. I was at complete shock from his response I just ended the call. Well come Sunday I took my son into the ER and he developed pneumonia. Which I believe could've have been prevented if he would've did a thorough check.. Especially since he's asthmatic and could get upper respiratory infection. But besides all of that, I'm still in shock with his bed side manners. Also while sharing this story I've come to find out others who have experienced same horrible bed side manners. How does he still have his practice?
My child (age 4) was sick (fever, cough) and he took a throat swab with a negative rapid strep result so he sent it off for culture. 2 days later the symptoms were worse (high fever, incessant non-productive cough, loss of appetite, one loose stool). I went back and he wouldn't see him for the same reason and told nurse to tell me it sounded like a virus and to treat the fever and wait for the culture. It was Friday and the culture wasn't due until Saturday and even if the culture was negative, he clearly has more going on than a virus and needs to be looked at. Their office is closed until Monday. I took my child elsewhere on Friday and he was seen and diagnosed with strep and given an antibiotic. Fever free by the next morning. I don't know if perhaps it is an insurance thing or an arrogance thing that caused him to turn my baby away for a second visit for worsening symptoms... but I am a frustrated Mama who will not be going back there.
I must first say bedside manner is great, and we can be seen the same day. However, his "children get sick attitude" made our son get very sick to the point on pneumonia. I took him in on a Monday with a cough that was not very bad, he checked his ears, throat, and eyes, however never ran any test. he told me if he runs a fever come back, but he never ran a fever. Our son ended up having RSV which lead to pneumonia.
My daughter has been seeing Dr. Wayne since she was born five years ago and we have been very happy with the relationship. Dr. Wayne listens to mom but then allows our daughter to tell him how she is doing and what is bothering her. When she was younger and shy, he took time to draw her out of her shell. Except for shots, my daughter loves going to visit Dr. Wayne!
