Dr. Marsha S Shernock-Sirdofsky 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. For girls entering adulthood, adolescent specialists can act as both pediatrician and gynecologist, so they only have to see one doctor for all their needs.

Self-verified patient of Dr. Marsha S Shernock-Sirdofsky - Posted on November 23rd, 2015
If I could give a ZERO I would. Any parent please be warned of this doctor. My wife took my 4 year old boy for his annual shots. There is like 5 shots that the little boy took and he took them well. So this doctor comes breezing in for 2-5 minutes after. Was it to follow up on my trooper of a son? Was it to offer him consolation and kudos? Nope. It was - honest to God I can't make this up- for this doctor to ask my son if he was a Democrat or a Republican. No kidding. She asked my boy if he knew who president Obama was then proceeded to instruct my son that the president always has our interest at heart because he is a proponent of these shots and says that if my son didn't like it than he must be a republican. I kid you not. But that wasn't even the worst most unprofessional part - as my confused son is tearing up she proceeds to pull staff aside right outside the room and laugh with great pride at what she did. If I could report her to the AMA I would. It's appalling that she is allowed to work on children. Please accept this as a public service announcement.
