Specialties

Dr. Martina K Bezdickova 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.

  • 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.

One Star

My experience at Washingtonville pediatrics can be summarized as: a) you rarely get to see the same doctor twice, thereby preventing any real relationship between the doctor and you and your child; b) there is NO FOLLOWUP; c) the Dr's are inaccessible for discussing concerns about prescribed medications; d) the Dr's will not take the time to engage in a meaningful discussion concerning treatment options. Specific to Dr. Bezdickova, she diagnosed my daughter with a somewhat common condition at her 4-month well-visit and prescribed what I believed was a fairly harmless cream to correct the condition. I assumed it was harmless only because one would expect that if it wasn't, your doctor would discuss the potential side effects and issues and/or other potential treatment options. Imagine my surprise when, upon filling the prescription, I learned it was a very dangerous medication with several potential side effects. Upon doing some research concerning both the medication as well as the condition, I called Dr. Bezdickova to discuss my concerns, particularly in light of numerous pediatric and specialist studies which suggested that in 90% of cases, the condition was self-correcting with time. I was never allowed to speak with Dr. Bezdickova. Instead, a nurse informed me the Dr. said I was to use the medication as prescribed. End of discussion. I consulted with an outside specialist who expressed concerns over the use of the medication in my daughter's case, and ultimately threw the medication out. At the next visit, I coincidentally got Dr. Bezdickova again. THERE WAS NO FOLLOW UP. Now, I am a reasonable person, and I do not expect a Dr to remember my child from the hundreds of others they see, but I DO EXPECT them to LOOK AT MY CHILD'S CHART - at least as far back as the last visit! Instead, she "discovered" my daughter had this (same) condition, and TRIED TO PRESCRIBE THE SAME MEDICATION. As far as she was concerned, my daughter had already been using this medication for three weeks, but there was not a single question about side effects or issues, and she was about to give her more of it -- all because she couldn't be bothered to check my daughter's charts to notice she had already diagnosed this at the last visit.
