  • 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.

Record of Malpractice

Dr. Lat was my childhood pediatrician. I had chronic ear infections and when various ear drops proved ineffective, she recommended a home remedy instead of recommending a consultation with a specialist. This went on for several years despite my parent's concerns until they finally decided to get a second opinion -- turns out I had a seriously out of control cholesteatoma (middle ear tumor) that required surgery to remove the tumor and replace my ear drum and hearing bones -- if we had listened to her, it would have eventually caused a brain infection and may have caused irreparable damage. I learned many years later that she had similarly misdiagnosed my sister in law as a child as well. She may be over worked or something, but she is definitely not a competent physician and I would not recommend her to anyone. In fact, I would caution anyone considering Dr. Lat to stay away.
