Specialties

Dr. Michael R Yaffe 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.

  • Pediatric Gastroenterology

    Pediatric gastroenterologists can treat a variety of diseases and conditions in infants and children related to their liver, pancreas or intestines. If your child has severe or recurrent abdominal pain, constipation or diarrhea, a pediatric gastroenterologist can help you get to the bottom of it. They can also help identify the many possible causes of failure to thrive in infants.
    Other common conditions they treat include Crohn's Disease, inflammatory bowel disease, liver disease, short gut syndrome and hepatitis C, as well as nutritional disorders like celiac disease and lactose intolerance. In order to diagnose and treat your child’s condition, gastroenterologists can perform colonoscopies and other diagnostic testing before deciding on the best treatment plan.

He was great! I don't know why he has low reviews. I was diagnosed with celiac and crohns disease as a young child and have continued to be his patient for years. He is always very helpful and nice to me.

Horrible

He made me feel like I was a bad mother and that I was incompetent. I found him to be arrogant and will not be making a follow up appointment with him. I wished I hadn't even gone to see him, it was a waste of time. The only positive things were that I didn't have much waiting time and the nurse was nice.

If your Child is in Need of the Best Gastrointerologist he is it

Dr. Michael Yaffe of Madison, WI diagnosed and treated my daughter when other doctors had been telling us this was just a virus. He spent well over 45 minutes with us explaining ulcerative colitis which is what she was diagnosed with. He is by far the best doctor any of my children have seen.
