Specialties

Dr. Michael J Vovakes has the following 1 specialty

  • 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.

One Star

Dr. Vovakes has denied ADHD medications for my child. Doesn't matter that my child went from a straight A student to now barely getting by with D's. Doesn't matter that the Teachers, Principal and Superintendant have written letters as to what is wrong with my child. If somethong doesn't change soon I fear my child will be expelled. The sad part is Dr. Vovakes has never seen my child. He must be skimming through my childs medical file and then he denies all the medications. The opinion of my childs regular Dr. doesn't matter. I guess 3 years of seeing a Dr. regular is not good enough. I don't understand how these other Dr's can play God and decide my childs medical needs.

Bullied into vaccinations

I took my premature daughter here, without getting different consultations. When asking about vaccinations I was told it would be negligent to not get her vaccinated. So much for choice. Finding a doctor who I can contribute to my daughters health with
