Specialties

Dr. Nancy Wallach has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

Not worth it

Everything seemed fine until I dropped off a medical evaluation form, required in order for my special needs daughter to receive services for her disability. I offered to take the bus to the Kew Gardens location and pick up the form upon completion but the pediatrician assured me that it will be mailed out. This was over a month ago. I was told by Maria that the form was mailed out the week after Thanksgiving. When I called three weeks later Maria said she will mail it again. Two weeks later I still did not receive the form so I called and was told that Stephanie handle forms. Talking to Stephanie was extremely frustrating. First she insisted that I should wait since the form was mailed out. Then she said that they do not mail out medical forms. I told her that I already explained twice that the pediatrician assured me that it would be mailed out; also Maria said she mailed it twice. I tried to make an appointment to bring a blank form then wait until it was completed, but Stephanie kept arguing with me, saying I should wait even longer to receive the form in the mail. I tried to explain the urgency of the situation but rather than listen and try to fix the issue, Stephanie kept talking while i'm talking. I consider this gross incompetence on the part of the staff. This experience has caused me great inconvenience.

Dr. Wallach as a person is nice but as a Doctor she's debatable...I've been taking my daughter to her since 06' and since 08' my daughter has been complaining about stomach problems. So she would send to do blood work and sonograms just to never call to tell speak about the results. I would always have to call and ask for results just to have the nurse say everything is normal but she's anemic. Would never be called back to the office for follow ups on her anemia. Switched to another doctor just to find out my daughter now suffers from Colitis something Dr. Wallach never picked up for years. Her office staff are very disrespectful and rude. Dr. Wallach is not in the field for patients well being but just for the amount of children she sees a day '$'. I will never recommend her nor this office to anyone.
