Specialties

Dr. Patricia J Amato 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.

TOP-notch!

Dr. Amato was my pediatrician as a child and she is now my daughter and my son's pediatrician. I can't say enough positive things about her and her office. Employee turnover is very low and that says a lot about the quality of the office. Every staff member I've come into contact with over the years is helpful and nice. Dr. Amato tends to run behind a little but I don't mind waiting because she takes the time with every pt and parent to listen, explain things, and answer questions, and that quality has not changed as her patient load has increased. I don't know how she has time to see patients at the office, make rounds at all the hospitals, teach at Wash U, write books, and also has 6 children! Her being voted in to "Best Doctors in America" repeatedly is well-deserved!
