Specialties

Dr. Paul M Chlpka Jr 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.

Not recommended

As another reviewer said, this doctor is arrogant and rude and has no qualms lecturing parents as though they're naughty children for not agreeing with his recommendations. He made an uncalled-for derogatory comment about our assumed financial status and was fully condescending. He also smooches all over the baby at each visit, which I find disturbing and unprofessional. We will not see him again.

Four Stars

I really like Dr. Chlpka. He is great with children and very thorough. The wait time at Helping Hands is too long. I have an infant and a toddler, and waiting for an hour in the exam room is ridiculously long for them.

This office is wonderful!!! I've been taking my 3 kids there for years. Dr. Chlpka and staff have only the best interest of children in mind. The previous post is defaming and not true at all.

Self-Centered and Arrogant

This man should be working with adults, not kids. He is one of the most arrogant individuals in the professions...thinks he is a god. Wait time is ridiculous as they try to farm as many kids in as possible to make as much money as they can. DO NOT TAKE YOUR KIDS HERE.
