Dr. Paul A Panzica has the following 2 specialties
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.
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

I had horrible stomach pains and he said everything looks fine and he gave me an antidepressant thinking it was in my head..... i went to a gastro Dr and had an upper and lower and found out it was colitis. I had a planters wart on my foot and he prescribed an immunotherapy cream that did nothing at all for the 2 months i tried it. i went in to a dermatologist and got it taken off in one treatment of freezing and he said that cream Dr Panzica gave me would not work on the thicker skin on your foot it more used for genital warts bc its thinner skin. I have been a patient for 5 years and needed to get in for a physical two weeks before testing for my job and they could not squeeze me in so i had to pay to go to an urgent care. My daughter had pneumonia and we didn't find out for 5 days after going in for an x-ray right after the appt and the hospital faxed the results over right after. for pediatrician Dr. Tortoriello out of Silver Cross or Dr. Jercinovic in Shorewood. I am currently looking for a new doctor for myself.
My impression was that he was willing do do anything that needed for me, but wasn't interested in wasting my time and money with unnecessary test, which he explained to me. I wouldn't normally post this review, except I see some others on here that stand in stark contrast to my experience. I have very much appreciated my time with Dr Panzica and would definitely recommend him to friends and family.
