Dr. Paul D Yuratich 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.

So I arrived on time. Signed in. Waited about 35-40 mins to be seen. I was never offered water or anything and when I asked the nurse for water she asked if I had to have a urine sample... Which I thought odd. She reluctant gave me a styrofoam cup of water. In the back room, the nurse came to check my vitals--- blood pressure and temperature. I'm type 1, every doctor I've been to also checked my blood sugars. The nurse was also type 1 and she just went on and on about herself like she was the patient. The doctor comes in with his laptop asking me all sorts of medical history questions. I tell him I suspect other auto-immune diseases and would like him to check especially for hypothyroidism. He asks me what symptoms I've been experiencing. I named like ten symptoms. Later when I looked at the report, he only named two symptoms and one I never mentioned! So he wasn't listening. He leaves with his computer and sends me out back in the lobby to sign another clipboard for blood work. I wait another 15-20 mins. I get back there and the hematologist prints out a paper for me to sign. I look at it and realize many tests are missing and there wasn't even an a1c on there. I tell her there must be some sort of problem bc he should be running more tests. She gets frustrated with her co-workers and starts complaining about people not doing their job. The other staff were pretty rude also--- talking loudly about people on the phone, having unprofessional conversations, etc. it was a terrible experience. I would not go back to this office.
