- Neurology with Special Qualifications in Child Neurology
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.

Dr. Pauline Filipek is very rude and short. She made me feel like I am not doing enough for my child, she made me feel like a bad parent. She is wanting all kinds of tests done to my child but never explained what each test is for and the reason why they have to be done. Never once did she ask me about my autistic child's progress, I brought a list of words that my baby says and things that she enjoys to do and stuff that she struggles with. At the end of the appointment I left confused and disappointed with my baby's Dr. Dr. Pauline Filipek does not want to get to know her patients. She is not a people person at all. I would never recommend her to a friend or family member.
I have a seven year old daughter whom for 3 years I have had serious concerns over her development, speech, education, and social skills, even though she has taken speech therapy since she was two years old. I previously went two other specialist that provided us with no help or direction. Finally, my daughter's therapy center that had observed the same concerns that I had for my daughter, recommended Dr. Filipek. I was able to make an appointment for my daughter, my husband I read her reviews a few weeks before my daughter's assessment and actually almost canceled considering we were already burned from two other specialist. I'm glad that our speech therapist talked me out of it! Dr. Filipek was very thorough that it floored us compared to our previous experiences. She actually pin pointed our concerns with out us explaining them to her. My daughter's diagnosis was not one a parent would ever want to hear but when trying to raise your child and feeling unsuccessful because you are missing pieces to your child's story is far worse. Dr. Filipek is straight forward and is not going to sugar coat anything she observes. She is there only to provide what they child needs not what a parent wants to hear. So if reading reviews about any physicians, I say take them with a grain of salt. You know your child best. Keep fighting for what you believe your child needs.
My parents brought me to this weirdo when I was only three. I do not deny I was difficult however she told my parents that no treatment would ever work on me , I had no empathy despite being loving towards my parents and I should be sent to an instution like trash. I am now 24 years old, graduated with honors in high school and have had the same job for three years.
