Dr. Peter I Agho has the following 2 specialties
- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.
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.

I've been a patient of Dr Agho since 1996 & can say that he's a very attentive, caring, and good doctor. His office is good at accommodating last minute emergencies which is a definite plus. Unfortunately, the staff isn't very friendly, caring, helpful, or organized. I've waited over an hour during several appointments, waited around for my referrals for long periods of time only to receive whatever they could just pull up quickly, and was asked to present my insurance card during every visit, even when they were within a week from each other. The office itself isn't very aesthetic, organized, or comfortable. After so many years I'm still hoping that all these things would improve so that a visit with Dr Agho could be a better overall experience. Still, I would recommend seeing him.
I've been seeing Dr. Agho on and off since 1996. Dr. Agho is friendly, patient, and thorough. He asked me plenty of pertinent questions to help find what ailed me. The tests he ran were also helpful and useful in finally tracking down the cause of what had mysteriously ailed me for quite some time. He has never over tested me. The only issues have been staff related. They have always been incompetent, unwilling to help,rushed and uninterested in their work or patients, and absolutely not friendly/courteous. Also, getting an appointment can be difficult because of the staff more so than the doctor's availability. The staff is always scurrying to find patient's files and insurance information even when you have an appointment. Additionally, the office is not very aesthetic, although the treatment room is very clean and organized, the waiting area isn't very nice or comfortable. Lastly, the wait time can be a bit too much.
