Dr. Peter P Grandaw has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • Adolescent Medicine

    Adolescent specialists are doctors who have advanced training in the health issues that adolescents face. These physicians deal with issues like the onset of puberty, reproductive health, eating disorders, irregular periods, mood changes, drugs and pressures from home and school. For girls entering adulthood, adolescent specialists can act as both pediatrician and gynecologist, so they only have to see one doctor for all their needs.

Good for routine exams

I was initially drawn to Dr. Grandaw's bedside demeanor...focused on the kid and funny! He was great with my daughter when performing her pre-Kindergarten physical. He asked her questions, made her laugh, and listened to her. The nurse was also great and patient with the emotions that often accompany vaccinations. However, on a subsequent visit we had a subpar experience. Without giving too many details, he was way more hands off and less funny when my daughter was actually sick. I left the office feeling as though we were a definite inconvenience and that he was quick to suggest hospitalization (for the flu bug). A disappointment....

Outstanding Initial Visit

Has a sense of humor, cares, knowledgeable. I have two internationally adopted children and he caused me to rethink some conditions we'd just decided to learn to live with and to instead try some follow-up care. Extremely good at spending time with me and my children. His was the best first-time visit I've ever had for me or any family member in 50+ years and I've had some very good ones!

After doing my research and having him come highly recommended by friends, I chose Dr. Grandaw for my first born. I met with him and he seemed wonderful so once she was born, I was happy he would be looking after her..until our first appointment. He barely looked at her and when I asked him about her tongue being white,he told me it was just formula...despite the fact that he didn't even look. I told him it was constant and that is never wiped off and he laughed it off and again told me it was formula. He was her doctor so I took his word. We left his office and went straight to meet with a lactation consultant. To make a long story short, as soon as she opened my 2 week old's mouth, she gasp and instantly told us that our daughter had a horrible case of Thrush. She said it was so thick that she could choke and when we told her we JUST left our doctor and he assured us she was fine, the consultant was horrified. I called Dr. Grandaw's office panicking (not only is it dangerous for my daughter, she couldn't breast feed because it could infect me too) and insisted on coming back. Dr. Grandaw was overly casual about everything and when he looked he said 'oh, yeah, that is really bad.' I was livid. He wrote her antibiotics and ointment and we rushed to get them as we left the next morning to move to Texas. We went straight to the pharmacy....and had a very confused pharmacist tell us that they haven't been giving what he has prescribed for her for a long time because it proven to be very cancer harmful. Another call to Grandaw and another casual 'oops.' Despite all this, I brushed it off...until my husband's aunt told me a HORRIBLE story about why she stopped taking her 2 kids to him after 5 years. I realize he is a very loved doctor and people make mistakes, but I will never take my kids back there or recommend him.

This guy is a joker

He told me "marijuana makes music sound better" when I brought my three month old son to him after finding out his mom was smoking pot and nursing. He also wrote a note to the court defending her use. He failed to act in accordance with AAP policy. Stay away!

Five Stars

The only issue we ever have is calling to ask a question. Jessica, who answers the phone always avoids putting me through to a nurse or Dr. Grandaw if she can. It always seems like she is reading from a script when I have a very specific question, like anything I could get off the computer myself. It is really frustrating when I just want to call and get a formal opinion from my son's doctor.
