Dr. Peter N Schochet has the following 2 specialties
- Pediatric Pulmonology
A pediatric pulmonologist is the go-to resource for children who need treatment for any kind of breathing issue or lung disease. If your child coughs up blood, has a cough that isn’t going away, or displays other symptoms such as trouble breathing, chest pain or wheezing, you can ask your doctor to refer you to a pediatric pulmonologist.
Common conditions and diseases they treat range from noisy breathing, asthma and chronic coughs to lung disease, apnea and cystic fibrosis. They can also diagnose and treat cases of pneumonia in children and prescribe any kind of respiratory medication or equipment your child might need.
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.

We had to wait 2 hours with our preemie baby at a scheduled appointment. The nurse informed us it was because the receptionist made a mistake and thought we were at the wrong appointment time/day and wanted to "punish" us. Absolutely the worst office staff we've ever dealt with and with a premature baby, we have worked with many many medical professionals.
I highly recommend Dr. Schochet! We were referred to him by our pediatrician. He not only diagnosed my daughters problem but he also found other problems she was having and referred us to a wonderful therapist that has helped my daughter enormously. I can't thank Dr. Schochet enough for his help and referral!
