Dr. Purnachander R Sirikonda has the following 2 specialties
- 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.
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.

My son has been seeing doctor Sirikonda since he was born in 2007. As far as his performance as a doctor, he is a great doctor who is very knowledgeable and attentive to his patients (WHEN HE ACTUALLY SHOWS UP). Notice the title of my review...HIS HACKENSACK OFFICE IS THE ABSOLUTE WORST AND FULL OF COMPLETE IDIOTS WHO HAVE SUCH A LANGUAGE BARRIER AND GETS FRUSTRATED WITH YOU BECAUSE THEY BOUGHT THEMSELVES INTO THIS COUNTRY NOT SPEAKING GOOD ENGLISH AND NOT COMPLETELY UNDERSTANDING WTH YOU ARE SAYING....they book you for appointments and then when you go to the office, they either really didn't book you for the appointment or the doctor is extremely late and you are just sitting there for hours, and God forbid you ask them what's going on or want some type of update...now you're being unreasonable. I feel the doctor neither the staff has empathy and could care less about your time and what you have to do with your life. After 9 years of bringing my son there, I decided to change to another doctor. I REFUSE to keep feeding this doctor's pockets...after all these years of my son seeing him, he had the nerve to tell me to either wait there for him to arrive or find another doctor...REALLY???!! He didn't like that I asked the stupid so called receptionist to call him because I was waiting for over a hour for something that they told me would only take a few minutes (a prescription that they insisted I needed to get in person)! Never received an apology...nothing...just "if you don't want to wait, don't wait...or find another doctor" so that's what I did. If you have 3 hours to waste on waiting for this doctor, then this is your guy.
Dr Sirikonda is so sweet and so compassionate. He cares for us like his own family. my kids love him. We travel from 2.5 hours away from south jersey just to see him and my kids refuse to see any other pediatrician other than Dr Siri. He spend lot of time, educates, guides, truly cares for my children...!!
