Specialties

Dr. Rana Al-Durrah has the following 1 specialty

  • 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.

Three Stars

Dr. Al-Durrah has always been accurate in diagnosing my child and made me feel comfortable when I'm in the office. The front staff is very friendly. When I come in because my child is sick, Dr. Al-Durrah gives me a good amount of time to share my concerns. However, when my child has check-ups every month, I never get all my questions answered before she's out the door and on to another patient. The past 3 check-ups have left me feeling very disappointed and contemplating finding a new pediatrician. Giving her patients an extra 2-3 minutes to get all questions answered and not standing ready to walk out the door would go a long way.

Amazing doctor

We have moved a bit and have had experience with a few doctors. dr. Al-Durrah is absolutely the best. She is an amazing doctor-very calm and thorough. We have had some chronic issues and she made a referral for us at the appropriate time. She is a wise doctor and gives me her medical opinion in a very upfront way. I so appreciate her having enough respect for me and care or my children to tell us her medical opinion frankly (vs some doctors who do more parent hand holding than child advocacy). My kids love her (in fact, just today my son said 'what a nice doctor she is!')The office is clean and convenient, 5 min or less wait time and easy to get appointments. This is simply the best run office with the best doctor!
