Dr. Raquel M Apodaca has the following 1 specialty
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.

Troubles with calculations
Self-verified patient of Dr. Raquel M Apodaca - Posted on March 15th, 2011
I am a pharmacist who filled a Rx from this Dr. When I received a Rx from this Dr for a 3 week old baby, I noticed the dose was rather high. Upon calling the dr to verify the dose, the dr was very defensive and belittling, with the "how dare you question me, I'm going to prove you wrong" tone. when she realized that she over dosed the medication by 5x, she blamed it on not prescribing the medication very often and how she prefers to prescribe pills so that she doesn't have to do calculations. This was an unprofessional and ridiculous excuse. As a pharmacist, my role is to double check the Dr's work, and work togther with them to make patients better. I don't call over to the physicians when verifying prescriptions, accusing them or showing them up by saying or pointing out that they're wrong. I call over to make sure the patient is getting what they need, in a safe and effective dose. We are all human, and all make mistakes, let's just all work together for the patients, shall we?
