Dr. Richard W Abel 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.

He was assigned to my son at Northside Hospital. My son has a mass on his cheek under the skin. We were sent for an ultra sound and told results would be forthcoming in 1-2 hours. NINE HOURS LATER I was tracking down others to find out the results. Turns out Dr. Able totally forgot about us. He came in the next morning and told me he was sorry that he completely forgot about my son! Two hours later, I get a call in my hospital room to pay his bill!!!! This was the rudest I have ever been treated at a hospital. You forget about my son and a cyst but you're prompt to call me in my hospital room to pay your bill!!! STAY AWAY.
