Specialties

Dr. Richard J Auerbach 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.

Nicest office, staff, doctors

We interviewed three or four practices before met with Auerbach Pediatrics. We knew almost immediately that this was the right thing for us. After three or four appointments, after meeting everyone, we are so thrilled. It is a very small practice, everyone knows who you are, whether you are calling on the phone, or walking in and picking up forms, or seeing a nurse or doctor. There is not one person there who gets less than a five star rating. I wish every doctors office were as fantastic. And my toddler just loves the trains and aquarium. Makes it entertaining to come to the doctor's even with Dr. Rick's bad jokes!

Superb

Great practice all around. All staff is friendly and warm and inviting. My kids love going to the doctors office! Dr's and RN's are attentive, compassionate, knowledgeable and most importantly available. Appointments are never an issue. Staff follows up to see how kids are doing. As a parent it is important not to be talked down to when it comes to your children...never have gotten this here. Its refreshing!
