Specialties

Dr. Richard J Menendez 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.

office is rude

I recently took my 2 yr old daughter in as a walking because she had had 4 days of fever and cough and couldnt control the fever. The staff was so rude telling me they couldn't see her. I told them to check her temp and it had risen from 101 to 102.9 and I had given motrin 2 hours ago they said it was normal and they didn't let me speak with the doctor. I immediatly call my old pediatritian from when I was a child and they told me to take her in right away. I called the insurance to make the change and went to the other docotor she had signs of peunumonia luckly it was not but she still had the swine flu. I will never go back to dr menendez since this was urgent and I couldnt not control the fever he is so irresponsible

My Children Come First

We were aquaintex with.Dr. Menendez in 09 when our son was born... Dr. Menendez approach was abrupt and ao confident that we knew he was the right pediatrian for our children. His tactics are dire t, raw, opinionated and he ia well informed which fits our liking. We are his patience, not friends, we respect his medical views and following thru as we see appropriate. No doctor is everything or the answer to all. Yet, we do as I say again have no formal complaints and have been satisfied these past three years with Dr. Menendez as our pediatrician...I recommend him if you like to be seen by an honest educated and doctor who takes interest in your child. We do!!!

I blame this Dr for everything my son and my family is going threw.
