Richard Stiefler has the following 2 specialties
A dermatologist is a doctor who has extensive training and knowledge of the skin, scalp, hair and nails and treats conditions that affect those areas. These doctors will evaluate any abnormality, blemish or lesion on the skin in order to determine the cause and will determine a course of treatment.
Dermatologists provide patients with full body scans in order to identify any signs that are indicative of an illness that requires treatment, such as skin cancer. These specialists may also provide cosmetic services, such as mole removal, scar diminishing treatments and even botox and face lifts.
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.

I waited in his office for two hours, after asking how much longer I was ignored so I asked a second time only to be given the excuse he is in a surgery and does not like to be interrupted but she would just this once. She then came in to tell me that he was going to be another 30 minutes and that it would be best to reschedule. I walked out. I am in health care and understand emergencies happen but to let a patient wait for two hours with no one checking in and then to say you have to reschedule me is absurd and completely unprofessional. It says something about the way he runs his practice. When you don't care your staff doesn't either.
Ladies at the frot desk were nice. Dr. Stiefler would not let me finish my sentences when trying to describe my problems. He was not personable or courteous in the slightest. I went to see him so he could re-write my prescription from my old dermatologist in another state. He acted as though I was a pain and wouldn't even fax my prescription in for me. He told me to do it myself even after I told him I did not have access to a fax machine.
