Dr. Robert D Chessin 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.

We are so grateful that we found Dr. Chessin over a decade ago, after moving to town and trying all sorts of different practices. He was recommended by my daughter's PT at school as the BEST pediatrician and he IS. (Her sons went to him) He listens carefully, is respectful, always treats me and the children wonderfully, and is caring and gives the right diagnostic treatments. He provides medication as he sees fit vs. throwing samples from reps at you, like other providers sometimes do. We love him!!! Sorry our kids are getting so old!!
Dr. Chessin is extremely sensitive and caring for my childs needs. He listens attentively to what I or my child tells him and asks critical questions to arrive at an accurate assessment of my ADHD child who also has a learning disability. Dr. Chessin's reputation is excellent throughout the community.
My youngest child is about to start college, so we've graduated from pediatrics. However, I want to leave my comments for future patients, because Dr. Chessin is outstanding and I greatly appreciate his care of my children the past 25+ years. One of my sons was premature, and he and his brother both have neurological disorders, and Dr. Chessin guided me through all that. One time, during an emergency, he got on the phone and argued with an insurance company rep until the rep agreed to let my son go to the hospital Dr. Chessin thought was best. My children were never afraid of him, and he never talked down to them or me. We're all going to miss him.
