Dr. Robert S Festa has the following 3 specialties
- Pediatric Hematology-Oncology
- Adolescent Medicine
Adolescent specialists are doctors who have advanced training in the health issues that adolescents face. These physicians deal with issues like the onset of puberty, reproductive health, eating disorders, irregular periods, mood changes, drugs and pressures from home and school. For girls entering adulthood, adolescent specialists can act as both pediatrician and gynecologist, so they only have to see one doctor for all their needs.
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.

Brought my son to the Shirley, NY office for a flu shot. Never met the doc, the PA gave the flu shot but the office is deplorable. Old, dirty, small. The exam room we were in had no chair to sit in. Yep, coats and purse (which are know to be germ collectors) had to go on exam table. Also had to use the exam table as a desk to fill out paperwork. Ceiling stained. Old garbage can was dented and had old stickers stuck to it. No windows in the exam room. No pictures on the wall. Just old 1980ish dirty looking wallpaper. The wood on the doors were chipping. They weren't using electronic medical charts. When you are checking out, you're basically in the doorway where they call patients in. Didn't see any hand sanitizer around. Why I stayed, I don't know. I wouldn't bring my dog to a vet with an office that looked like that. The search begins for a new doc.
