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.

Went with my niece to this quack doctor. The child was taken to him at four years old for what looked like warts, now 5 this doctor refused to give a referral to a dermatologist his treatments have not worked and claim this next treatment would work and he considered dermatologist as "wart snots" and they did not like dealing with warts. I went because of the way he has treated the parents like if they knew nothing about parenting and the way he talked down to them. When asked why he wouldn't give a referral his answer was "it is very expensive and someone has to pay for it". When ask if it was because they were on CHIPS he said "like I said someone has to pay for it, yes". The way to talked to her and when I asked a question he asked who I was and when I told him their aunt he waved his hand and said "I don't need to talk to you" in a angry voice and I replied "if she gives permission, yes you do". When we left I told them they were not taking him back there and a call was placed and a new doctor will now be seeing him.
I recently visited Dr. Barrera's office in Austin, TX and was greeted and attended very rudely by the receptionist. Patrons should not have to endure any offensive treatment because there was a clerical error due to my insurance. I left the office very disturbed and I feel that no one should be treated this way I am definitely changing Doctors. If you value courtesy and friendliness then you should not go to Dr. Barrera's office.
