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.
A urologist is a physician who specializes in diagnosing and treating conditions affecting the male reproductive system, as well as the urinary tracts of both males and females.
These doctors cover the kidneys, ureter, urinary bladder, adrenal glands, urethra, and the male reproductive organs which include the testes, epididymis, vas deferens, seminal vesicles, prostate and penis. Some common disorders that urologists treat are urinary tract infections (UTI), stress incontinence, benign prostatic hyperplasia, kidney stones, erectile dysfunction, kidney cancer, prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and cystitis. These urological specialists also perform vasectomies and vasectomy reversals.

I am a pediatrician who is very happy with the care that Dr. De Filippo provides to our patients. My patients and their families have been very pleased with his kind disposition and expert urological evaluation and follow up provided to them. I solely refer to him not because I have to, but because I know my patients will be in great hands in the office, and if necessary, in the OR.
Hi, I'm just a dad thats very disappointed with Dr. Roger e de Filippo. I have seen his awards and read his profile and he may be a very smart doctor academically but he shows very little empathy toward the kids he sees at Childrens Hospital in Los Angeles. I realize that the emergency care may be understaffed, but the nurses, doctors and even security came across as a bit disingenuous. We waited almost 5 hours before being seen while my daughter was in tremendous pain. Please do your best to take care of little children and treat them as people too. Try to make a change at that place.
