  • Legal Medicine

    Legal medicine specialists advise on a variety of laws and regulations regarding health care and public health. This include disability claims, hospital law, privacy laws and physicians’ obligations and liabilities. They typically have a medical degree and a law degree so they're able to address specific legal issues that apply to medical professionals, hospitals and clinics.
    Compared to forensic medicine, which deals with determining cause of death in criminal investigations, they deal with issues that impact patient care and they’re also typically involved in assessing illegal substance use in athletes.

  • Pediatrics

    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 wish there were all zeros to give this so called "pediatrician". He clearly has no idea what HIPA is. Besides him personally giving out information about you to other patients, he has misdiagnosed my child more then once. Never gave my child a proper exam to try and diagnose what my child actually had. Basically told me to go to the ER. Called numerous times, no one calls you back. His staff is also rude, and unhelpful. He did NOT care for my child, so I will assure you, he will NOT care about yours either. READ ALL OF HIS REVIEWS!!!

not happy

The drs. Employees have always been wonderful - however - 3 times in the last couple of months she has had an ear infection. He didn't want to hear anything about the urgent care. "only good for old people" .However - script he gave her made her VERY sick because it was too strong with her diabetic med. I had to look it up for myself. Moving on

Bad RUDE doctor and staff

Very high turn around in this office. The had an old staff that had been there for years and they were nice, and very helpful. One by one they all left...must be a good reason for that. I am beginning to see why. The doctor and his wife chased them away. The staff they have now are all rude and do not act like they want to do anything to help you. The lady at the front desk is horrible. My kids hide when its time to check out. She is unfriendly. You need to be friendly to work at a pediatrics office and no body there is friendly. It's like they don't want to work, they act like they don't care. I have a few friends that recommended me to Dr. Lopez and even they agree about that place it is going downhill. It is just like a clinic. Lopez doesn't spend any time at all in the room, he doesn't look my children over, he just says URI and over the counter meds...I agree with the no meds unless needed that's not my problem, my problem is the staff and him. I would not recommend him at all. Also he has his kids there daily after school, they are loud, argue, undiciplined children, they walk in the room when the doctor is talking to me. It is a very unprofessional office. I have changed my kids to Dr. Ahmed in Port Orange along with my friends that originally recommended him.
