Dr. Saadia A Zaheer 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.

My daughter has been to Zaheer Pediatric Associates a number of times since birth. We have since left the practice. Dr. Zaheer, Dr. Sterling and the Nurse Practioner are all very kind and caring. However, I felt like I was always rushed in and rushed out. Her staff is terrible about returning phone calls or following up regarding test results. There were times that I would call in just to get an answer to a question and was told numerous times the doctor would call me back. No one called me back. I was told they would be open on a Saturday until noon. I called at 11am to get my daughter an appointment and they were gone for the day. My daughter was admitted to the hospital by a different doctor that day. We have switched and are much happier with our new doctor.
Dr. Zaheer is the best. We relocated this year and I am trying to find a good peds doc and so far I have not been as lucky as when I was first referred to Dr. Zaheer. She was always attentive, spoke to me and was very comforting at every appointment with my two children. A good pediatrician is worth their weight in gold!
