Specialties

Dr. Sandra G Amaral has the following 3 specialties

  • Pediatric Nephrology
  • 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.

Misdiagnosis

Approximately 4, nearly 5 years ago 2008, I was diagnosed with Minimal Change and IgA Nephropathy and was placed on three drugs. Enalapril, Azathioprine, and Micardis. I spent the rest of those years going from doctor to doctor looking for help after the death of my mother 2010. I finally found help this year. 2012. Dr. Green of Shand's Pediatric Nephrology. Upon his request I had a second biopsy done. He retrieved the notes and tissue samples from Emory during that time. Upon checking my samples from both biopsy's it was discovered that the previous diseases had been under MISDIAGNOSIS. IgA Nephropathy was never present in either sample. Only Minimal Change in the first sample. Due to this MISDIAGNOSIS I have been banned from any military work at all. The only career I had ever asked for and dreamed of. Now I am 4F forever disqualified from my goal. Thanks alot, Doc. PS:Doctor Green has been studying both disease for over 30 years. Just so ya know.
