Dr. Shakti K Matta 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.

Dr Matta's office used to be pretty good and would get us in relatively quickly without any problems in the past and the care used to be decent. As time went on the level of care was mediocre at best and kind of like you were getting herded through the line. My children are usually healthy and don't very often need to go to the Dr.. I recently called because my child was having some problems and needed to be seen. They told me that since it had been so long since he had been in that he couldn't be seen ever. I was confused and wanted clarification as I have never had this problem before and was not offered any other explanation than that. So much for caring about your patients. I know several other people that have bee patients and say the care is less than mediocre and the overall experience fell extremely short of any expectations. Would never recommend them to anyone!
I was happy with staff and Dr at first, but Dr was eventually very rude, and we found another Dr. He is not open to anything that falls outside the norm of western medicine, including the idea of food sensitivities (because it is hard to get clear test results for them, so they must not be real). That part I did not mind so much, but I refuse to be treated like that by anyone.
