Dr. Sharon Kaminer has the following 2 specialties
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.
- Pediatric Cardiology
Pediatric cardiologists are pediatricians with additional, specialized, training in the heart health of your children. When infants are born with congenital heart disease or abnormal hearts, pediatric cardiologists get involved as soon as possible — sometimes before the child is even born.
Through specific testing, they can diagnose the problem and care for the child throughout their treatment, which could range from medication to surgery and transplants. Other heart conditions they treat include arrhythmias, heart murmurs, holes in the heart and viral infections that affect blood flow.

Dr. Kaminer sees my 3-year-old grandson for ASD. She has always been wonderful and patient with him. She is very attentive to both parents as well as me, the Grandma at each visit. She even pays attention to his twin brother so he will not feel left out. She patiently answers all of our questions and is very attentive to all of our concerns at each visit. Thankful for her.
Dr. Kaminer has horrible bedside manner. She was rude and condescending and my 8yr old son(her patient) even said to me when she left the room "Mom, she seems really mean". I really don't like to report this, however, Dr Kaminer is actually employed in the same Palmetto Health network that I am employed, and she clearly does not uphold and work by our company's vision and standards for our patients. Time to retire, Dr. Kaminer!!
She was dismissive, condescending, and had the worst bedside manner of any pediatric specialist I have seen. She made our ten year old feel as if he was doing something wrong. We were very close to leaving the office during our visit. We are personally offended by her and would strongly suggest not bothering to make an appointment with her. In the meantime, as soon as we get our sons health problems under control, we will be contacting anyone that will listen about her unprofessional, and awful behavior.
Dr. Kaminer is above all else a highly qualified and respected practionier in her field of medicine. In all my encounters with her, she remains professional, caring, attentive, and knowledgeable in her area of expertise. She is one of only a few doctors that has provided me with second and third opinions to help in decisions regarding my health care. I have the utmost respect for her and her practice and would highly recommend her to any parents who have children with congenital or othe heart issues.
