Dr. Sheila M Guelda has the following 2 specialties
- Adolescent Medicine
Adolescent specialists are doctors who have advanced training in the health issues that adolescents face. These physicians deal with issues like the onset of puberty, reproductive health, eating disorders, irregular periods, mood changes, drugs and pressures from home and school. For girls entering adulthood, adolescent specialists can act as both pediatrician and gynecologist, so they only have to see one doctor for all their needs.
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.

Poorly staffed office- mismanaged front desk- completely disorganized. They set up an in-network procedure-which cost $1K out of pocket. The procedure was completely free on my plan- had it been set up elsewhere - they didn't bother checking - and they do this daily. They could have cared less when I told them. & Sadly- absolutely NO follow up what-so-ever from the doctor, which shows how little she cares for patients.
This woman has the bedside manners of a moldy wet towel. She is rude, ignorant, and inconsiderate of any concerns a young parent would have. I'd rather spend my mornings at the dmv, more pleasant staff and you will certainly be out of there faster than any appointment I've had in her office. She should take that wrinkly old scowl and attitude of hers and get out of the medical practice. She should not be working with children, or decent human beings. I recommend used car salesman. If she's going to be sucking people of their money, lieing to Them and treating them like crap, don't bring their children into it.
I don't know where to begin Dr Guelda is the rudest most uncaring person there is all she cares about is money you ask her a simple question about your daughters health and she is very rude doesn't know how to give you a straight answer she is always rushing through my kids appt I feel like she doesn't care anymore I switched doctors I wouldn't recommend Dr Guelda to anyone all she cares about is money, herself ( not others).
My son had 40% and 60% hearing loss due to chronic ear infections that my previous Pediatrician would only treat with antibiotics. With in two weeks of his first initial visit with Dr. Guelda and her team my son had surgery, a sleep study, and his andoids and tonsils removed. He has been breathing better, sleeping well and can no speak full sentences when prior to this miracle team including Dr. Shotts at Advanced EMT my son could not say more than a few words at a time. I absolutely recommend this pediatrician to any one. If my son is sick I get an appointment that morning even if I leave a message on the Voice mail that night! Thank you so much!!!!!!!!
