Specialties

Dr. Shelia D Ankrah has the following 1 specialty

  • 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.

Great doctor!

Although we moved a bit far from the area we kept Dr. Ankrah as our pediatrician because she is really wonderful. Aside from being an excellent doctor, she has fantastic bed manners and goes out of her way to accommodate the patient and the family. She always had a smile on and has a great sense of humor, which also helps! I highly recommend her!!

Excellent doctor, has been seeing my son for three years

Dr. Ankrah is a wonderful doctor. I like how she doesn't immediately go to meds and she's very conservative with her prescriptions. I like to err on the side of "see what happens" vs. over prescribing and it seems she's aligned with that. Very caring. My child is anxious around people outside of the family but she puts him at ease.

The go to Dr

Dr Ankrah is grrreeeeat!! She is very responsive, listens, caring, and I feel very comfortable with her. When I found out that I was having another child, it was undeniable who her pediatrician would be, and that will soon be a year ago! She is great with both my son and daughter. I love the fact that I have someone that I can have full confidence that she knows what is best for my children's health and I don't have to worry. So DON'T think twice about choosing a pediatrician....DR ANKRAH all the way! And I am a verrry picky mother when it comes to my kids, so it takes alot to impress and she did it at hello when she greeted my son!

We love Dr. Ankrah

Our twins were 26 week preemies and have had various medical needs since birth. Dr. Ankrah has a great bedside manner, takes a lot of time with us, and really cares about our twins. She goes out of her way to make sure they are getting the care they need, even calling me personally on occasion. We couldn't ask for a better, more caring doctor!
