- Pediatric Gastroenterology
Pediatric gastroenterologists can treat a variety of diseases and conditions in infants and children related to their liver, pancreas or intestines. If your child has severe or recurrent abdominal pain, constipation or diarrhea, a pediatric gastroenterologist can help you get to the bottom of it. They can also help identify the many possible causes of failure to thrive in infants.
Other common conditions they treat include Crohn's Disease, inflammatory bowel disease, liver disease, short gut syndrome and hepatitis C, as well as nutritional disorders like celiac disease and lactose intolerance. In order to diagnose and treat your child’s condition, gastroenterologists can perform colonoscopies and other diagnostic testing before deciding on the best treatment plan.
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.

It was my first visit with Dr.Rabinowitz and I was really impressed. His bed side manners were great compared to a few other GIs I've taken my daughter too they are usually cold like ice and he is very knowledgable. We went through my daughters history. He got right down to it started making a plan, naming exams we needed to do for her and etc. for once I felt like I was on the same page with a GI. I know this Is only the first appointment but I finally feel like I'm headed towards some answers.
This Dr is very knowledgeable and great diagnostician. However, it does not excuse him from being condescending, rude and disrespectful. I was a fan of his for many years until he dismissed me abruptly during a visit with my children. Zero bedside manner and very arrogant. The office environment is not pleasant as well.
Dr Rabinowitz called my childs pharmacist and arranged for special prescriptions to be filled out and delivered to our house. He diagnosed her disease after multiple doctors could not do so and brought her back from what looked like a bleak situation. He truly went above and beyond for our family and we will always feel indebted to him.
