Specialties

Dr. Stephen Abelowitz 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.

Dr. Abelowitz is an extremely knowledgeable and caring doctor. I have two year old twins, and thanks to Dr. Abelowitz, he diagnosed my son with mild Cerebral Palsy at 6 weeks old. This allowed us to do early intervention therapies and he is currently showing very little signs of CP. I am so grateful to him for knowing that something was not right;had we waited and not diagnosed it and not had therapies, my little man would not be where he is today. Dr. Abelowitz definitely cares and is a top notch doctor. We recently had our two year well checkup, and I was able to tell him that my son had been released from physical therapy and I could see he was genuinely happy and thankful for my son. Bottom line, he is an amazing doctor as well as the other doctors that work in the practice. I have never had an issue getting an appointment. Plus, they areopen on the weekends! Another plus given that kids always tend to get sick on the weekend!

Very Thorough and Knowledgeable Dr.

We are new in town and a dear friend recommended this Dr. to us for our 3 children. We couldn't be happier, he spent time with us explaining all the changes my son will go through now that he's 13 and he was very thorough with all the checkups, explanations and giving us referrals for other Dr.s in the area (dentist, ophthalmologists, etc.). Very happy to be here!

Don't trust this doctor with your credit card

Coastal Kids is a greedy practice - if you go to this doctor's offices (they have 3, it's a bit of a factory) than make sure you don't give them your credit card or you may be over billed like I was.

Excellent, excellent, excellent!

We have three children and Dr. Abelowitz has cared for all of them. He has excellent knowledge of any issue we've had with our children, whether it be a serious issue, or a more mild issue, and he really cares. He's been on the phone with us multiple times on a Sunday when one of our children had severe stomach flu just to make sure she wasn't dehydrated, trying to keep us out of CHOC. We have also seen other Dr.'s in his practice that are good, but I wanted to add that he runs the most on time of any of the other Dr.'s we've seen.
