Specialties

Dr. Susan E Borba 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.

Terrific for young teens

My 13 year old daughter is a patient of Dr. Borba and I couldn't be happier with the way she relates to both of us. It is obvious she has experience with young, active, athletic teens. Dr. Borba is easy to talk to and can communicate clearly with my daughter. She obviously understands all health issues with young teen girls and has the ability to speak with them at their level. The advice she gives my daughter (and me) is well thought out and given in a way that is easy to understand and follow.

Great Doctor & Staff

We had not chosen a pediatrician when our son was born. Thankfully, Dr. Borba was the pediatrician on call when he arrived. She has taken care of our baby for the last 2 years and when our daughter was born we knew she would be her doctor too. Nicole is the absolute best at vaccinations and taking vitals, even on fussy kids. Four stars all the way.
