Dr. Syed M Amer has the following 1 specialty
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.

Honestly, I wouldn't know if Dr. Amer is a good doctor or not. My daughter is 4 years old. She has been one of his patients for 4 years, and we have NEVER seen him. Not one time. I wouldn't know him if he walked up to me. Once I asked the lady that works in the front if I could see him, and she was very rude and said he had multiple practices and that it would take a long time before we could see him. I will be moving my daughter somewhere else ASAP!
Dr. Amer has been my children's doctor for almost 15 years and I would never think of taking them anywhere else. He always remembers the kids names, and always makes us feel like we are important! My oldest had breathing problems as a infant and he is the only doctor in this area that could give me a proper diagnosis. He is great doctor!!!
