- 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.

The Doctor is good..... everyone else you deal with couldn't be worse. Forget your appointment time they will get to you whenever because they overbook their days so much so clear your calendar for the day because they couldn't care less about it. The second time we went we left an hour and a half after our appointment which was at 4pm because there were still five patients in front of us... they wouldn't even be open long enough to see us that day. Wasted another day, had to sit in rush hour traffic for an hour to get home with an extremely upset infant. Probably the worst experience we've ever had with a doctors office. Others google reviews reflect similar experiences. ... Good doctor who can't run an efficient office.
Don't ever try reaching this office. They are impossible to get on the phone. We were given the run around picking up a medication and send to an office that wasn't open that was more then an hour away from our home and then they had the nerve to send us into collections for a $25.00 missed visit fee!! In a year we spent over $6000 in medical bills and he put us in collection over $25.00!!!!! We have found another physician!!!
