Specialties

Dr. Thomas D Makres 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.

Shouldnt be a doctor

My son is now 14 months old and had to get a circumcision again because it wasent done right the first time. He was asked multiple times if it was fine and was told "yeah nothing is wrong with it". Come to fond out multiple doctors have commented and said it doesnt even look like it has been touched. I am usaully not one to waste my time nd comment but since its a problem with a lot of children and parents I have talked to alike have had the same problem. Also, at this moment in time my child is screaming in misery because he cant pee or poop without it hurting because of an incompetent doctor who doesnt even need his license to practice.

Not for working parents

This office closes early almost everyday. When you don't get off work until evening , you end up in urgent care with a sick child. They do have office hours on Saturday morning, can't always wait until Saturday to take sick kids in though.

Best Peditrician Around

I have been going to Doctor Makres since I was a little girl and now I take my children. He is an excellent doctor. He is also very caring and I have seen that first hand with my brother who is severely disabled. You honestly couldn't ask for a better doctor or staff. You know that he is wonderful when most of his staff have been there for years and years.
