Specialties

Dr. Uwe Blecker has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

Really?

The guy spent less than 5 minutes with us and sat at his computer the whole time. He didn't touch my child. Told us we needed a scope. Guess that's where he makes his money. .

Didn't care about Serious Heart and Lung Defects

He entered the room, introduced himself to me and didn't even talk to my 16 yr old daughter - the patient! He was arrogant and didn't even ask about my daughter's medical history! There was my daughter, sitting in a motorized wheelchair and on oxygen and he didn't ask ANY medical questions. Finally he went over her long list of meds that my daughter is on and started asking me WHY is she on each med - almost accusingly. After I finally had a chance to tell him briefly about her 5 heart surgeries, lung bleeds, strokes, etc, he did a brief exam and said, "We have to do an endoscope". I asked him if she would have to be intubated and he said "of course!" My daughter asked me what that meant and I started to say something about the tube in her throat to protect her airway and she started to cry. Dr. Blecker acted like he didn't care, left the room and had the nurse come back with an appointment at TMC for the endoscope. He never even asked who my daughter's cardiologist was and never intended on contacting him. I called my daughter's cardiologist who said that he really preferred another peds GI doctor so we dropped Dr. Blecker and didn't go back. My daughter's cardiologist has always said that if she ever needed any procedure done, she should be at UMC because that's where the pediatric cardiologists are and they would be able to get to her fast just in case - and she has had several near-fatal situations - all of which I told Dr. Blecker - which he just blew off.
