Dr. Vasanth B Baliga 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.

I have a 12 yr old who has been going to Dr. Baliga since we moved to the area 8 yrs ago and a 4 yr. old. Dr. Baliga always takes time with us whether it is a well child visit or a sick appt. He answers my questions and explains things so that I can understand it. He never dismisses anything that you ask about. His children go to the same school as my oldest and he gives us tips and insights on what to expect each year and how to be successful that particular year. Before the office added the online appt. option, it would take a long time to get through on the phone (if you were calling for a sick appt for that day). Once I go through, I would always receive a call back from the nurse within 20 minutes and they would usually see me as soon as I could get there. They have moved to the online appt/request option and they call you back fast with that as well. It eliminates that first call and the long wait to get through to a live person.I gave the office staff a 3 only because of his receptionist. She is not pleasant and she treats you as if you are bothering her when you arrive at the desk- especially if you do not have an appt. The nurses and lab techs are all extreely professional, courteous and caring. I would give them all 4 stars, but I would give the front desk girl a 1! Luckily Dr. Baliga and his nurses make up for her.
