Specialties

Dr. Vimla Menon has the following 3 specialties

  • 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.

  • Allergy & Immunology
  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Pediatric Immunology

Dr. Vimla Menon was extremely helpful in diagnosing my toddler's allergies. She provided online support groups and followed up after visits to make sure she was doing well. All medications given were proven effective and I have full confidence in her and have recommended her to everyone! Billing department is rather cranky though.

PERSONALITY SUCKS

TERRIBLE office staff, TERRIBLE doctors. Cold, heartless people. Only care about the money. Sure you will get well, with the help of prednisone that many people do not know the side effects, however this masks what is really going on. They RX this like candy. DO NOT GO HERE. Money hungry people with TERRIBLE office staff, especially the "nurse manager", Lisa. She has no credentials for this position at all.
