Specialties

Dr. Vivien L Pacold has the following 2 specialties

  • General Practice

    A general practitioner is similar to a family practitioner in that they treat patients of all ages with a variety of health concerns. These doctors treat everyday ailments, some acute and chronic diseases, and also provid health checkups, physicals, inoculations and preventative care.
    General practitioners differ from family practitioners because they are not required to complete an additional residency in family medicine after completing their medical school residency. Like family practitioners, general practitioners will also provide referrals to patients who are in need of a specialist.

  • 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.

Horrible people

I couldn't get an appointment to be seen unless I went in on Thursday between 9 and 12 to fill out paperwork. Since I work this time was not convenient for me. They were unwilling to see me on a different day. Changing Doctors!!

no email address

I was told I could fax the form but when I ask to send it by email they stated the office doesn't have one. This was in regards to completing a foreign visa phyiscal.

Good doctor but rude front office staff

I have been with doctor Pacold since I was a child I am now in my 20's. Every time I make an appointment it's at least a month out... The doctor herself is friendly and good at her job but the front office staff makes the experience unpleasant.

Great Doctor

I rarely need a doctor but am so glad she's there if I do. She's very professional, a very good listener, and knowledgeable about the kinds of natural health approaches that interest me, like improved diet and herbs.
