Specialties

Dr. Wallace A Gleason Jr 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.

Poor experience with supposed to be an experienced doctor.

He is interested more in Educating his trainee either medical students or residents than educating the patient. He sends them to the room to examine patients and then he comes to spend less than 5 minutes with the patient , not interested to ask more details or give detailed answers about his diagnosis. on one of my visits I requested to see him and not the medical student , he came to the room and was very upset lecturing me that " this is an educational institution and I have no right to request no medical students or residents to examine me first before him" Very arrogant, little talk , poor bedside manners, pushing for investigations that don't seen needed especially when he is not certain of the diagnosis. my gut feelings that he is doing the investigations for the sake of educational value to his students.
