Specialties

Dr. Wayne E Chiavacci has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatric Cardiology

    Pediatric cardiologists are pediatricians with additional, specialized, training in the heart health of your children. When infants are born with congenital heart disease or abnormal hearts, pediatric cardiologists get involved as soon as possible — sometimes before the child is even born.
    Through specific testing, they can diagnose the problem and care for the child throughout their treatment, which could range from medication to surgery and transplants. Other heart conditions they treat include arrhythmias, heart murmurs, holes in the heart and viral infections that affect blood flow.

  • 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.

My children ages NB and 3 years were seen by Dr. Chiavacci for a 2 year period while I lived in Yuma.Dr. Chiavacci was professional, diagnosed my children properly and answered my pointed questions promptly and caringly.

Two Stars

Dr. Chiavacci is rather formulaic in his approach to children. He does not seem to spend enough time with the child to diagnose the problem accurately. I would suggest other pediatricians in Yuma.

Too Much Wasted Time

My son has had conjestion since he was 3 wks old. I had recently moved to AZ & got recommended by the hospital to Chiavacci. I should have never listened! I went in for the 2 mth check up & they didnt even have an area or device to measure my son! They placed him on a sheet on paper & marked the head & foot & measured with measuring tape. To make matters worse my son had really bad conjestion the 2nd reason I had taken him in & Dr. Chiavacci agreed to keep him on the medication all winter. A week later he said was good the go NO CONJESTION! & to stop the nebulizer medication. My son got worse! I took him in a week later & he said oh dear he is very conjested, last month has changed his condition when he took him off the medication. EVEN WITH THE MEDICAL RECORD IN HIS HAND HE COULDNT SEE THAT ONLY **ONE WK** he had told me to stop the meds. The yes conjetion no conjestion game cont for abt another month & a half until he finally decided my son had to see a specialist. &&& of course the lady in charge of that was poorly trained. She set up an app. & didnt advise me so I missed the app & the specialist only came in every so often from Pheonix. When I went in for the referral she said she would call me the next morning I waited 2 wks before I heard back mind you I called in every 2 days. I finally saw the specialist & got answers abt my son's condition. This whole time my son could have been getting treated Dr. Chiavacci & the lady in charge of referrals were wasting my time! To top it off he never gave me information as to how my son was growing, what stages & new things to look for, the WIC office gave me more insite to his development than his own doctor. I would not recommend Dr. Chiavacci to anyone that actually wants information abt their childs development or to have their child actually cared for. If the doctor spent 10 mins with me in one visit that would be much. He mostly came in and did the whole visit in abt 5 mins!!!!
