Specialties

Dr. William Morocco has the following 2 specialties

  • Adolescent Medicine

    Adolescent specialists are doctors who have advanced training in the health issues that adolescents face. These physicians deal with issues like the onset of puberty, reproductive health, eating disorders, irregular periods, mood changes, drugs and pressures from home and school. For girls entering adulthood, adolescent specialists can act as both pediatrician and gynecologist, so they only have to see one doctor for all their needs.

  • 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.

Long wait, rude staff

Doctor Morocco is a wonderful doctor. He's been my kids' doctor for 9 years. Unfortunately, as the years go by, the wait time has gotten longer, more than once I've been kept waiting for an hour. Today after over 20 minutes of waiting, for the first time, I asked to re-schedule due that my kids had to get to class, I was told they would have to wait until December, (3 months!). And even though the doctor has great bedside manner, his staff doesn't. The last nurse that had to test my son for strep throat, was so careless, that she left him in pain and hurting for a couple of days. I am now in search of a new pediatrician.

An amazing doctor

I am a very "overzealous" mother, to say the least. I trust Dr. Morocco with my three boys. He was born to take care of children. I recommend him to all my friends who are new parents.

My kids choice

We originally started seeing Dr. Morocco at another practice. When he opened his own, I asked my children (ages 12-14) where they wanted to go for medical care. Their answer? "Where is Dr. Morocco going to be? We want to stay with him". He is the best pediatrician I have met. My kids next concern? "Can we still see him when we aren't kids anymore?" :)
