"Dr. doesn't take her time to listen and properly diagnose. she is never available. doesn't have the decency to ensure that her printer has enough ink in it to properly read the results of your blood test. I don't even think that she takes the test results seriously.\r
Dr. why don't you take a minute before your patient comes into the room and actually read their chart so you know why they are there to see you, oh and how about their name... that would be too much like the proper thing to do... really bad experiences.."
"Dr. Kayaleh has been so wonderful to us. I love all the doctors in the practice, but I was so lucky enough to have Dr. Kayaleh follow my daughter through some extremely tough times. She listens to me, and as a mother, she understands that you know your kids best. She gears her treatment and recommendations to what you want for your child, and I cannot thank her enough or say enough good things about her. "
General Pediatrics is defined simply as the medical care of children and adolescents. It is one of the broadest specialties, delivering care to patients from birth through young adulthood, and encompassing everything from preventive health to the management of acute and chronic illness. Pediatricians care for the physical, emotional, behavioral, developmental, and social problems that affect children and teens.
A general pediatrician has a wide variety of responsibilities, including:
The management and treatment of illnesses and injuries
Discouraging the spread of serious illness in children, through education and vaccination
Monitoring patients' physical and developmental growth
Performing routine health screenings
Promoting a healthy lifestyle
Guiding parents in all areas of parenting, from offering reassurance to giving advice on everything related to their child, such as feeding, safety, and education
Perhaps more than any other patient group, children are products of the environment in which they live. Because of this, pediatricians don't just treat kids -- they treat communities and families as well. They often become advocates for children and for children's rights. General pediatricians are physicians dedicated to the health and well-being of young people.
