I LOVE Dr. Harrison and my child has been going here since he was 2 weeks old and he is now 6 months old. However, the new nurse that they have is extremely rude. I was in the office on Friday July 21, 2017 around 430 pm and when she called my child back she did not greet us. She was very rude with asking the general "why are you here questions". After our visit with Dr. Harrison, which is always GREAT. I changed my child's diaper and put it in a plastic bag. Per the signs in the exam room: "Please do not throw diapers away in the trash, ask for assistance"; I asked the same nurse could I give her the diaper. She very rudely said to me "Oh no, you have to take that with you we don't have anywhere to put it". In the past the nurses has taken diapers with no hesitation. I don't know why the signs are up if nurses do not want to take the diapers. This lady was beyond rude. And when you are dealing with a sick child you do not want to have to deal with someone's nasty attitude as well. Someone should explain to her what the procedure is with diapers at a pediatric facility....because there will always be diapers to be disposed of. I also called the office manger Monday 7/24/17 and left a message. I haven't received a call back yet.

I would highly recommend Dr. Shilpesh Patel for your internist and cardiologist. He is one of the few doctors who practices both specialties so I can use him for my primary care and also for my cardiologist. He saved my life 10 years ago when I was having a heart attack. And now he is treating my diabetes , my high cholesterol, my high blood pressure, my arthritis and even my anxiety. I feel blessed to have him as my doctor and have never felt better about my health.

Dr. Shilpesh Patel is one of the best physicians I have ever come across. I had very difficult to control diabetes and high blood pressure that several other doctors could not control properly. Dr. S Patel had my conditions under excellent control within a matter of 3 months. He explains things very well and truly cares about my well being. He is the “go-to-doctor” in the region for patients with difficult and challenging medical problems.

Dr. S Patel is the smartest physician that I have found. He trained at Johns Hopkins and Harvard and really knows his stuff. He takes time to explain my conditions and never seems in a rush. I feel he has improved my health immensely and gave me more years to live. You can’t ask for more from your doctor.
Tips & Advices
A child should see his or her pediatrician frequently during the first few years. Once the child reaches age 3, parents should schedule a doctor's visit at least once per year. Before that, however, the American Academy of Pediatrics suggests parents arrange visits according to the following schedule:
  • 2 to 5 days old
  • 1 month old
  • 4 months old
  • 6 months old
  • 9 months old
  • 12 months old
  • 15 months old
  • 24 months old (2 years)
  • 30 months old (2.5 years)
No, parents should call 911, an emergency physician, or a pediatric emergency physician if a child suffers an acute illness or injuries. Doctors in these fields are more qualified than pediatricians to handle emergency situations.
A well-visit is a routine visit with a pediatrician to track a child's development, discuss medical or emotional concerns, and receive immunizations and medical advice.
Yes, pediatricians provide immunizations for infants and children up through 21 years.
No, pediatricians do not have to be board certified.They're only required to have a state license. However, certification indicates a dedication to studying pediatrics beyond the requirements.
