Rooney Michael J MD
He operated on me deliberately and knowingly without anaesthesia. He ruined my hearing on purpose. When I was only two, he knowingly and deliberately tortured me which destroyed my hearing, my trust in authority figures, as my bird that doctors care about patients. I now have been maimed and am dealing with the PTSD he (among others) caused me without the benefit of treatment as thanks to him I remember doctors are my enemy. I didn't get a high school education thanks to him. (75% of the grade was on your ability to brad notes, an ability I never had thanks to Dr Rooney knowingly and deliberately costing me my hearing. (I have to see and/or feel people talk due to low frequency hearing loss) so now I look at minimum wage jobs as a "step up" compared to my current job. I will never hear my husband talk if he doesn't touch me first, I will never be able to just listen to another person. I will never attend college. I will never trust another medical professional, I cannot even watch television without closed captioning. Doctor Rooney knowingly and deliberately with malice aforethought

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.
