Do NOT go to this place ~ the office staff will NOT go out of their way to help you. The wait time to see Dr. Sheikh is at least 2 hours, if not more. He can't seem to keep employees nor Physicians Assistants for more than a few months at a time. If you try to get them to actually do something extra, they will tell you if you want immediate care, go to the E.R. REALLY? That certainly isn't compassionate in my book. I have switched, will never go back, will never recommend this guy to ANYONE, and will forward along horror stories about how this doctor almost killed several people because he doesn't have the time to spend with patients he is spreading himself so thin. Just writes another script....unbelievable. He needs to be investigated by the American Medical Association, Better Business Bureau, all the insurance companies that he bills (many times double bills and falsely bills patients' insurance). He needs to go back where he came from - he cannot cut it here in America. They would not let me post this without giving at least a 1 star rating, which this doctor's office doesn't deserve at all.
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.
