Dr. Hemant B Upadhyaya, MD
The doctor is perfectly nice. BUT.His office people are horrible. They do not even know which health insurance they accept. They told us they accept our insurance, but they were wrong. So then we get a bill for $5000 and we are confused. After dozens of wasted hours talking to our insurance we finally figure out the problem. They were wrong. They don't accept our insurance.But that doesn't stop them. They pursue us for payment for 9 months, even though the mistake is theirs. Our next step is lawsuit. This doctor needs to start paying attention to all aspects of his business, because this is not the way to treat mothers and children.
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.
