My daughter saw a female Dr. today. The Dr. was very rude! She didn't knock before entering the room and once she entered, she didn't introduce herself or great us in a friendly way. She began by asking why my daughter had gained so much weight. She is an average height and weight for her age but the Dr. didn't consider this; only looked at her records and questioned the weight. This is a very poor way to start especially with so many girls in this age range suffering from poor self esteem and eating disorders. The Dr. also argued with me over a shot that she thought my daughter should be receiving. The shot is recommended but is not required and is a personal choice. We will be switching Dr. offices. Wanted to let others know before they have the same poor experience we had.

Receptionists have no phone skills or customer service skils and the doctors need to be reminded of the oath they took before they took on their practice

I have a 4 week old daughter she came down with some virus going around. Dr. Goel is my other two kids pediatrician. But the odd thing is that i have only met Dr. Goel maybe twice. Anyways I called in for my daughter to be seen and the receptionist was really rude told me they would put me on a waiting list. I asked if i caould make the app. a for sure for the next day and she said no that i had to call that same day and if i was lucky to get an app. I told her the age of my baby and she said very rudely to take her to the hospital instead.l I will never take my children there again! I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS DOCTOR TO ANY ONE!!!
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.
