Chang, Michael A, MD
Dr Chang walked in interrupting me and interrupted me the whole five min first visit. Then stated he could not help me after having me stand on tip toe and walk on heels. He preceded to walk out of the room as I started to cry because I had so many questions to ask him. No professionalism whatsoever. P.S. My leg, hips, and lower stomach is all numb for the last three months and continues to travel to other leg.

I have been a patient of Dr. Lyzenchuk for over 7 years now and he and his staff Mary and Roberta have always done what they could to take care of me and my cronic illness. I feel blessed to have found a PCP who knew when it was time to step it up and referred me to specialists. Thank you Quailty care, all the girls behind the desk and the people behind the scenes.A blessed patient: Diana Moross

My children had their well-child check at YPA with Dr. Simms last week. He was respectful, attentive and fun with the children. We did not have any major concerns, but he treated all of our concerns sincerely with a suggestion/recommendation for action.

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.
