Pediatric Care reviews in Tampa

    We have taken our oldest daughter to Dr. Salud since she was born (she's almost 3 now).  She is very good with our daughter and always makes her feel very comfortable.  It is easy to see that she genuinely cares about our daughter's health.  Probably the most genuine faith we could show in her abilities is the fact that we now take our youngest child to Dr. Salud too!

    First, the doctor there told us that the blood test was essentially mandatory when we have subsequently discovered that it was not required in any fashion.  Second, they failed to run the blood test twice and came up with very inaccurate results that scared us all last night.  We confirmed the next morning with two blood tests with our normal pediatrician that the results from this facility were very faulty. Finally, the bedside manner of the nurses who took the blood was nonexistent.  We will not return here in the future.

    They're great there and we've always been able to get same day appointments.  They offer great urgent care and all the doctors are very competent and friendly. The office is very clean and the nursing staff is amazing and very professional to work with.

    I was unable to get an appointment for all 3 of my children on the same day, so I had my oldest's 6 year old well visit on Tuesday.  I  called over a month in advance for my appointments and then called the day before to confirm and to see if I needed to bring anything to the appointment or to my other appointments on Friday.  When I arrived I had to fill out paperwork and the front desk seemed very flustered and unorganized, but I thought it was just because of school starting.  I waited in the waiting room about 20 minutes with all three of my children, then was called back to see a fill in doctor that was great and he was very professional, but I was told on all my phone calls that I would see Dr. Radhika Ranganathan.  The office was older and not the cleanest, but I didn't want to make any judgements based on that.
     I had my 3 yr olds well visit and 11 month olds well visit scheduled for Friday morning and I was told it would be with the nurse practitioner but I needed shots for my 3 year old school so I said that was fine.  After waking up early to shower, having my husband drive my oldest to school making him a tad late, and feeding and bathing my younger 2 for their appts, I received a call 30 minutes before my appt telling me the doctor would not be in.  I said I have an appt with the nurse practitioner, but they said no I had it with the doctor so she won't be in.  I said when will she be in so I can come then and we went back and forth and they finally gave me the option of coming twice the next week because "they had too many new patients on each day and weren't allotted any more" even though they were canceling on me.  I immediately texted every mom I knew asking for their pediatricians because I needed shots done for school in a couple days.  The professionalism and courtesy I received from other busy offices just reiterated how disorganized and unprofessional this office acted.

    Dr. Lacross is simply the best pediatrician in the area. I know people say that, but we have tried many. I relocated to Tampa for work and had to establish new doctors. We originally went to Pediatric Healthcare Alliance for one of her partners. Visit after visit, we could not get an appointment with her partner and Dr. Lacross became our preferred pediatrician. Eventually, we would get the original Doctor and would ask to just wait for Dr. Lacross. We have since moved again further south into Tampa, and would still drive the 20 miles to Lutz just to see Dr. Lacross. We have tried at least 6 different pediatricians in the South Tampa and Carrollwood area, and we still end up in Lutz just because of Dr. Lacross. She is the only pediatrician I trust with my daughter, and we are not longer looking for better in the Tampa area.

    We love Dr Lipschutz. He always takes the time to listen to any concerns we have. And he always takes the time to talk directly to our son to get his input on the injury/illness and then explains the treatment that will be done. We never feel like we are being rushed or that any concern we have is too small to discuss. The whole office staff is always so friendly. And it's is never difficult to get an appt. I have recommended this dr/practice to many of my friends.

    We have a large family and all our children see doctors in this practice. There are presently three doctors: Allison, Anderson and Fauber. My older sons see Dr. Fauber. The rest of my children see Dr. Allison. We find Dr. Allison to be very friendly and thorough without some of the over-the-top games some pediatricians feel the need to do with children. I really don't want a doctor telling my 3 year old son that he (the doctor) is searching for birds in his (my son's) ears. Many children are SOOO literal that we've had nightmares over incidents like that. No theatrics with Dr. Allison, just calm, compassionate care.
    We arrived a few minutes early for our appointment and didn't wait longer than 5 minutes in the waiting room. Next, a nurse/technician handled all the vitals, the ear and eye exam, any required labs (just blood for us this visit). We only waited a few more minutes (5-10 tops) for Dr. Allison to come in for the exam.
    Once complete, a nurse was right back in for the vaccinations that were due.
    All told, we were in an out in under an hour...which I consider to be outstanding.

    We did not have to wait too long; the waiting room is set up for children with books and DVDs. Dr. Barriga was warm and friendly and, amazing for a doctor, she listened to my concerns and answered my questions. My son liked her; we both had a nice visit. At the end, he received a balloon and a lollipop.

    Dr Gaynor is not our preferred physician for the normal well visits, but we typically get to see him whenever we have a sick child. I appreciate that this practice has multiple doctors and locations, so we can fairly easily get an appointment when needed, He is a little silly for my taste, but my four year old appreciates his antics. And my toddler is enthralled by the stuffed animals that make sounds and are hanging in his examining rooms. He was quick to diagnose pink eye, which was my suspicion, and prescribed eye drops. I had brought a bottle used a few months previously for my other child and he said I would have enough, not to get a new bottle of drops. I was thrilled to avoid the expense. He wrote the prescription anyway, but I didn't need to fill it. Overall, a pleasant experience. On some other visits for sick days, I have had long waits - even with an appointment.

    I brought my daughter in on a Tuesday (this was last year, but I really wanted to let people know how well they handled this). We saw dr. Shaw. He checked her and said, and quot;well, I'm pretty certain it's a little virus, but if she's not feeling a lot better in a day or two, bring her back.and quot; Two days later, she woke up feeling awful--with added symptoms of a stiff neck and headache, so we returned. Dr. Shaw did some blood work in the office, and while we waited (our room door was open), I could hear him stop and pull every doctor there out of examining rooms with patients in them and explain the situation. He showed them the test results and said and quot;you could knock me over with a feather right nowand quot;, to which the other doctors all agreed. All four doctors talked for a minute, then shaw, lipschultz and one other came to our room. They examined my daughter and asked a lot of questions. They told me there was a possibility for meningitis, but the only way to be certain was to go to the hospital to have a spinal tap performed. They said the reason they'd asked so many questions relating to her vaccine schedule is because it would be very rare for a child who followed the schedule to contract meningitis (I had no idea of this). They recommended we go home. They said she would develop horrible lesions if it was in fact meningitis , ones I would notice straight away, and to transport her to the er at that time. Otherwise, she was just sick. The doctors said an unnecessary spinal tap would be horrible to put her thru, and if it was meningitis, there was time to treat her even after the
    lesions appeared. (Btw--it wasn't and she is fine).
    I was a little concerned when everyone was hauled out of rooms with patients, but so glad they felt comfortable consulting in each other and combining their knowledge. They are always kind and listen well there.
