I just read some of the reviews and felt compelled to add my own opinion as some people listed ABCD Pediatrics as a 1 star! I am clearly qualified to review their practice as I have used them for years. My six year old daughter's (born 6 wks pre-mature) immune system has been very weak since birth and I have spent ""almost countless"" visits to doctors' offices--both to E. R's and to Specialists. I can honestly write that ABCD Pediatrics provides the best care available! So great that we have always felt comfortable double-checking with them when a Specialist's recommendation didn't sound on target.
We began using ABCD Pediatrics in 2007 when my oldest daughter was about ten months old. We had been referred to them (and Dr. Richard Schlossburg) by a friend who had being using ABCD for years. We had been using another pediatrician in the Stone Oak area but had decided to seek a second opinion when my her ""chronic"" coughing and wheezing continued to worsen. The other practice's doctor repeatedly told us that she was fine...""just suffering from allergies and that she was probably going to become asthmatic."" Shortly after meeting with Dr. Schlossburg, he recognized that her symptoms were not consistent with allergies and asmtha but that of RSV. A brief test confirmed his diagnosis and her new series of breathing treatments began. Her infection was so bad, it had almost progressed into pneumonia.
Our second ""confirmation"" that we had chosen the best practice came a couple of years later...in June 2009. Our second child was born at North Central Baptist Hospital (great place, too) in Stone Oak. Her delivery was a bit more complicated than our first child's, but the delivering docs (also from Stone Oak) didn't see any complications afterwards. The hospital notified ABCD (Dr. Steven Fischer this time) that our daughter had been born and scheduled his visit to examine her. Within minutes of seeing her, he asked us if anyone had checked her collar bone as it appeared to be broken. He was right; the x-ray revealed the bone was clearly broken. We were shocked as she had not cried or showed any other signs of discomfort in her shoulder.
Those that provided a 1 star review, come on! If you truly believe their practice is worthy of a 1 star, I truly believe you must be part of the small population that CAN NEVER BE PLEASED. They are not God; they are just caring doctors providing the best care for our children. In my years of using their office, I have not once had a single visit deserving of a 1 star!!!!
We have used ABCD for years and have always received the best care...from the office staff to the docs. If you are looking for a great pediatrician in San Antonio, please meet with the folks at ABCD Pediatrics. You will be glad you did!
