Chediak is a freak- I know several parents who have used him and he is absolutely obsessed with strict dicsipline. I saw him ONCE to ask about my son's development at 18 months and he told me to go to home depot, buy a piece of plywood drill holes in it and make a paddle. WTH?! I do spank our children on RARE occasion, but if you think you need an object to get the job done, you obviously need to try something else like talking or positive reinforcement.

Dr. lopez is the worst quack there is. He doesn't listen to the larents at all. He almost caysed my sons death because he wouldnt listen to me. I changex doctors and my son was hospitalized then life flighted to cardinal glennon. If i wouldn't of changed doctors my son would have passed away because lopez is shity. He is one of the many that graduated the lowest 50% of the doctors. Stay far away.

Yes Dr. Lopez, seemed for the most part a good Doctor up until a year ago. He did have an amazing FNP Lito, who would listen to the parents concerns then get to the bottom of it. Then once again seemed as tho there was a huge upset in the office and a hole new round of staff came in again.
What ever has happened that office has changed the way Looez cares not only for his patients but for the parents concerns as well.
The wait times anymore are observed you get there 15 min before your appointment with an ill child ( not a well visit) and then you wait two hours in a room for him to come in. GET MORE STAFF LOPEZ!
The staff maybe friendly to your face, yet you can hear some of the girls talking smack right out side the patient doors! Then you have the referral girl Heidi flat out lie to you over and over again.
Here is an example, while waiting in a pre-approval on a medications for a child we were told on this could take weeks even tho the child may need the medication. So as a parent I myself called the insurance company explained the situation, submitted myself the clinical's and had the approval in one day!!!!!!!!
Then to do a recheck in two to three weeks and flat out was lied to to my face by the doctor..... He had no idea at all the child was and had been on the medication already then stated oh well yes I called straight up myself to the higher ups and said no matter what this child needs this medication ASAP! Mind you when he came in had no idea at all he was even on so called medication nor did his staff even have the prescription in copied in the chart. IF YOUR GOING TO LIE TO A PARENT PLEASE DO IT TO SOMEONE WHO HAS NO BRAINS! NOR ONE WHO WILL FOLLOW UP RIGHT BEHIND YOU, for the sake of a child.
Plus not all who are receiving state aid are worthless, uneducated people.... Some do have hard times.
There is also one nurse there I believe her name to be Crystal walks in to room two children completely falsified information on a legal. Medical chart.... Two charts two children different ages and sex's yet puts information on the chart wrong such a big difference. Then states and wrights down she did all the vitals when in fact she had NOT! Then when the doctor walks in states well blood pressure, temp, and pulse all looks good. EXCUSE ME NONE WAS EVER TAKEN!!!!! In the past year ( and looks like more so by the treads on here) the office has turned into one big joke!
Already have been searching for new Doctors to take in my two children. Sad very sad..... Such a unprofessional office to say the least!!!!!!

Chediak is a great DR. He saved my son when he was born.. He also knew more than any other Dr around here about DMD that both my sons have. He is great :)

Dr. Chediak, the smartest pediatrician in Marion? What a joke! He almost killed a niece of mine by refusing to write an order for an x-ray even though my brother and sister in law begged for one. My brother took her to the ER and she ended up having double pneumonia. The guy is so full of himself, since he lost the weight he has no problem telling parents and children they are fat! His bedside manner is horrible, he has the worst God-complex of any doctor I have ever met. Dr. Lopez is great, but wouldn't allow him to do a circumcision on my son. He doesn't numb the area before snipping. His office waiting room is separated for sick kids and well kids which is commendable. Dr. Reddy is the way to go,
Fyi-local anesthesia for circumcision was not common practice and have seen a few done with none at all. It's something they've just started using. The babies cry either way. Trust me, none of the adult men walking around had anything for pain and they are okay.

Dr. Lopez saved my son's life. We saw a doctor that came highly recommended in Carbondale, and she pretty much told us we were crazy and nothing was wrong with our infant son. Mother's intuition kicked in and we switched to Lopez. He immediately sent us to STL to see specialists and helped us get our sons chronic medical problems under control. His office is very busy, and the wait times are more long than normal, however, they never fail to work us in if we are in need. We have seen Chediak & Reddy both, and although they are ok Lopez is who i chose to see. He is wonderful with my children. Every doctor is going to have their faults, and no one is perfect.
