Dr. Nishino's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Nishino "A 20-year veteran of Reliant Medical Group, pediatrician Dr. Vincent Nishino is starting to see some of the young people he used to treat come back with their own children. "It's very rewarding when a former patient asks me to be the pediatrician for their child. It's kind of their way of saying that they really enjoyed the care they received." As a pediatrician, Dr. Nishino treats children from infancy to their late teenage years. "Each stage has its own unique challenges and rewards," he explains. "It's what makes being a pediatrician special." Over the years, Dr. Nishino has seen many changes in his profession. "The immunizations we give have really cut down on many of the infectious diseases that used to be commonplace. For instance, you hardly see chickenpox anymore, which was very common in the past. Meningitis has also declined significantly, thanks to the Type B vaccine. These have been very important developments for children's health." Dr. Nishino's subspecialty is pediatric endocrinology. "Some children have problems with puberty coming too early or too late, short stature, thyroid difficulties and other issues. I've done a lot of work in dealing with these problems – many of which can often be effectively treated with the right care." Dr. Nishino has always been impressed with the collegiality of the Reliant Medical Group pediatric department. "We really do work great together as a team. From treating patients in our medical centers to doing rounds at the hospital or working as part of our Pediatric Urgent Care services, we all know we can count on each other," he says. The father of two teenagers himself, Dr. Nishino enjoys getting a chance to watch his daughter play soccer and playing golf with his son. "I enjoy playing golf, but my son would be the first to tell you that I have a lot to learn. I'm probably not the first doctor who thinks that playing golf makes medicine look easy.""
