Dr. Alan J Barton has the following 1 specialty
A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Dr. Barton was a very good Dr. at the beginning with my daughter (now 10 months old). She started tugging at her ear consistently so I brought her in for an apt. Which we were seen by the Nurse practicioner Tracy Osbourne. She stated that my daughter had an ear infection so she prescribed her w/ antibiotics. My daughter was on that for about a week util she started getting really congested and her breathing was very weezy so I called them and they got me in that day which was good. Well, they notified me that she has RSV. They told me there was nothing they could do about that besides to just give her some childrens benedryl to make her more comfortable and too also stop giving her the antibiotics b/c they said her ear infection cleared up. Exactly 1 day later she broke out with a horrible rash. I brought her in again and they told me that, that comes with the RSV. First it's congestion, than rash, than a fever will occur and justy continue to give her antibiotics. Well, i did some research and a rash does not follow under the RSV catagory. So, i called my family Dr. and she notified me that was i was describing was not a rash it was an allergic reaction. At this point her entire body was covered in this. Her ears, eys lids, back, hands, feet, etc; she told me i needed to take her to the er asap.We did and it was a delayed allergic reation to the antibiotics she was on for her ear infection. When i contacted Dr. Barton about this he pretty much initiated that i was over reacting and didn't seem to care. To me, he got lazy and was not paying attention to my daughter. Even though i asked him before hand if this rash could be from the antibiotics. He assured me it wasn't! So, i trusted him & that's where it got me!
my son has gone to dr. barton twice now with pneumonia, the first at 18 months old. he was turned away because his insurance was termed. now, 3 months later, and after his insurance was reinstated, i took him in due to a smoker-like cough. dr. barton insisted there was nothing there. he all but told me it was just in my head that there was something wrong. fed up with my concerns not being taken seriously, i took him to a different pediatrician. he was diagnosed for the second time with pneumonia.
I first switched my son to Dr. Barton from Dr. Tariq because she was accusing me of starving him and doing everything wrong when all i did was follow her advice. Initally, I was very very happy with Dr. Barton because he would sit and talk with me about everything that was going on. Lately, though, my son (13 months) will not eat anything, basically existing on water and milk all day with like a bite or 2 here or there of food. I've been having problems like this ever since i started with baby food. I bring this up at every visit, but it just seems to get swept under the rug. I'm so worried my son will starve and no one is helping me!
