Specialties

Dr. Barbara L Korthamar has the following 1 specialty

  • Pediatrics

    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.

Amazing!

I have gone through 3 doctors in 5 months here in Sunnyvale. I'm not a picky person by nature, I understand how busy doctors are and I don't take personally when they maybe rushed from time to time or if they forget small things we discussed. But when they habitually forget things, tell me contradictory information, confuse which of my kids have conditions, particularly when my son has a condition, its frustrating. Finally I found Dr. Korthamar. She spent time getting to know my kids, she was gentle, she listened to everything I said!! Without interrupting me!! She was thorough with my kids and willing to listen to my ideas. When she offered her medical opinion it was not condescending. She talked with me for awhile, and was genuinely curious about our background and such. I'm so happy I finally found a doctor here who my kids can grow up with!

My grown daughter (with her own daughter now) started going to Dr. Korthamar when she was an infant. We always trusted her diagnosis and thoroughness! Her recommendations to other doctors, when necessary, always matched her high standards and ethics.
