Dr. Barbara I Petty 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.

My daughter recently got sick. She lost a lot of blood and needed to see a physician right away. My wife made an urgent appointment and luckily, we met Dr. Petty. I haven't met Dr. Petty in person but the way she cared about her patients surprised me significantly. Due to my daughter's serious situation, Dr. Petty took blood test, prescribed medications like many other physicians would do. But that night at 9pm she called us to check our daughter's status and the next three days she kept calling to see if our daughter gets better. It is hard or impossible these days to find a Doctor like her. Most of them just touch patients a few times, rushed them out of the office and send a big bill. I wish other Doctors can learn what Dr. Petty has done for her patients as a model to improve their practice. You may not find any other Doctors with skills, dedications and caring like Dr. Petty. Thank you so much, Dr. Petty.
I normally have great experiences with Sea View Pediatrics; however, when my son was having issues with his ears, and our regular doctor (Dr Natori) was booked, we took the first available appointment with Dr Petty. Unfortunately, it might have been a better experience to wait another day and see Natori. We arrived promptly at 9:15am to be ready for our 9:30am appoint. At 9:50am, I asked the receptionist if we were going to go back to see the doctor. (At this point, there had been four other children who have come in after us and gone back to their respective doctor). After pointing out that we were still in the waiting room 20 minutes after our appointment should have started, the NP finally took us back to the room. We proceeded to wait another 30 minutes before the doctor came into the room at 10:20. She proceeded to ask me questions about my son's ears and gave me advice the was opposite of what the Sea View Pediatric nurse line had given me the day prior. After I asked why the advice between the two days was so different, I was given an attitude for the rest of the appointment. I was spoken down to, asking why I hadn't given our son ear drops (antibiotics) yet. I explained to her that is why we are at the appointment... we simply do not have antibiotics sitting around our home. I refuse to have my son seen by her again. The attitude she displayed was completely unprofessional. I would recommend Sea View, but I would not recommend Dr Petty
