Dr. Benjamin A Brooks has the following 2 specialties
- Adolescent Medicine
Adolescent specialists are doctors who have advanced training in the health issues that adolescents face. These physicians deal with issues like the onset of puberty, reproductive health, eating disorders, irregular periods, mood changes, drugs and pressures from home and school. For girls entering adulthood, adolescent specialists can act as both pediatrician and gynecologist, so they only have to see one doctor for all their needs.
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.

I simply can't express enough what Dr. Brooks means to our family. My children have been seeing Dr. Brooks for nine years. He has covered everything from "why tummies hurt" to "why is my body doing these things". He has gently and matter of factly seen my children toddlerhood through early adolescense and puberty. If there is a natural alternative to prescription medications (particularly antibiotics) he always has us try that first. He has taught me so many ways to let my children's bodies do what God intended - to heal themselves. He is everything a pediatrician should be and more. He is caring, compassionate, thorough, talented and so very attentive during appointments. He always makes us feel like there's no one else in the office and that his complete attention is focused on us. What more could you ask? And on top of that, he has the best staff I've ever seen. If you're looking for a pediatrician, there's no one better in Decatur or for several counties around. Dr. Brooks is "the real deal"!!
