Specialties

Dr. Bess K Raker 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.

An excellent MD

Dr. Raker is smart and has a fabulous bedside manner. The best with follow through. My kids love her. She's seen them since they were born. She is always accessible by phone, and takes time with each and every patient and parent. We feel so fortunate to have her in our lives.

Five Stars

Dr. Raker has been our Pediatrician for over 4 years now. She oversees both of our girls and I must say she is excellent at what she does. She was there to check us out of the hospital and has been there every visit for our kids. I would recommend her to anyone seeking a Pediatrician.

AMAZING!

Bess Raker is the best thing since sliced bread! She has been an amazing part of our "pediatric history" If not for her slick diagnostic skills, my daughter would not have been diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes as early as she was, which helped us to avoid many serious complications that could have occurred. She is truly a life saver! I would recommend her a million times over!

One Star

Dr. Raker is very sweet person and is great with kids. However I do not feel she is a great dr. It seems she tries to be so friendly with the parents to get them to "like her" and she fails to really give an opinion or diagnosis on anything. I would not recommend her.
