Specialties

Dr. Betty S Cross 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.

  • 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.

The site made me put a star otherwise I wouldn't have!!

This doctor seems to think lactose intolerance does not exist because she says she never heard of it. This doctor also insisted my DIL breastfeed while her new baby girl was balling up in pain afterwards because of lactose intolerance. The new baby's brother was lactose intolerant so we have been through this before and we know what the deal is. I believe it is time for this doctor to go back and study lactose intolerance with a side course of bedside manner.
