Dr. Charles R Horton Jr 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.

He is the most incompetent physician I can imagine--worldwide. He knows nothing about medicine and actually pronounces non truths. He is dangerous!!! Truly dangerous!!! I warn all of you that he is horrid and ignorant. He gives wrong diagnosis. i am not kidding. Please don't go there. Your child's life could be in danger!!!!!!!!!!!
This man should never be able to practice medicine ever. If your child is healthy and needs his or her shot he's the man but if you actually have a sick child you're better off going to the emergency room or finding another doctor. He is a do nothing physician and everything is a virus to him no matter what. He is dangerous if you have a sick child because he will put your child in harms way by the do nothing approach. I am telling you he is horrid
Last summer at our daughter's 18 month checkup, Dr. Horton found a mass in her abdomen. He insisted we have an ultrasound the next day to determine what might be going on. As it turns out, it was a cancerous tumor on her right kidney. We were sent to St Jude in Memphis almost immediately. Because of Dr. Horton, they were able to remove the tumor and diagnose her as stage 1. Throughout the 4 mos if chemo she had, we constantly encountered doctors and nurses who said how often these types of tumors are missed because doctors just assume it's nothing and ignore them. Dr Horton is very conservative. If you are looking for a pediatrician who will write antibiotics every time you go in with a sick child, it's not him. But I trust his judgment completely and will never question him, as we literally owe him our daughter's life. He is a wonderful, caring Doctor who has taken care of both of my girls for the past 4 years and will take care of my 3rd due this summer. I wouldn't trust any other pediatrician in Huntsville more than him.
