Dr. Debra F Tickles 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.

My 1 year old had ear infections for 7 months straight. Dr. Tickles put her antibiotics over and over. When I asked about tubes, she was rude and said I'd have to find an ENT on my own because she didn't think my daughter needed tubes. What doc thinks it's a good idea to put a child on antibiotics for that long? The tubes fixed the problem and my daughter has never had another ear infection and we switched pediatricians. Dr. Tickles has no bedside manner and she even seems to not like kids! My daycare provider told me that every parent at her daycare over the years has had similar complaints about this dr. And the office feels like the free clinic. My husband wouldn't even sit in their waiting room because it was so gross.
