Dr. Dedrick E Moulton has the following 2 specialties
- Pediatric Gastroenterology
Pediatric gastroenterologists can treat a variety of diseases and conditions in infants and children related to their liver, pancreas or intestines. If your child has severe or recurrent abdominal pain, constipation or diarrhea, a pediatric gastroenterologist can help you get to the bottom of it. They can also help identify the many possible causes of failure to thrive in infants.
Other common conditions they treat include Crohn's Disease, inflammatory bowel disease, liver disease, short gut syndrome and hepatitis C, as well as nutritional disorders like celiac disease and lactose intolerance. In order to diagnose and treat your child’s condition, gastroenterologists can perform colonoscopies and other diagnostic testing before deciding on the best treatment plan.
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.

Dr. Moulton is a very good Pediatric GI doctor. He is thorough and has an excellent bedside manner. His approach addressed our concerns and ultimately the best treatment to allow my son to live his life as a child should. It's big clinic at a big hospital so don't be discouraged if you have to leave messages. When it's your turn, you have undivided attention.
From the moment we walked in the office I knew it was going to be a bad visit. We were stuck in a room smaller than my son's closet. So small in fact we had to leave the stroller outside because there was no room for it. Then after waiting well over an hour and a half!! this jerk walks in and spends three minutes with us and asks in a smirky tone...Why would you even come here for that? BECAUSE OUR PEDIATRICIAN REFERRED US TO YOU!! He did no additional tests did not even look at my child (no look in the ears or throat) and said we wont see you back unless they are basically on the brink of dying....vomiting blood or several instances of pneumonia...I was in shock when we left and made it very clear they would never see us again. DO NOT GO TO HIM!!!!!!
Great beside manner when examining my son in the office. Trouble is with follow-up. Recommends that you use the Vandy patient communication system. If you have any questions, you'd better ask them during the appointment. His minions read the e-mail instead of him and they may or may not answer you. Doesn't consider any other options once he has made HIS diagnosis. You just keep testing until his diagnosis is proved correct. Three years of testing and medications trying to figure out what was wrong with my son when a dietary change fixed the problem. I communicated this to the staff and they said he said we should still continue with medications that never solved the problem and told us that we were wrong about the dietary change fixing everything.
Always have to wait forever when making an appointment and then in the office waiting room. The staff is nice, however, they are way too busy for any personalized service. We question our son's diagnosis since after several years we switched doctors and he miraculously recovered within 6 months after being treated differently. Follow up from his nursing staff is horrendous, they never call you back oftentimes days go by and you have to cal back over and over again before getting any call back. Way too busy with too many patients to give any care.
