Dr. Donald R Burgess Jr has the following 4 specialties
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.
- Developmental - Behavioral Pediatrics
- 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.
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

My wife and I recently moved to the Kennebunk area with our now 3 year old son. His primary Pediatrician is still in Portland, as we have not yet decided on one here. My son became ill at preschool and we were concerned and wanted him to see a Doctor. Preferably one in this area since we now live here. This review does not reflect the Doctor himself or his credentials, only the triage nurse. I called and asked about becoming a new patient there, the receptionist told me what needed to be done. I then asked if there was any way my child could be seen today where we wanted to get him checked out as soon as we could. I was transferred to the triage nurse. She asked his symptoms and I told her. She then asked me who his regular Doctor was. I told her. She then promptly told me I would need to call them. She was no help at all. Thank god we didn't go through the process of actually making this place my son's primary care facility. After this experience I would never recommend any one be treated this way in a time of medical need. I will make it my new hobby to spread the word about the people that are at this office, and that they 100% should not be dealing with people at all, much less children.
