Specialties

Dr. Douglas R Bierma Jr 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.

Three Stars

This doctor will quickly put your kids on medication. Especially if you want him drugged up. He doesn't take the kids personal thoughts into account. You can tell him what you want done, and he'll write a script for that.

Terrible

He was terrible. Rushed us out of the room. He was arrogant. He didn't allow us to talk or ask questions. I would not trust his advice for my child and we will not be returning. I highly discourage folks from taking their kids to this doctor.
