Specialties

Dr. Douglas L Laman 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.

  • 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.

You are only as good as your staff

Dr. Laman has been an excellent doctor so far. However, a doctor is only as good as his staff and the staff at this location leaves a lot to be desired. They are hateful, disrespectful, and take days to return calls. Not impressed. Love the doctor, hate the fact that I can't ever seem to be able to actually get to the doctor.

Dr Laman is soooo nice and a parents dream when it comes to a sick child. When my son was diagnosed with glycogen storage disorder he made sure we understood what was going on. he was relentless in searching and finding out more about his particular enzyme disease. He made my baby whom at the time was 7 months old feel comfy. my baby is now 3 and loves Dr. Laman

Dr Laman is a great doctor. He is thorough and has a great bedside manner. He really cares for his patients. My child had been suffering for a long time with an unknown condition. He ran appropriate labwork and got her help immediately! I highly recommend Dr. Laman.
