Specialties

Dr. Douglas H Macgilpin 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.

Contrary to the other reviewers, I am not a fan of Dr. Macgilpin! I have found him to be abrupt and pushy. He does not seem to listen to one's concerns. I have and will continue to frequent this office as I love the staff and several of the other doctors.

Sometimes it's difficult get an appointment early in the morning, but that's because he has so many patients. He get's you in there as soon as he can. Even if you don't see Macgilpin himself, the other doctors there are very nice and provide great medical service.

A very smart doctor!

Dr. Doug (as his patients call him) is a funny and caring doctor. He's also a solid diagnostician and knows how to handle nervous 1st time mothers with care. He spends all the time you need in your appt. and is not rushing out the door. He's a little abrupt when looking in ears or giving shots. If you're looking for a hand-holder, he is not it. BUT, he's smart fun, and an overall great doctor.
