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.
- Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine
The main responsibility of a perinatologists, also known as a maternal-fetal medicine specialist, is to treat, monitor and assist pregnant mothers through high-risk pregnancies. This includes high blood pressure, early labor and bleeding. They’re also able to identify birth defects and then recommend necessary treatments to support your baby before he/she is born.
Other reasons you may need to see a perinatologist during your pregnancy include diabetes, problems with a previous pregnancy or carrying twins. Having completed OB-GYN training, they’re experts on the female reproductive system with additional specialized training in un-routine pregnancies. So, whether you know you’re at risk going into your pregnancy or problems arise unexpectedly, perinatologists can help you.

My son's appointment was scheduled for 9:00 am one morning. He was not seen until 9:30 am. Dr. Gustavson spent at least fifty minutes of the appointment explaining to me what ADHD was and how it affected my son. He barely spent time getting to know my son or myself and our history. I later asked for a diagnosis of ADHD to be sent to my son's school for a 504 plan. I then found out the information sent to my son's school had miss quotes from me, the wrong list of medication my son had taken and an additional diagnosis on it that was never brought to my attention. When I asked the office manager Jodi to change the incorrect information she refused. My experience with this office is that they are extremely unprofessional and I am currently in the process of filing a complaint. I do NOT recommend Dr. Edward Gustavson or his office.
Dr. Gus is a developmental doctor and is a great doctor. His methods are great, step by step and knows what he is doing. He told me to say only one word at a time to describe things since my son would not be able to understand the complete sentences/instructions when he was 2, 3, 4, 5 years. But, now my son is 10 years and he is able to talk a little bit and to understand/follow instructions. I think that all kids with ADHD, autism, etc are wired differently and therefore we can not treat and teach them like any regular kids. God bless you all.
He rushed through my daughters appointment and didn't really get to know her or ask me any questions. He made her play with blocks then told me everything that was wrong with her. I'm sure he thinks every kid is the same. After her appointment i made a new appointment for 6 months later. A day before the appointment i called to confirm and the lady on the phone said he switched offices. I had to make a new appointment and they kept none of my daughters information. She was gonna be treated like a new patient. Never again will I bring my daughter to a place that can't even send a letter or call to tell someone who has an appointment that they moved.
Awful is the only word to use. Treats you like cattle just herds your child through quick as can. Doesn't answer question and all Autistic kids are the same to him. On top of that the ldaies at front desk are rude. He will never see my child again!!!
