Specialties

Dr. Frank B Pearce has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatric Cardiology

    Pediatric cardiologists are pediatricians with additional, specialized, training in the heart health of your children. When infants are born with congenital heart disease or abnormal hearts, pediatric cardiologists get involved as soon as possible — sometimes before the child is even born.
    Through specific testing, they can diagnose the problem and care for the child throughout their treatment, which could range from medication to surgery and transplants. Other heart conditions they treat include arrhythmias, heart murmurs, holes in the heart and viral infections that affect blood flow.

  • 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.

Dr Pearce was always very informative, nice, and always listened to our questions & concerns. We have been seeing him as my son's Dr since he was born (almost 5 years ago) and have just recently been released from Cardiac care. He always answered our questions and made us feel very comfortable in the room while explaining and examine our son. He always had a nice bedside manner & was very patient and nice to our son who is Down Syndrome. I highly recommend him and trust his decisions and medical treatment he provided! I give him 5 stars all the way across the board!!!
