Dr. Gary W Schlichter has the following 1 specialty
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. Schlichter is amazing! He is extremely knowledgeable and takes time to get to know you and your child. He answers all your questions and has a very personable manner. I trust him thoroughly. I know that he has as much care and concern invested in my child's health as I do. He has gone above and beyond on many occasions on helping us out and gathering information for us. I would recommend him to anyone! Great man, amazing doctor.
I have been taking my girls to this doctor for 8 years... and he never seems to remember who they are. One time we saw him a week prior and had to come in again... he couldn't remember us then either. Today I needed to get a refill for some epipen shots for a deathly nut allergy. I am comfortable having one in my home, my car and my girls school. I have shared custody, and she also needs shots at her dad's house. He needs one in his car and in his home. I do not trust him to take one shot everywhere he goes, and I insist that he has at least 2 epipens because this is a life and death situation!! Sadly Dr. Schlicter would not prescribe all the needed shots (as he did once before). He would only do one for me, one for my ex and one for the school. When I said I am not comfortable with this, I was told to go look for a new doctor. I am left with the feeling like they could care less. My girls have been great patients, and we have never been a problem to deal with. We have gone way out of our way to keep this same doctor, even after moving out of the area.. and I am left feeling like I made the wrong choice. Will be finding a new doctor asap.
