Specialties

Dr. Gillian J Simmons has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Very good pediatrician!

She is a very knowledgable doctor, who is experienced and yet young enough that she will be around or a while as your child grows (i.e. not on the cusp of retiring, like many drs in the area). She has a bubbly personality and takes each patient's case seriously as if it were one of her own children. She is very responsive to your concerns and explains each situation carefully. She has affilliated doctors in her office that can cover in an emergency if she is not available and her office staff is very professional. I highly recommend her! I have been bringing my children there for the last 6 years and have no problems or issues.
