Specialties

Dr. James F Parker has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatric Emergency Medicine

    If your child ever becomes unstable and you rush to the hospital, a pediatric emergency medicine specialist will work to quickly diagnose the condition, start treatment and then continue to monitor symptoms until he/she is stable again. They are pediatricians specifically trained to handle medical emergencies and make quick decisions to treat infants and children.
    They have experience treating allergic reactions, poisonings, trauma injuries from accidents and complications that arise from any chronic illnesses, congenital conditions, asthma or diabetes. They can also diagnose the source of severe symptoms like fever, seizures and trouble breathing to get parents more answers.

  • 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.

Wonderful ER Pediatrician

We were sent to the emergency room by a doctor at Middlesex Pediatrics in Middletown (which is a whole other story). Dr. Parker was the supervising doctor in the ER so we only saw him once we were close to leaving. How I wish he could be our regular pediatrician. He was very professional and very caring. He listened to us. HUGE! We need more doctors like him. note: I'm only able to click on three stars for the "overall opinion" on here. The fourth star will not highlight as I scroll over it. Otherwise, he would have all four stars.
