Dr. James W Forsen Jr has the following 2 specialties
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.
An otolaryngologist is more commonly referred to as an ENT, someone that can treat medical issues you may be having with you ears, nose, or throat. This is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions of the ear, nose, sinuses, larynx (voice box), mouth, throat, head, and neck. These doctors treat patients through both medical and surgical means. For instance, an otolaryngologist may treat an obstruction of the nasal passage, caused by malformation of the nose, through rhinoplasty.

Dr. Forsen has always recognized and remembered us when we come in to see him. Both of my children have seen him, one from the tender age of 5 days old to now 5 years. He is so great with my children and takes the time to explain what is happening and why and the next steps. He also takes the time to ask if "mom or dad" have any questions which is amazing in this age of rushing doctors
After my 4 year old had her tonsils taken out, he was in the surgery center the whole day. He, himself, even called 2 days after to check on her!!! He has always taken his time with us, to explain, and to answer all of our questions. He is so compassionate to the kids. His staff has always been more than friendly, and very helpful!
Our daughter was born with a birth defect...and Dr. Forsen was the first and only ENT we saw (with the exception of the other doctors in the office on rare occassion - weekends/emergencies). He spent time explaining to us what was happening, empathisizing with us, he even came into the hospital to check on her when he had his kids and he was not the on-call doctor.
