Dr. James R Thomsen 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 thomsen is an good physician when you can see him. Please be aware that once your child is evaluated almost all follow up is with a nurse practioner , they don't tell you that until later, and it is even hard to get an appointment with them. If you insist on seeing him as we did once you will probably have a 4 to 6 week wait, ridiculous when you have a sick child that they performed a procedure on, therefore you are forced to see a nurse practioner, nothing against them but different ones each time and difficult scheduling made us decide to switch our ent.
My son has seen doctor Thomsen at most 2 times, later we have been schedule to just see the nurses. In 2 years my son has seen every time a different nurse, nobody knows his history, when I ask what I should do next, they left the room to ask to the doctor what to do. We receive a letter to make a sleep study but and when I called to ask about it. Nobody knows why I have to do it, when I ask to see the doctor to talk about this mayor study where my child has to sleep at the hospital. They just schedule him a visit to talk with a nurse again, probably a different again... Not a personalize attention, they seem to be more interested in quantity and not quality of the service anymore.
Dr. Thomsen has taken care of our daughter since she was an infant, having performed tracheostomy, multiple scoping procedures and ear tube placement & replacement over the past 4-1/2 years to treat my daughter's condition. He is highly articulate, takes time to listen to concerns and ensures follow up measures are in place. His dry humor and silly manner with my daughter instantly put her at ease. He has called me on the weekend to report test results he receives in order to provide me fast and detailed information. He is an integral part of the medical team in maintaining my daughter's care, and coordinates with her entire craniofacial team with grace to make sure everyone is in agreement about her treatment options. I have recommended him to many friends, and will continue to do so. I consider him a blessing.
