Dr. Jorie J Shire 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 shire truly cares about all of her patients and families well being. She listens to any concerns parents or children have and fully addresses them. She makes time in her schedule Ben when its overbooked to see your child if it's urgent. She doesn't rush through visits and does full examinations until she is sure of what's going on. Takes the time to explain any tests, medications, goals for child, what to expect. When to call if needed. I leave knowing everytime I'm 100% confident with the knowledge she provides and care and if I have anymore questions to call her and she will get back to you in a timely manner. Goes above and beyond what is expected. Have been with her since the birth of my first child 8 years ago through today with my most recent being born premature. I wouldn't change a thing with her!!!!
Brought my child and because he wouldn't stop crying she suggested that I bring my child back for full body x-rays at the age of two and half three months because she wouldn't let me try doing reflux meds when my son was spitting up. I'm not saying I'm right but I looked on the Internet and he had a lot of the symptoms that point to acid reflux and master she could probably with that cousins and friends attended and it all sounded similar. So I leftists she wanted me to stop breast-feeding feed him this crazy expensive formula and I had to go to my doctor and I finally got the right medicine. Never again will I ever see her she has too much opinion and not enough help I understand that doctors are supposed to help you the best of their knowledge but she wasn't versatile at all.
As first time parents, our experience with Dr. Shire has been extremely positive. She has taken the time to review questions/concerns with us, and we have appreciated her advice and professionalism when our son was hospitalized at 6 months old. She has a very warm bedside manner, and I would strongly recommend her to other parents.
I had a few bad experiences with this doctor -- primarily when I didn't want to go along with all of the medical tests she was ordering. I got a "we're going to do things my way or else" attitude. Fortunately I know enough as a parent to stand my ground when I feel something is wrong for my child, and I prevented my child from having to go through some unnecessary and invasive tests.I would not recommend this doctor AT ALL.
