Specialties

Dr. Kimberly J Stoughton-Doherty has the following 1 specialty

  • 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.

Poor Communication/ Unnecessary Treatment

I did not know any different until I switched to a new pediatrician!! Do not let the nurses or doctors FORCE your child to open their mouth by prying their jaw open and leaving red fingerprints on their face! I finally left when they threatened to call DFACS on me... My 3 year old child refused to take the new round of antibiotics for strep. (The first 7 days of antibiotics did not work). I have never had a problem administering medicine to him. At first I tried forcing it, however, my child would spit (like blowing raspberries) as I was trying to administer it. I tried simpler ways by putting it in his chocolate milk, juice, and even made chocolate frosted cupcakes with the medicine... he refused. Because of his langauge/speech skill problem, he did not understand being punished (time-out, take away toys) for not taking his medicine. I tried calling the doctor to see if there was a better tasting medicince or easier way that I could administer it. The rude nurses informed me that I am "the parent and must force him to take the medicince". Then they gave me personal situations that, to me, just informed me they thought they were a better parent than me. I asked to speak to the doctor. The nurses said she would call me back. So, I get a phone call from a different nurse. I ask to speak to the doctor. In a demeaning voice, the nurse informs me that if I do not force my child to take his medicine then he will have to come in for 3 days to get shots that "will be very painful", or I would have to administer a suppository. I told her that neither one of those options were acceptable. She then told me that if I did not force my child to take the medicine, she would call DFACS on me. I immediately got off the phone and set up an appointment with a new pediatrician. The new pediatrician tells me that my child is a carrier of strep and the antibiotics are not going to help. Later, we found that Dr. Doherty was actually giving the nurses instructions on what to say, and she was not sorry for how we were treated.
