Specialties

Dr. Kristi L Machemer has the following 2 specialties

  • Adolescent Medicine

    Adolescent specialists are doctors who have advanced training in the health issues that adolescents face. These physicians deal with issues like the onset of puberty, reproductive health, eating disorders, irregular periods, mood changes, drugs and pressures from home and school. For girls entering adulthood, adolescent specialists can act as both pediatrician and gynecologist, so they only have to see one doctor for all their needs.

  • 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.

AMAZING

Dr Machemer has been treating our girls since she took over the practice from Dr Dublin. We have found her to be fantastic. We have one child that has had numerous medical issues and each time one of those issues arose Dr. Machemer made sure she was available immediately to address our concerns as well as ensure that we could have her treated at the hospital immediately. Dr. Machemer and her staff have been true godsends in supporting our family through the medical issues of our youngest.

accepts Tricare Prime and a Great doc

When we first started with Dr. Machemer last year I was not impressed with the office receptionist but I really liked Dr. M and her nurse is great. Dr. M has since hired a new receptionist who is wonderful. This is a small practice but she has made arrangements to see the kids on short notice when sick or if she didn't have same day appointments got us in at the local urgent care clinic. She talks to my teen sons and has a great manner with them. We have had to wait at times but then we have also had times where she fit us in and I am sensitive to the fact that as a medical practice things come up and complications happen.
