Specialties

Dr. Linda A Paxton 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.

Warm, Attentive, Sensitive, Astute, Intelligent Dr. A++++

Dr. Paxton has been taking care of my daughter, now age 15, since she was borm. I feel we struck gold in finding such a terrific doctor. I am 100% confident in Dr. Paxton's expertise and medical judgment. Her devotion to providing the best possible care to her patients is obvious. She has an easy going and nurturing style and relates beautifully to children at every developmental stage. When as a little one my daughter was terrified by shots, Dr. Paxton was consoling. When during puberty she felt that just about everything was embarrassing, Dr. Paxton was understanding. And now that my daughter is a teenager, Dr. Paxton has an enviable ability to show that she "gets it." You could not find a better doctor (or practice!). The other Doctors there are wonderful too!
