Dr. Lowry C Shropshire has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatric Neurodevelopmental Disabilities
  • 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.

My sons and daughter have seen Dr Shropshire for over 16 years. He is knowledgeable, patient and kind regarding numerous disabilities and developmental delays. He works well with other specialists within the military system. His diagnosis have always been accurate and they evolve as the children grow. I highly recommend him and he is so popular appointments fill up quickly but he is worth the wait.

Full Review Rating Breakdown
You'd better hope your child is a nail, because a hammer is all he's got!

Dr. Shropshire's experience is in autism, and he goes in assuming your child is autistic. Nothing you say will change his mind. I actually caught him typing his report from a "pro forma" on his computer in which he stated that my son could not perform a certain diagnostic test, which my son WAS able to do. When I called him on it, he said that he would change it before completing the report. Nope, the incorrect statement made it into the report and into my son's medical records. Dr. Shropshire diagnosed "profound" autism and suggested it might be necessary to institutionalize my son. Many doctors later, we finally have a CORRECT diagnosis from a geneticist, and my son has done fine in a mainstreamed school situation after some interventionary discrete trial training, none of which was even mentioned by Dr. Shropshire.
