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.

I was Dr. Amylon's patient about 28 years ago....back when he looked like he was a 15-year old kid (my father kept waiting for the doctor to come in...LOL). He, along with Dr. Michael Link, worked together and were agress with my treatment (back when the prognosis for AML was grim at best), took several chances with me (new treatment plan, first child with Hickman cathedar, etc.)and were warm and personable all along the very hard road. I am alive today (and a mother of two beautiful, healthy children) because of them. Also, very important, Dr. Amylon turned into "Dr. Mike" whenever he went on trips with us oncology patients (camping on the beach, snow trips, etc.)....he was then our friend and not just our doctor. I cannot say enough about this man. Just know that you (or your child) are in very good hands!
