    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.

Doesn't listen

Didn't take time with you and didn't answer questions when asked. Came out with a prescription and when that didn't help he refused to offer any other help.

Awesome

I highly recommend Dr. Koester. We found him to be patient, caring, and warm. Our situation caused a fair amount of extra work for him, but he went out of his way to ensure our son was well taken care of.

Disappointing evaluation and treatment

Typical arrogant attitude during office visit. Poor listener who refused to evaluate all the history and symptoms. He already had his mind made up prior to hearing all the facts.
