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.
An otolaryngologist is more commonly referred to as an ENT, someone that can treat medical issues you may be having with you ears, nose, or throat.

Saved our sons life by telling us he didnt need a surgery that another doctor said he did witch would have hurt him really bad
I cannot find a single thing about our evaluation appt. that went well. Dr. Duncan was unsympathetic and I was aware after the initial 3 minutes that he was not taking my 18 month old daughter serious. We were there for a eval. for tonsillectomy. But because her tonsils/adenoids weren't completely closing her airway, Dr. Duncan said she did not need surgery. Instead, he put a scope down her nose into her throat, only to tell me the same thing and then charge us for the procedure. Did I mention the procedure was a little over a hundred dollars (after insurance)? Also, we had to fork out the money for this "procedure" before leaving the office?!! Dr. Duncan looked at my babies patient history, noted she was born with reflux, and decided he would treat her for reflux again...Instead of addressing the ACTUAL problem ...an airway obstruction! My daughter had been off reflux meds for 6 months and was doing well off of them. There is no way i will put her on Prevacid for the slightest indication of reflux. (Which is what Duncan said she had.His words were "mild irritation". I'm no doctor, but the videoscopy of her throat DID NOT appear irritated to me. Mothers, do not let some doctor tell you your child isn't suffering if you KNOW they clearly are!!! Doctors don't know everything, even though Dr. Duncan tried to come across that way. I would NOT recommend him! He has sooooo many patients that he could care less about losing one or two. I felt like just another DOLLAR SIGN. I will never see him again or tell anyone else to see him. Dr. Duncan was a waste of time when my toddler needed to be treated. Not to mention, they overcharge you. I received the E.O.B. from my insurance a few weeks later and noticed I was overcharged. I had to leave several messages before getting a call back from their billing coordinator. another headache and waste of my time!!! i respect the affiliation with Texas Childrens, but Never again!!!! These people are all money hungry jerks!
