Dr. Pamela Carlton 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.
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.

Dr. Carlton is great. At first she came off a little cold but she quickly warmed up as she got to know me. She sets aside plenty of time for you at your appointment -- you never feel rushed. She's very thorough and knowledgable. She cares about every single person that comes into her office. I was already an adult when I saw her, but I had heard she could be a little "scary" to patients under 18 because she could easily force the parents to send the kid away to the hospital or treatment center. She tried to get me to do that but as an adult I could decline. So yes, she can be a little pushy and I felt like sometimes she was OVER-concerned, but I don't think those are bad things at all. Eating disorders are tricky to treat and she does a great job advocating for better treatment and general awareness. Great office staff as well. Only 'negative' I can note is that if you contact her by email, she's not great at responding.
