Specialties

Dr. Rebecca E Abernathy has the following 1 specialty

  • 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.

Uses Scare Tactics . . .

I don't usually leave reviews, but felt compelled to do so. Abernathy seems almost to "get off" on using scare tactics when it comes to important issues concerning your child. I have never seen a doctor do this, but she seems to enjoy trying to convince the parents that something really bad is going on with their child when it is not. Chalk it up to narcissism maybe?

No no no

I'm not sure if she has personal issues but she has misdiagnosed multiple times. I know several parents who refuse to see her if they need to be seen. I love this practice and every other doctor there is amazing but Abernathy definitely has major flaws as a doctor and has dropped the ball not on minor things but major life altering decisions.

Never Again

I will never take my child to this doctor again. She did not take time to answer my questions, rushed us through the appointment, did not seem knowledgeable, unprofessional, and very unfriendly. I left and got a second opinion. I felt like I was an inconvenience to her. She barely even looked at my child. I expect much more from a pediatrician.
