Dr. Richard H Mansfield has the following 1 specialty
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.Mansfeild is a wonderful doctor, and he remember's us from our first appointment. We have seen him out and about in public and he comes and says hi. He is very caring and listens to all our concerns, in fact we changed our son over to him from another doctor because he showed concern for him and he didn't even see him, he saw our daughter. I would highly recommend him, and he does have other doctors in his office that are just as caring and good. Every time I have ever needed an appointment we get an appointment right off, if they are sick. Our daughter was life flighted from the hospital here, to Scottish Rite his choice because this hospital didn't have what she needed had she needed it. While there his office called and made sure she was okay, and that shows they really do care, and it's not just for the money. We love Dr.Mansfield. We have never had a bad experience from him or his office.
Not only does he NOT have a medical degree his bedside manner is aweful! He spends about 5 minutes with you brushes off concerns I had about my sons ears infections.He told me being on 10 antibiotics back to back was normal. I didn't trust that so I made a appointment with a local ENT. He said not only was that not normal my child is in need of ear tubes. Ear tubes and ear infections are text book problem with kids and Manfield got it terribly wrong. Go SOmewhere else! Small town dr who does not care
To you ignorant people:A D.O. is a Doctor of Osteopathy. It is a professional doctoral degree, and its holders have the same rights and responsibilities as M.D.'s. They are licensed the same as M.D.s in all fifty states. D.O. programs are virtually the same as M.D, but require an EXTRA 300-500 hours of hands on manual medicine and muscular-skeletal system training. Get your facts straight.That being said, my experience with Dr. Mansfield has been that he holds back on prescribing medicine, especially antibiotics, unless absolutely necessary. He has NEVER prescribed myself or my younger siblings medicine without seeing them first. I would highly recommend him.
Dr. Mansfield is both of my sons' pediatrician and we are quite happy with him. He IS a medical doctor - however, he is a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine and not a Doctor of Allopathic Medicine - which is what an M.D. is. Please google it and learn more. They are schooled and tested and boarded like any other physician.
Mansfield DOES NOT have a medical degreeFYI.. He is VERY quick to brush off concernsGAVE MY SON 6 antibiotics over a 3 month time frame and said it was normal. Gave me a 7TH prescription and told me to take it home in case his ears acted up..My reply was you don't even want me to bring him in so you can see his ears? "no just take it"?! If you have a emergency you better call in the am or they will tell you "sorry we cant see you today"They take any and every insurance so get ready to wait. NO forms ARE ON -LINE besides new patient so at 12 months and 18 months they give you a BIG packet to fill and "NO WE DONT MAIL THOSE" I cant say anything good besides it is a new office and clean.
