Dr. Richard L Hines 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.

Dr. Hines is fantastic!

I recommend Dr. Hines to all of the new families in the area. I have been so impressed with him and all of the other doctors in his practice. He has a wonderful bedside manner and spends a lot of time getting to know parents and children to understand their needs and parenting style. Also, when my daughter had a very serious medical issue, the doctors in this practice were very good at getting her the right care and connecting her with top notch specialists. Even though the issue was then being cared for by these specialists, the doctors at Southwestern Medical continued to follow the issue through checking in with us on a regular basis during this very scary time. Their kindness and concern was so appreciated. I should also note that this office has some cutting edge technology with the otoLAM procedure ( a wonderful alternative to tubes). This procedure worked wonders for my daughter that was having chronic ear infections. It was quick and easy with no special care required and no need to "put her under" with anesthesia.
