Specialties

Dr. Rick D Espe 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.

I am a nurse, and have takne our children Dr. Espe for 15 years. We have always received excellent care. 2 of our children were born prematurely @ 28 and 32 weeks. Dr. Espe and his staff have helped our children with asthma, RSV, flu, sports injuries, and are always very calm, caring, and competent. He takes time with each patient and is genuinely concerned. He has an excellent bedside manner with his patients and their families, and his office staff is friendly and professional. I highly recommend Dr. Espe!!!

Beside Manner

Dr. Espe did a wonderful job caring for our first child who was premature. As first time parents we were nervous and concerned. His kind, confident manner allowed us to feel at ease about her status and progress. We are grateful to Dr. Espe and his staff for what he did for our daughter and what he continues to do for both of our children!
