Dr. Robert S Appleton has the following 2 specialties
- Pediatric Cardiology
Pediatric cardiologists are pediatricians with additional, specialized, training in the heart health of your children. When infants are born with congenital heart disease or abnormal hearts, pediatric cardiologists get involved as soon as possible — sometimes before the child is even born.
Through specific testing, they can diagnose the problem and care for the child throughout their treatment, which could range from medication to surgery and transplants. Other heart conditions they treat include arrhythmias, heart murmurs, holes in the heart and viral infections that affect blood flow.
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 can't say enough about Dr. Appleton. He is knowledgable, kind and goes out of his way in all sorts of different ways that demonstrate how much he cares for his patients and his families. From the ties and socks he wears, to his gentle kind reassuring manner i have never had a pediatric cardiologist act in such a wonderful fashion helping allay my fears for my daughter.
I did not know what to think since he was a new doctor to my daughter. What a joy. He is kind, patient, answers all of my questions and really enjoys children. Every time we have been there he dresses to make children comfortable with cartoon ties and socks and toys but yet is the most thorough and professional doctor and that is charming. To feel comfortable, and safe is really extraordinary. To feel that your child is not terrified is something fabulous. He is the best!
