Dr. Ronda A Hamaker has the following 2 specialties
An otolaryngologist is more commonly referred to as an ENT, someone that can treat medical issues you may be having with you ears, nose, or throat. This is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions of the ear, nose, sinuses, larynx (voice box), mouth, throat, head, and neck. These doctors treat patients through both medical and surgical means. For instance, an otolaryngologist may treat an obstruction of the nasal passage, caused by malformation of the nose, through rhinoplasty.
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.

We love Dr. Hamaker. She is wonderful with the kids. She just puts them at ease as soon as she walks in the room. She is very honest. If she doesn't think you should spend the $$ on a prescription or doesn't think a surgery is necessary, she'll tell you. My only complaint is that every time we're there, we have to wait forever to see her. She spends a lot of time w/ each patient, which is great, I just wish they'd schedule more time in between patients then, so we didn't have to wait so long. It's worth it though.
