About Dr. Scott J Sheets DO
Dr. Scott J Sheets has the following 2 specialties
- Pediatric Pulmonology
A pediatric pulmonologist is the go-to resource for children who need treatment for any kind of breathing issue or lung disease. If your child coughs up blood, has a cough that isn’t going away, or displays other symptoms such as trouble breathing, chest pain or wheezing, you can ask your doctor to refer you to a pediatric pulmonologist.
Common conditions and diseases they treat range from noisy breathing, asthma and chronic coughs to lung disease, apnea and cystic fibrosis. They can also diagnose and treat cases of pneumonia in children and prescribe any kind of respiratory medication or equipment your child might need.
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.

My son is 7 years old and we have been seeing him since birth. He is the most informative, patient doctor I have ever met. He is very honest about what is best for our children even if is it is something a parent may not want to hear. (2nd hand smoke, perfume etc.) My sister also goes to him for her daugther. She had an middle of the night emergency and he called the ER to see who was working and decided it was something he need to be there for and got up and met them in 10 minutes. He goes above and beyond and I wish more doctors were like him.

Our son who was 4 at the time, had been hospitalized 3 times within a year for "pneumonia". We finally got him in to see Dr Sheets and found out he has asthma and was on all the wrong meds. Dr Sheets put him on different meds, and since then he has not been hospitalized for any reason. Our son is now 7 and with following his asthma action plan has stayed healthy. Thank you Dr Sheets for diagnosing him and getting him on the right track.
Very nice, caring dr!

He comes in quickly and spoke with our son. Took the time to answer our questions, and our sons questions. He came up with a personalize care plan, and when we had concerns about some medications, he listened to what we were seeing and recommended changes to the medicine regime. He listened, and reacted to changes in our son due to medication, and so find what was best for him, personal attention was great.
