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.
- Neurology with Special Qualifications in Child Neurology
A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.
A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

My daughter had multiple types of sesures which no other doctor could help her with. He was kind and was able to connect with her on G her level. He not only medicated her with proper medicine, but did proper tests to have her driving. He was booted out of Peace Health and moved to bend. The doctor who took over was Dr.Lockfeld who proceded to yell at us. The EEG was done one monthbefore our appt. which he had not read and screamed at us for not having enough time to read it and when we asked if he could read it now he stated," I have other patients!!!" Because of Jessica's insurance we cannot not see Dr.Goins and even if we could that would mean crossing the Santiam Pass in the winter. What should we do? I called the next day to tell the med assist. that we were out of her meds. and she assured me they would be done that day. They weren't and Friday came and went with no refill. He stated that her EEG was abnormal, but not what was abnormal. Ialso called his boss and left a detailed message and assuming she was on vacation, I am sure she will speak to him as litigation in on board as well as reporting him to the Oregon Board. We need another dr. Goins!!
First, this doctor has failed to agree to a contract with Blue Cross Blue Shield, so we had to pay out of pocket. Doctor required a $200 advance deposit, which we paid, after three phone calls with the doctor's office and two to our insurer. Finally, the doctor cancelled our appointment with less than 24 hours' notice, having decided that our son does not present a condition that he treats. Our pediatric psychiatrist had information to demonstrate to Dr. Goins that the appointment should not have been cancelled--that our son may have just the sort of problem that Dr. Goins could help with--but he was not able to reach Dr. Goins, given the short notice on the cancelled appointment. Dr Goins office did not put our appointment back on the schedule so our visit to our primary care physician, our several phone calls to both doctors and insurers and our $200 cash advance to the doctor accomplished nothing for us but wasted time and inconvenience. In the meantime, my son continues to experience problems that are causing him to miss 3 out of 4 days of school.
