Specialties

Dr. Suzanne M Southerland 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.

Not a fan

She seemed pretty thorough and knowledgeable. But for some reason she seemed to walk in with a bad judgement of me (or maybe she was having a bad day) and was pretty dismissive of me for no good reason. She also was not as gentle with my son as I would like and seemed to dislike him. I only saw her once but because of my bad experience I would not recommend her to anybody else. In her favor, she was on time, the staff were pretty nice, and the facility was clean and orderly.

Best Pediatrician in Sarasota for Non-Vaccinating moms

She will try to persuade you to consider vaccines but she does it with respect and patience. She is amazing, available and has an open-mindedness that is refreshing.I deeply respect her opinions and no question is silly with her. She is a brilliant woman, a mom and has an amazing bedside manner. I almost hate to share her but after encountering some horrible docs I feel I must share with other moms.
