Dr. Thomas L Anderson has the following 3 specialties
- Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine
The main responsibility of a perinatologists, also known as a maternal-fetal medicine specialist, is to treat, monitor and assist pregnant mothers through high-risk pregnancies. This includes high blood pressure, early labor and bleeding. They’re also able to identify birth defects and then recommend necessary treatments to support your baby before he/she is born.
Other reasons you may need to see a perinatologist during your pregnancy include diabetes, problems with a previous pregnancy or carrying twins. Having completed OB-GYN training, they’re experts on the female reproductive system with additional specialized training in un-routine pregnancies. So, whether you know you’re at risk going into your pregnancy or problems arise unexpectedly, perinatologists can help you.
- Adolescent Medicine
Adolescent specialists are doctors who have advanced training in the health issues that adolescents face. These physicians deal with issues like the onset of puberty, reproductive health, eating disorders, irregular periods, mood changes, drugs and pressures from home and school. For girls entering adulthood, adolescent specialists can act as both pediatrician and gynecologist, so they only have to see one doctor for all their needs.
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.

Dr. Anderson has always been very calm when I have taken my boys in to see him. No matter what kinds of problems we were having, he seemed to ease my mind by explaining the illness and then explaining what should be implemented to get through the tough times of them being sick. I have been very lucky and have never had anything that was considered severe, but I expected to see that he had plans to get my little ones well.I have called the office an a few occasions when I just could not get up the office because of my hectic schedule. I was always called back and questions were answered or if I needed to see the doctor, I would just take them in to Youth Care. I am a nursing student and I know people sometimes give meds to children to get them to sleep, I know they ask for meds that will not help the problem their child is having. I know my child and I like talking to Dr. Anderson. If you can talk to him and explain the conditions of the child, he will help give them something to help soothe the situation as much as possible.Oh, and my children LOVE him. He is big on the psycho development of children and that shows that he has his job for a reason! He is concerned and wants to help the children to be well as possible.I have never used any other pediatrician in Valdosta, besides at Youth Care. Please don't retire. I have 13 more years to need my favorite pediatrician!
Dr. Anderson is always pleasant with the parents as well as the patient in the office and in the hospital. His staff does not do well at follow-ups and transfering records as needed. They also seem to have problems returning overpayments without being badgered to do so. Great doc, but watch your purse!
