Dr. Thomas D Scholz has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatric Cardiology

    Pediatric cardiologists are pediatricians with additional, specialized, training in the heart health of your children. When infants are born with congenital heart disease or abnormal hearts, pediatric cardiologists get involved as soon as possible — sometimes before the child is even born.
    Through specific testing, they can diagnose the problem and care for the child throughout their treatment, which could range from medication to surgery and transplants. Other heart conditions they treat include arrhythmias, heart murmurs, holes in the heart and viral infections that affect blood flow.

  • 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.

Doctor that did nothing.

I don't recommend this doctor if he is one you have to see along with a pediatric endocrinologist for childhood obesity consult. I have dealt with my child's obesity for more than a decade and no doctors have done proper testing to find the cause. He will say: "calories in, calories out." Basically he is telling you your child eats way too much and is lazy. My other child went to the appointment for him to tell me that child has weight problems too because that child eats too many calories. The appointment wasn't even for that child, so he should have not said anything. I traveled out of town and waited more that 3 months to get in there for him to say: "calories in, calories out. " And my child never did see the endocrinologist they were suppose to only because he said he talked to my child's previous doctor who did nothing as well. And he made sure to tell me all the labs came back normal when he didn't even receive them. There are several reasons for childhood obesity that none of these arrogant doctors test for. Tumors, problems with pituitary hormone, thyroid, growth disorders, just to name a few. I mentioned some of these and he said no. It is no wonder many people have to read up on diseases because doctors like this do nothing. There are private labs where you can order your own labs without their approval; but you shouldn't have to do that since you have insurance. Needless to say, I wouldn't even give him one star, but you have to rate it for this site.
