Dr. Timothy W Thurston 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.

We love Dr. Thurston

My son, Tyler, who is now 5 years old, is a patient of Dr. Thurston. For the first few years of Tyler's life he was very sick. Dr. Thurston was always able to fit us in. I remember one time calling at 4:55pm because my son started complaining of his ear hurting. I called the office, even thought they close at 5, and they told me to go ahead and bring my son in. Dr. Thurston always listens and can ALWAYS figure out what is going on with my child. I honestly could not ask for a better pediatrician for my child!
