- 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.

I have had several experiences with Dr. Hedburg and his helping with my children. He has always been nothing but polite, courtieous, knowledgable,patient, caring and attentive. He remembers me, my children, and previous conversations we've had each time I see him. I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone.
This man has not only once but 3 times disappointed. 1. was when my child was 3 and running a fever and had an ear infection, this man raised his voice at my child at the end of the visit because my child was crying. He said if you do not stop crying you will not get a sticker, Very rudely and loudly. 2. This man recommended my child go on Ritalin without even testing my child for ADD or ADHD - He asked me if my child was hyperactive, and suggested that he write out a prescription of Ritalin for us to 'try'. Which I refused because I didn't want my child on unnecessary drugs. 3. This man has misdiagnosed my child 2 times saying that my child has had a mild cold when we ended up back in the pediatricians office the next day and she would be diagnosed with Bronchitis. I now make sure I do not have this doctor when I visit this office. I would not recommend him to anyone.
