Specialties

Dr. William Bridgforth Jr 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.

Dr. Bridgforth is a great doctor with a nice sence of humor. I went to him as a child and have been blessed to take my daughter to him as well. He is knowledgable and professional.

Wonderful doctor!

I've been going to JC Peds since I was a child and now have a 10 year old daughter. Dr. Bridgeforth is my doctor of choice. His frank, honest demeanor is refreshing and his humor is needed during times that could otherwise be stressful! He's a wonderful doctor with great bedside manner.

Condesending poor bedside manner

Dr. William Bridgforth made unprofessional comments about my children, saying my son(2 years old) was "spoiled rotten" and my baby(13 months) was "stubborn as a mule". Whether these comments were made in jest or not, he should not say things like that about patients, especially very young sick children. He also spoke to me in a condescending tone, attempting to make me read aloud a passage about fevers. I went to school for early childhood education and worked in child care centers for 5 years. I know about fevers. My son is shy towards strangers and especially doctors. Dr. Bridgforth seemed to taunt him after his checkup was complete, saying "do you want me to check you again", etc. making him cry. He just did not know when to stop and leave my son alone. We have been patients of JCPeds for almost 3 years with no bad experiences, however we will not be seeing Dr. Bridgforth again.
