Update 2-12-16 - My granddaughter now has a seizure disorder as a result of a vaccine injury incurred as of the time of my first review. If they had listened to my daughter's concerns and spaced the vaccines out, this may not have happened. But the real insult is that we had to pester this office for almost 3 weeks just to get the required referral to a neurologist, and now they have refused to issue a medical exemption as required by the CDC in cases of vaccine injury. They may be free from liability from the vaccine injury, but not so sure about medical negligence in the case of refusing to issue the exemption...will see.

I have brought my kids to this office since they were newborns. The staff has always been very friendly and we love Dr. Bridgeman. She is always very thorough and makes sure that we understand everything that she explains. I would highly recommend this office and Dr. Bridgeman.

Very professional and accurate, the Doc even took extra time to explain in detail how they came to the diagnoses! We are very happy with everyone here.

Do NOT take your children to this office of bullies dressed as doctors. They will force their one-track version of "medicine" on your children regardless of any known allergies or other concerns and tell you that refusal to comply with their protocol is deemed child endangerment. Find a real doctor who understands that medicine is an art because one size does not fit all and keep your precious little ones out of this kiddie mill.

Apparently I cant pay these folks to treat me with any kind of dignity. I was injured in an accident while moving which required 11 stitches. The follow-up instructions were to see my FP doctor in 2 days which I did. I was made to feel stupid for even coming there when Maggie spears said to me "It looks fine. I don't know what you want US to do." I explained that I was told by the ER doc to come and have it checked and to get my pain meds from my family doc because of restrictions on prescriptions filled by medicaid. They did however sent me with the 2 day supply until i saw them. While I was there I asked them for a refferal to an ear nose and throat specialist which I was to do for vocational rehab so that we could find out if I need hearing aids. The person who checked my hearing ran into my foot which hurt like an sob and then acted as if it was my fault because it was hanging off the end of the table and made me move it out of her way. I told them that my meds were making me a little nauseous and inquired about getting something else. BIG mistake. She started rattling off a bunch of names of some crap I never heard of( with the exception of Motrin which I knew was not going to cut it with this particular injury.), to which I replied never mind I'll just take these. Because I have already been to pharmaceutical fairyland with these people and I paid for it last time with some junk that made me throw up blood. Bad enough right? I'm afraid that wasn't where it ended. While I was waiting for the nurse to come and re-bandage me I hear quite clearly "Yeah the pills are making her sick but she still wants them what does THAT tell ya?" I am supposed to go and have my stitches out today but you know what? I think Maggie was right. I am stupid to go there so I will be removing them myself and finding a new doctor who isn't just going to cause further injury to my body or my sense of self respect.
Tips & Advices
A child should see his or her pediatrician frequently during the first few years. Once the child reaches age 3, parents should schedule a doctor's visit at least once per year. Before that, however, the American Academy of Pediatrics suggests parents arrange visits according to the following schedule:
  • 2 to 5 days old
  • 1 month old
  • 4 months old
  • 6 months old
  • 9 months old
  • 12 months old
  • 15 months old
  • 24 months old (2 years)
  • 30 months old (2.5 years)
No, parents should call 911, an emergency physician, or a pediatric emergency physician if a child suffers an acute illness or injuries. Doctors in these fields are more qualified than pediatricians to handle emergency situations.
A well-visit is a routine visit with a pediatrician to track a child's development, discuss medical or emotional concerns, and receive immunizations and medical advice.
Yes, pediatricians provide immunizations for infants and children up through 21 years.
No, pediatricians do not have to be board certified.They're only required to have a state license. However, certification indicates a dedication to studying pediatrics beyond the requirements.
