The staff is very unprofessional and unfriendly! When I asked for my babies shot records they acted as if it was just a huge inconvenience and were completely rude. I don't really have any issues with the doctor except that he told me I could start my 4 month old baby on solid foods, when the American pediatric association says to wait until at least 6 months. The wait time is absolutely ridiculous. Any suggestions on a new doctor?? The older nurse that gives the shots is an idiot, and extremely ruff with the babies. All staff need to take an etiquette class and learn people skills and how to professionally speak and handle patients and their families!!!

My mom had been tossed from doctor to doctor with none putting in enough effort to find out what is wrong with her. She was the first doctor in several years to really listen to my mom. She said I don't know what is wrong but we will work hard to figure it out. It turns out to be bad news but even jas she gave us the news she had such empathy and sympathy. She takes her time with you and answers all your questions. I am a nurse and have worked with hundreds of doctors and very few I feel are awesome. She is awesome.

I have used Dr. T for several years for my daughter. He has always treated us well, been careful to note her previous bad reactions to antibiotics and consults with me readily during our appointments. His current office staff is definitely an improvement on previous staff, and as most parents can tell you the staff in an office can make a huge difference in how you feel towards a Dr.

I agree with the previous review. I saw Dr. Roath for the first time a few days ago. She had a very warm, caring personality and showed genuine concern for me. She listened to me, answered all my questions, carefully reviewed my previous medical records, and, I believe, will find a solution to my health problems. I would highly recommend Dr. Roath.

He and his office crew were professional and personable. They took the time to explain everything they were doing and all the options I had. They were/are very willing to help in the best ways they can.I look forward to working with them to help tame my allergies.

The wait time may be annoying but I have honestly never had an issue with Dr. T. He has seen my children for almost a decade now. The staff has always been nice and considerate towards me and my kids.

Dr. Tindell is a great! Treats you like a person not a number, does not rush you through your appointment, treats me for my knees and shoulders. Would not see anyone else...
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.
