Need A Doctor For Child In Oregon

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My 6 yr old is having a horrible time with her skin and constipation. Her skin is all broken out, she scratches it until it bleeds and now she has this bad body odor. We can not seem to find a knowledgeable doctor in our area. We are willing to go anywhere for help. We live in Portland Oregon. Anyone know of a doc near us or that specializes in children.

Doernbecher Children's Hospital has some great doctors.

This is my son's pediatric gastroenterologist, Dr. Terry:

This is his pediatrician. She is great and really takes the concerns of parents seriously. Her name is Tara Schwab.

My kids see Dr. William Marshall at Emmanual Children's and we really like him.

Their pediatrician is Kelvin Snyder with Sunset Pediatrics. He's great as well. He diagnosed my dd right away, didn't make me feel like I was making up her symptoms.

Thanks, I have been recommended Dr Terry from another doc, so will call on Monday. We have been on the run around for some time and my daughter is struggling. Something is wrong with her and the only dx I have so far is Celiacs. We have been strictly gluten free for 5 months with little change. Her skin is absolutely awful. She is having a difficult time dealing with it, not to mention the constipation. Any help will be welcomed.

Dr. Terry is great! She's also recommended by GIG. ;) If you think something else is going on with your kiddo, try going to the pediatrician I listed. She has no problems referring you to a specialist. I was concerned about my son's growth and she was more than willing to refer him to an endocrinologist. (In the end, we did not do that because his rate of growth has been increasing.) She takes your concerns seriously, which is enormously important.
