If you had to choose all over, would you once again choose pediatrics as your specialty and be a primary care physician?
I would: I would because I have this great love of children and being able to help them. But it is different for every individual - it depends what you are in medicine for. If you want to get rich and not have much on call duty, primary care and pediatrics are not for you. But if your reward is hearing that first cry at birth, or a tiny little hug and smile, then pediatrics is your calling! ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers

I have ADHD and i visit a pediatrician once a month but people say pediatricians are kid doctors does that mean when im 20 i can't see a pediatrician?
Eventually, yes: Pediatricians usually have a range of patient ages, and often transfer their care to other physicians when they age out.

I hardly urge for sex and I have been married for 8 yrs with 3 kids.My doctor told me I have hyperprolactinamia.Could it be the cause?
Yes, maybe. : Hyperprolactinemia can be a side effect of certain psychiatric medications, and we believe it contributes to loss of sexual interest in some patients. If you are not on those medications your doctor should pursue why you have it. There are many other reasons for loss of sexual interest, including being exhausted by the demands of daily living or harboring hard unspoken feelings about your spouse. ...Read more
