Board certified by the American Academy of Pediatrics in pediatric medicine, Dr. Lindsey received her medical degree from the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Medicine. She completed a three-year pediatric residency at the USAF Medical Center Keesler. She served in the Air Force as Chief of Pediatrics in Mississippi, Missouri, Texas, and California.
Those who practice in pediatrics the specialty concerned with the health of infants, children, and adolescents will tell you there is no more rewarding specialty in all of medicine.
Todays pediatricians put utmost emphasis on preventive healthcare. Childhood killers such as diphtheria, meningitis and bacterial pneumonia are less threatening due to the advent of highly effective immunizations and antibiotics. More energy is put into ensuring the growth and development of healthy children and in maintaining their health as they mature into young adults.
The ideal way to begin your relationship with your childs pediatrician is to schedule a prenatal visit. Dr. Lindsey does not charge expectant parents for this essential appointment.
Dr. Lindsey is available to you 24 hours a day if your child has a medical emergency. Her staff and nurses have been trained to help callers decide if a child needs an appointment; her nurses can answer many of your questions as well.
An informed patient is a more satisfied patient
Your AMS pediatrician believes in explaining your childs condition in detail, providing literature on his or her illness or treatment, and generally making certain that you understand the recommended care. Your questions are always welcome, and either Dr. Lindsey or her well-trained staff will supply you with the answers you need.
