Ratings for Dr. Sharon L. Ahart
Dr. Ahart has a very limited worldview and does not accept parents that have a different ideology than her. For example, I breastfed my child until he was two--our choice. She was very negative regarding breastfeeding and told me formula is actually superior after 6 mos. of age. Breastfeeding is a woman's (and child's) choice, and should be encouraged by the doctor. She also was critical of limiting screentime (t.v., computer, etc.) because, as she said, that's the future and parents should want their children to function in society well. I believe children should be encouraged to develop their own imaginations...but I understand that others may see that differently. I just was surprised to have a alarmed face made at me when I told her "thank you for your suggestions, but we have traditional values". I take my child to the doctor for medical treatment, not parenting advice--but am not mad if I get advice, just shocked when judged so easily. She was very scary to my boy as well.
Dr. Ahart is the best...she takes no crap off the kids, hence the complaints from the crybaby parents about her bedside manner. Sure you have to wait sometimes because she takes her time with her patients, but, she takes the same amount time with your kids, so it all evens out. She loves my daughters and they love her. I won't take them to anyone else.
Son was 7 or 8 at the time (he's 17 now). She wanted to check his testicles. Just pulled down his pants w/o telling him why she was doing it. He was upset and scared. I was angry! Another time, he had a stiff neck, so she twisted it quickly. He screamed out in pain. Has had trouble with neck ever since. I find her overbearing,egotistical, and with no beside manner what-so-ever.
