Debra L. Schwartzers, MD

Philosophy of Care

I’m passionate about pediatrics. I strive every day to partner with parents and their children (from newborns to teenagers) to effectively diagnose and treat medical issues and to create a wellness/preventative care plan to maintain good health. I also enjoy providing comprehensive healthcare to the entire family: mom, dad and kids.

Of all the calls we receive at our office, fever wins hands down as the one complaint that generates the most parental concern.

Febrile seizures are convulsions brought on by a fever in infants or small children. During a febrile seizure, a child often loses consciousness and shakes, moving limbs on both sides of the body. Less commonly, the child becomes rigid or has twitches in only a portion of the body, such as an arm or a leg, or on the right or the left side only. Most febrile seizures last a minute or two, although some can be as brief as a few seconds with others lasting for more than 15 minutes.
