Pediatric Infectious Diseases



As a Pediatrician, I see myself as an advocate for children. I like to share the woes of parenting, to raise healthy and happy children. I have created a practice that promotes the highest quality of care, in a supportive and nurturing environment. Using my knowledge of General Pediatrics and Infectious Diseases, I guide my patients and their families in both well care and illness.

    Childhood Obesity

    Childhood obesity has doubled for children and tripled for teenagers over the past 30 years, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The American Medical Association’s decision to make obesity a disease affirms there are many medical factors that play a role beyond diet and exercise – but just as with adults, focusing on preventing obesity in kids works best through early education with a focus on diet, exercise, and lifestyle. Oakwood-affiliated pediatrician and pediatric infectious disease specialist Dr. Arsala Bakhtyar sees patients through her office in Canton.
