A pediatrician is a medical doctor who specializes in the care of children. Pediatricians possess additional specialized training in the health and illnesses of infants, teens, and adolescents. A certified Pediatrician provides preventive health care for children in good health, medical care for children suffering from acute or chronic illnesses, and advises parents on subjects such as growth and development, safety and prevention, nutrition, and emotional wellness of their children.

Your child should not only see the pediatrician for an illness. It is also important to schedule child wellness visits regularly that may begin in infancy through adolescence to be sure of the progress of your child’s physical and mental growth and development.
