What Does a Pediatrician Do?
A pediatrician is a healthcare provider who specializes in caring for the physical, mental, and behavioral well-being of children, from birth to around 21 years old. From the first day of life, regular visits with your pediatrician will help ensure your child's healthy development and safeguard them from childhood illness and disease.
Pediatricians can diagnose and treat infections, genetic abnormalities and injuries, as well as developmental and mental disorders. If your child was born with a medical condition, your pediatrician can work with you and collaborate with other medical professionals and specialists to help provide your child with the care they need.
After birth, your child will visit their pediatrician often, particularly during their first couple of years of life. These well-child visits include physical examinations, immunizations, monitoring developmental milestones, and screening exams such as auditory and visual acuity testing. These visits also provide valuable time for you to ask questions regarding your child's health and to learn about steps you can take at home to support your child's optimal health and development.
We are here to provide not only preventive and routine care but also to properly diagnose and treat acute healthcare concerns. Allow our caring and knowledgeable medical team to guide and support you and your children as they grow into healthy and happy adults.
