What is a Pediatrician?
A pediatrician is a physician that specializes in treating children. They see children ranging from babies to teenagers and young adults, and can treat conditions affecting growth and development. Pediatricians offer preventive medicine such as vaccinations, and diagnose and manage diseases, including cold and flu infections, fevers, minor injuries, diabetes, ADD, and more. Pediatricians help kids develop healthy lifestyles, and they work with other health professionals to foster the health and well-being of children.
