Pediatrics

Pediatricians are primary care doctors who specialize in the health and treatment of infants, children, adolescents and young adults from birth to age 21. Specialized training gives a pediatrician an in-depth understanding of children’s health needs, behavioral issues and the growth and development of a child’s body. A pediatrician can give you advice, prevent illness, monitor developmental milestones and help you foster a healthy lifestyle for your child.
