Pediatrics is a branch of medicine that deals with the diagnosis, preservation of health, and medical care of infants, children, and adolescents from birth up to 18 years of age.
Providing medical care to children is the job of a specialized pediatrician. Unlike patients in other age groups, children grow and change rapidly. Therefore, an important part of a pediatrician’s job is to assist children and inform parents about specific milestones in growth, development, and behavior. Educating parents about proper childcare is also a significant role of a pediatrician, so you can always receive advice from an expert on topics such as health maintenance, nutrition, safety, and the proper lifestyle for your child.
Treating the youngest patients, contrary to popular belief, can be a significant challenge and require specific skills. The youngest pediatric patients, such as infants and small babies, lack communication skills to tell the doctor what’s wrong with them or what problem they have. On the other hand, slightly older children are not always eager to undergo a medical examination.
Rest assured that our pediatricians are highly skilled professionals with extensive experience and social skills necessary to gain the trust and cooperation of our youngest patients.
