Children have different medical needs than adults. They are susceptible to various illnesses and require specialized care. No one understands that better than a Pediatrician. Ideally, your child’s health care remains with the same Doctor from infancy to adulthood.
Pediatrics is the medical care of children from infancy to the age 21. General pediatrics involves treating everything you can think of. Something as simple as diaper rashes or eczema to respiratory infections, ear infections, and diarrhea. A Pediatrician can offer you advice on the appropriate care for everyday illnesses and even give you the correct steps to treat potentially life-threatening conditions. They have a thorough understanding of the emotional, physical, and social development of children
Probably the greatest part about having the same pediatrician throughout your child’s developmental years is the bond that you, your child and your Pediatrician share.
They can administer school vaccinations and provide routine care for ear infections and upper respiratory infections. Pediatricians are also highly trained to diagnose and treat developmental issues and childhood diseases.
As a parent, it’s nice to know your kids are getting the best care possible and over time your Pediatrician starts to feel like part of the family because they know you and your so well.
