Pediatricians

A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in treating children. They are well versed in the area of pediatric medicine, including the usual childhood diseases and common issues that face children. The usual age range is from birth to 16, but many pediatricians continue to see their young patients into adulthood, since they know their medical history and the patient is familiar with them.

Not only is a pediatrician available to diagnose the reason behind fevers and vomiting and earaches, they also do well child checkups. This involves doing a thorough check of a baby or child to ensure that they are growing and gaining weight correctly and are not suffering from the early signs of any potential diseases. Pediatricians know to look for certain signals that could mean a baby is having difficulties, or that a child may be getting sick. They are also responsible for vaccinations.

Parents usually take their children to a pediatrician when the child feels ill, is suffering from symptoms they don't understand, or if they suspect something serious. Even if things are all right, the doctor can reassure the parents and give a medical explanation for things like teething or growing pains. A pediatrician can also recommend medicines that will help the child feel better, including prescriptions and over the counter medications.

Some of the more common reasons a pediatrician might be seen include the following:
  • Fevers
  • Vaccinations
  • Stomach Complaints
  • Nausea
  • Pain
  • Sprains
  • Cuts
