What is a Pediatrician?
A pediatrician is a physician whose specific specialty is caring for children from birth through young adulthood. Pediatricians address acute and chronic illnesses, learning disabilities, behavioral issues and the growth and development of children. Our goal is to help ensure that children grow into mentally and physical healthy, productive and happy adults.
