We understand the special health needs of children and can provide the focused care required by infants, toddlers and school-age patients.
Pediatrics is a branch of medicine that focuses on the care and treatment of childhood diseases and the study of normal growth. Physicians who specialize in pediatrics are known as pediatricians.
Pediatricians are trained to recognize and treat congenital defects and provide care for a number of infectious diseases in children. Many of these diseases can be prevented by immunizations, which are given by the pediatrician. In addition, a pediatrician remains alert for disorders that usually first become apparent in childhood, such as allergies, asthma and diabetes.
