 What is a pediatrician?

Pediatricians care for and manage the physical, mental and emotional health of children. They’re skilled in diagnosing and treating childhood illnesses from the flu and strep throat to more serious diseases.

 What do pediatricians do?

Preventive health maintenance and monitoring

  • Physical exams
  • Vaccinations
  • Track milestones in growth, behavior and skills
  • Wellness education (diet, exercise, hygiene, disease prevention)
  • Diagnose and treat ailments and injuries

Infectious childhood diseases (cold, flu, measles, mumps, chickenpox)

  • Minor injuries
  • Genetic defects
  • Malignancies
  • Referral to specialists if continued care needed

In addition to caring for your children when they become sick, we are also dedicated to keeping them healthy, active and out of the hospital. We recognize the importance of good health for a growing child and our team of pediatricians, family medicine doctors, pediatric subspecialists and other children’s health specialists work with your child to ensure he or she lives a healthy and active life.
