Pediatricians are dedicated to the care and treatment of children, focusing on the physical, emotional, and social health of infants, children, and adolescents up to adulthood (typically age 18). They concentrate on prevention, detection, and management of physical, behavioral, developmental, and social problems that affect children. Besides providing care during routine childhood illnesses, bumps and bruises, Pediatricians perform routine wellness checks and perhaps most importantly, act as a guide and support for parents - helping you to learn and provide the best of nutrition, care, and support to assist your child to a healthy adulthood.
