Department ofPediatrician

Children undergo rapid physical and mental changes as they grow. Pediatricians understand this fact and assess a child’s health status based on the normal ranges for their age.

Pediatricians can help diagnose medical conditions in children. Depending on the condition, parents or caregivers may take their children to a primary care pediatrician or a pediatric specialist.

What do they do?

Pediatricians perform a diverse range of health-related services that range from health and wellness screenings to management of complex medical conditions.

Pediatricians generally perform the following procedures:

  • physical exams
  • giving vaccinations
  • treating injuries, including fractures and dislocations
  • evaluating a child’s physical, emotional, and social development
  • prescribing medications, such as pain relievers and antibiotics
  • providing general health advice
  • diagnosing and treating various medical conditions
  • connecting families with other pediatric specialists, if needed
