Pediatricians are doctors who manage the health of your child, including physical, behavior, and mental health issues. They’re trained to diagnose and treat childhood illnesses, from minor health problems to serious diseases. Pediatricians treat children from birth until the age of 18 years and in some countries until the age of 21 as adolescent medicine is a subspecialty of pediatrics. Think of the pediatrician as the GP of the pediatric field as he discovers and treats complicated cases. He may refer them for specialized care but he will maintain the full picture of the child’s health to help deliver holistic medical care.
