Pediatricians are physicians who care for children from birth to age 18. They are responsible for:
- Well-baby examinations
- Diagnostic medical care to detect congenital conditions or diseases
- Office and hospital medical care of sick children
- Referrals to specialists when needed
Pediatricians focus on wellness and prevention of disease in much of their care. Office visits also include education of the parent on parenting skills and how to provide a safe, healthy environment for infants and children.
