A pediatrician is a medical doctor who specializes in the care of children. Pediatricians have undergone specialized training in the health and illnesses of infants, teens, and young adults. All of our pediatricians are certified by the American Board of Pediatrics, after passing a comprehensive exam, completing 4 years of medical school and 3 years of hospital and clinic training.
Pediatricians provide preventative healthcare for children in good health and medical care for children who are acutely or chronically ill. They also provide parents with support and advice with issues such as growth and development, safety and prevention, nutrition, and emotional wellness to foster a lifetime of good health.
