What is a Pediatrician?
Pediatricians specialize in the medical care of children, including infants and adolescents, up to age 21. The main difference with pediatricians and adult medicine is the body size and how congenital defects, genetic dispositions and developmental issues are of particular importance to a pediatrician. The physiology of an infant or child can change the medication prescribed and the outcome of diagnosing illness, as compared to an adult.
