Having the right pediatrician is very important!
Whether you are a new or experienced parent, having a pediatrician that you know and trust is incredibly valuable as you welcome a baby to your family. The pediatrician you will select will not only be an important medical advisor who knows your family well but also understands various stages of your child's development. Pediatricians understand that children are not simply small adults. Children often present different symptoms from adults. Therefore they may need different prescriptions or treatments than adults. Pediatricians are specially trained to recognize the importance of these differences.
