You wouldn’t be alone if you ever contemplated taking your toddler to just another family physician whenever he/she falls ill. There is however a fine difference between a family physician and a pediatrician (child doctor). While the former is a primary provider of healthcare to all age groups, the latter focuses only on children. More specifically, a pediatrician would have received 3 full years of focused training on child healthcare instead of the usual 6 months that a general physician normally receives. We, at Premier Pediatrics, can be the right choice for you. Backed by a battery of 12 renowned specialists, Premier Pediatrics aspires to be your go-to organization for high-quality family physicians. We can provide you with the right kind of advanced care your children need starting from their birth. We are not only qualified and experienced but we also have the sincerity and compassion for our patients.
Here, we have put together some of the advantages of going to a pediatrician. Take a look.
- Focused understanding of children
Kids aren’t just like adults – they have their own specific medical needs. If your child had a premature delivery, then it is especially beneficial to partner with a pediatrician. Further, they will be able to guide you in the two key elements of a child’s healthcare development, viz developmental and behavioral issues. A pediatrician would typically have a good understanding of age-appropriate milestones and would thereby leverage upon these to make accurate predictions.
- Ability to mix with kids at their level
A pediatrician can proffer a more accurate diagnosis as they possess the ability to bring a child at ease in their office. They can adapt their manner of approaching the case to a manner which kids can feel comfortable with, thereby alleviating their innate fear of visiting a doctor. Further, their offices and waiting rooms are child-friendly and make the whole process seem easier.
