Having a child is one of the greatest treasures in the world. You would want to ensure that your child is healthy and happy in this world, and get him the best treatment whenever he needs it. As a parent, it can get confusing for you to choose between a general physician and a pediatrician. If you have your own family doctor, why pay extra for another doctor, right? However, pediatricians are specially trained to focus on your child’s physical, mental and emotional well-being and can understand your child in a way that no general doctor can.
At Premier Pediatrics, we strive to treat your child like our own and provide them with the best care that they need. From the time they are born, till they turn into adolescence, we treat your child from all diseases and help you understand them better emotionally and mentally. We provide our services to Crystal River, Homosassa, Inverness, Ocala, The Villages and Williston. If you are from any of these areas, feel free to contact us today.
Here are some more reasons why a pediatrician is a better option than a general physician for your child:
One reason why you need to take your child to a pediatrician is to monitor his or her developmental progress or milestones. Your child will be weighed and measured at each visit to evaluate his growth. A pediatrician will show you how your kid compares to other kids of the same age and gender so you can see how your child is progressing. The pediatrician will also help you keep a check on any developmental delays.
- Understands your child better
Kids are simply not small adults and pediatricians understand exactly that. They have different symptoms from adults and may need different prescriptions or treatments than adults. A pediatrician is trained to recognize these differences, especially with newborns and young adults.
