FAQs and Answers

Pediatrics is a medical specialty focused on the physical, emotional, and social health of children from birth to adolescence. Pediatricians diagnose and treat illnesses, monitor growth and development, and provide preventive health maintenance for children.

A child should visit a pediatrician shortly after birth, typically within the first week of life. Subsequent well-child visits are recommended at 1 month, 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, 9 months, 12 months, 15 months, 18 months, and annually from 2 years of age.

Well-child visits are routine check-ups where a pediatrician assesses a child's growth and development, administers vaccinations, provides parental guidance on nutrition and safety, and addresses any concerns about the child's health.

Pediatricians specialize in treating children and are trained to meet children's specific health needs. Family doctors treat patients of all ages, from infants to the elderly, and may not have as focused an expertise in pediatric care.

Children need several vaccinations to protect against diseases such as measles, mumps, rubella, diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, polio, hepatitis B, and varicella. The vaccination schedule is determined by health authorities and may vary by region.

Pediatricians use growth charts to track a child's growth over time, comparing their height, weight, and head circumference against national averages for their age and gender. Developmental screenings assess milestones in speech, movement, behavior, and skills.

Pediatricians treat a wide range of conditions, including infections, injuries, congenital conditions, and diseases like asthma and diabetes. They also manage behavioral disorders, developmental disabilities, and mental health issues.

Yes, pediatricians manage chronic conditions, coordinating care with pediatric specialists when necessary. They play a key role in helping families navigate long-term care plans for conditions like asthma, diabetes, and special needs.

During a pediatric emergency visit, the doctor will quickly assess your child's condition to provide immediate treatment. The visit may involve diagnostic tests and, if necessary, hospitalization for further treatment.

Prepare a list of questions or concerns about your child's health, including any changes in behavior, eating habits, or development. Bring your child's health records and a list of any medications your child is taking.

Pediatricians provide guidance on breast-feeding, formula feeding, introduction of solid foods, and nutritional needs throughout childhood. They can address concerns like allergies, obesity, and eating disorders.

Transitioning to an adult doctor typically occurs during late adolescence or early adulthood, around the ages of 18 to 21. The timing can depend on the child's needs, the pediatrician's policies, and available adult care specialists.
