 A pediatrician is a child's physician who provides preventive health maintenance for healthy children, medical care for children who are acutely or chronically ill. Pediatricians manage the physical, mental, and emotional well being of their patients, in every stage of development, in good health
or in illness.


Generally, pediatricians focus on babies, children, adolescents, and young adults from birth to age 21 years to reduce infant and child mortality, control infectious disease, foster healthy lifestyles and ease the difficulties of children and adolescents with chronic conditions. www.webmd.com
