Pediatric care is highly collaborative, with the pediatrician working closely with other specialists and healthcare professionals. The field of pediatrics has several sub-specialties for children with complex health problems who require different treatment than an adult with the same condition.
FUN FACT: The word pediatrics literally means “healer of children.” It is derived from two Greek words – pais, meaning child, and iatros, meaning doctor or healer.
Pediatrics is a relatively new medical specialty that was introduced and developed by the father of pediatrics, Abraham Jacobi, in the mid-1800s. We are proud to continue his work by providing top-notch pediatric care.
