Pediatricians are specialised medical doctors that focus on children. They diagnose and treat them from an infant to young adult stages of life. Some of the medical issues that pediatricians deal with include illness, injuries and disorders. Pediatricians monitor the development of children and give immunisations as needed. Pediatricians work with parents on how to care for new babies and offer advice on the development of children until they become adults.
