Why a Child Needs a Paediatrician?
Some of the reasons why a person should prefer a paediatrician over a family doctor are:
Paediatricians have special training in children’s health.
Since they only deal with children in their practice, they tend to have a lot of experience
in recognising as well as treating childhood illnesses.
If a child is born early or has a health condition that requires close monitoring, a
paediatrician can offer more specialised care as compared to a family doctor.
