Pediatric Care Q & A

Why is it important for my child to see a pediatrician rather than a general practitioner?

General practitioners are skilled medical professionals with extensive experience in treating a broad array of conditions in patients of all ages. While there’s nothing “wrong” with the care and services a general practitioner provides, because childhood is a time of rapid physical and emotional growth and development, it may be more beneficial to see a doctor with special training in diagnosing and treating diseases and developmental disorders that occur during childhood. Pediatricians are skilled at identifying even subtle signs that can indicate an underlying problem, and because they focus only on the needs of kids, they can also develop customized care plans that take every aspect of the child’s life into consideration.

How often should my child visit the pediatrician’s office?

Because newborns, infants, and toddlers are growing and developing so rapidly, they should see the doctor more often for checkups than older children and adults. We recommend office visits monthly from 1 through 6 months of age, then again at 9 months, 1 year, 18 months, and 2 years. Beginning at age 3, children should have regular wellness exams and checkups every 12 months, and they should also see the pediatrician if they develop illnesses like the flu or earaches or if they have unusual or persistent symptoms.
