Congratulations! The birth of a new baby is an exciting time for parents. Choosing names, decorating the baby’s room, and deciding which essentials still need to be purchased are all important issues to address. Also, among important decisions to make is choosing your child’s doctor. For your baby’s medical care, you may choose a pediatrician or a family practitioner. The two types of doctors differ in that, following medical school, a pediatrician receives exclusive training specializing in the care of children from birth to late adolescence. Pediatricians are considered child health experts and remain current on children’s healthcare by attending conferences and seminars that focus strictly on pediatric issues.
