Pediatric doctors are providers who specialize in care for people under the age of 19. These providers are aware of specific conditions that can affect children and adolescents but often dissipate at adulthood. Pediatric doctors are trained to detect issues that parents are not always able to notice without training. As such, pediatricians are often valuable resources for parents who may have questions about their child’s health and development. The doctors at Gilroy Family Medical Group are dedicated to providing comprehensive and compassionate care to all members of their community, regardless of age.
Like adults, children need a trusted healthcare provider who knows them and their health. Pediatricians have specialized training to not only treat medical conditions common to childhood, but also to make the child feel comfortable and safe. Through prevention of disease through vaccination, early detection and treatment of disorders, and management of chronic conditions, pediatricians help parents manage the quality of life of their child. The doctors at Gilroy Family Medical Group provide diagnosis and treatment of multiple conditions among children and adolescents, including:
Children have different medical needs due to the quick pace of development of their young bodies. Genetic defects can cause problems that, if left untreated, can cause problems for a child during adolescence. It is also essential for developmental and behavioral issues to be diagnosed and treated as early as possible so that the child doesn’t suffer from any long-term negative effects. Finally, due to legal jurisdiction, most children are unable to advocate for their own healthcare. A pediatrician will advocate for children with empirically backed treatments and interventions.
