It’s well known that pediatricians specialize in the medical care of infants, children, and adolescents. But parents sometimes only think of pediatric care as something they seek when their child is sick. Dr. Paul Irra at Naples Pediatrics in Naples, Florida, want you to know that their expertise includes more than sick child care. You can count on them for every aspect of your child’s physical, behavioral, and emotional health.
When selecting a doctor for your child, it’s important to be confident in the doctor’s medical expertise and bedside manner when interacting with your child. Beyond those basics, there’s a vital reason to choose a pediatrician over other doctors like family practitioners: All of a pediatrician’s education, training, and experience focuses on children.
Pediatricians don’t have to worry about the vast scope of diseases found in adults. Because all of their attention focuses on children’s health, pediatricians are fully prepared to pick up on subtle changes in children’s behavior that are vital clues about their health and development.
