Following are just a few of the specialties that may have a part in your child's care as they grow and develop:
A pediatrician is medical doctor who manages the health of children from birth until age 21. A pediatrician is trained to diagnose and treat a broad range of childhood illnesses from minor health problems to serious diseases. Pediatricians have graduated from medical school and completed a three-year residency program in pediatrics. A board-certified pediatrician has passed rigorous exams given by the American Board of Pediatrics. To remain certified, pediatricians have to meet regular continuing education requirements.
An allergist/immunologist is a physician specially trained to diagnose, treat and manage allergies, asthma and immunologic disorders. These conditions range from the very common to the very rare, spanning all ages and encompassing various organ systems.
Athletic trainers are health care providers who specialize in the prevention, assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of injuries and illnesses.

Child and adolescent psychiatrists use a combination of biological, psychological and social interventions to treat emotional and behavioral disorders in youth. Psychiatrists are also certified to prescribe medication, which can play a key role in relieving emotional and physical distress allowing children and adolescents to adapt and make meaningful and positive changes.
Acne in teens is a common issue and children of all ages sometimes encounter conditions such as eczema, common warts, molluscum contagiosum, vitiligo, alopecia areata, hemangiomas, and skin infections. Dermatologists specialize in treating these and other skin conditions.
Otolaryngologists, otherwise known as Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) doctors, often treat children with persistent ear, nose, and throat conditions such as tonsillitis, ear infections, inflamed adenoids, and airway obstructions due to muscle issues.
