A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

The BEST Pediatrician EVER! Dr. Geisert not only ensures that your child is cared for but checks to ensure that you are comfortable with the care you are going to need to provide and have a clear understanding of what the plan is, possible obstacles and time frame in which treatment should resolve the issue.
My children (ages 3 & 5) have been patients of Dr. Geisert for almost 4 years now. She does a great job and my children trust and like her. She has been spot-on with every diagnosis she's given us and always make sure we don't leave her office with any unasked questions. I appreciate that Dr. Geisert has a nurse on-call 24/7 and I can contact them outside of normal business hours. My son received 4 shots today and they brought three nurses in to administer the shots, which was completed in about 10 seconds. I would have hated to have one nurse give one shot at a time, which would have taken much longer and would have been more traumatic for my child. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
