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.
- Neurology with Special Qualifications in Child Neurology
A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.
A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

My daughter has developed migraines and is also suffering from severe anxiety and depression. Dr. Kang not only was unwilling to discuss potential drug interactions but was also disregardful of my daughter's anxiety by not listening to her during the exam and consultation process. She also regularly made us wait 1 1/2 hours or more for our appointment time.
Although Dr Kang saw my son a long time ago, she is forever in my thoughts. My son had Down syndrome and a seizure disorder,infantile spasms. Local doctors gave me no hope at all. I will never forget Dr Kang's kind,compassionate care.In only week of treatment my son stopped having seizures and will soon be 25 years old...seizure free all this time. He is a happy productive young adult thanks to Dr Kang.
Three generations of my family, including myself, have been treated by Dr.Kang...She is extremely kind and caring while simultaneously being as professional and skilled as they come...My family has seen her for everything from autism to epilepsy (her specialty). Her training (John's Hopkins) is top-drawer, as are her diagnostic and treatment skills. However, her greatest asset is her ability to make her patients and their families feel completely at ease, even when delivering difficult information, while also providing them expert care and treatment planning. Yes, you have to wait awhile to get an appointment and yes you will wait in the office for awhile to see her, but only because she is so caring and thorough. I have referred numerous friends to her over the years and all have thanked me profusely for doing so. If you are in need of a pediatric neurologist, you could NOT put your child in better hands.
