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.
A dermatologist is a doctor who has extensive training and knowledge of the skin, scalp, hair and nails and treats conditions that affect those areas. These doctors will evaluate any abnormality, blemish or lesion on the skin in order to determine the cause and will determine a course of treatment.
Dermatologists provide patients with full body scans in order to identify any signs that are indicative of an illness that requires treatment, such as skin cancer. These specialists may also provide cosmetic services, such as mole removal, scar diminishing treatments and even botox and face lifts.

I think the previous review is odd and does absolutely nothing to inform other potential patients about this physician. Any doctor's office that I've ever gone to, had a policy that you have to re-schedule your appointment if you are more than 15 minutes late. .. I saw Dr.Kos twice for my son--when he was 2 years old and when he was 7. Both times I was told by primary MD that my son needed surgical treatment for his skin problems. Both times Dr.Kos was absolutely right in her diagnosis and helped us avoid potentially risky and unnecessary surgeries. I think she is the best there is--I would recommend her in a heartbeat!!! Would not take my kids to anyone else for complicated derm. problems.
So disappointed! I had an early appointment and got stuck by 2 accidents. I tried calling her office in Vernon Hills to let her staff know and the answering service kept saying it was closed. I finally left a message on the nurses messaging service, but still kept calling and still, it kept saying they were closed. I ended up arriving 25 minutes late. I apologized and told them what happened. They refused to let my daughter be seen unless I waited 2.5 hours. It took me OVER AND HOUR to get there, and I told them I tried calling. The receptionist told me, "Oh you have to press 8 to get through." If I have to press it, why isn't 8 an option when I call in the first place? I sat in the parking lot and cried and had to drive an hour back home again. Not going back.
