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.
- Pediatric Endocrinology
Endocrinologists treat disorders related to our glands and the hormones they produce. Because hormones play a key role in the growth and development of children, these conditions often pose different threats to children than they do adults. That’s where a pediatric endocrinologist comes in.
They can diagnose and treat hormonal disorders such as abnormal thyroid function, growth complications and early or delayed puberty. Ambiguous genitals as well as ovarian and testicular dysfunction are also part of their expertise. Childhood obesity, diabetes and problems with low blood sugar also tie back to hormone function and may require consulting with a pediatric endocrinologist.

I was diagnosed with growth hormone deficiency and an inactive pituitary gland when I was 15. Due to my lack of growth, I had become obese. When the insurance company refused to pay for my treatment, this doctor threatened to take them to court for perpetuating childhood obesity. Within a few days we received a letter from insurance stating all the new prescriptions they now cover, top of the list was the one I needed. This man is my hero.
I called Cooks Childrens "on call" line. I have been very pleased with the whole experience of my child being diagnosed with Diabetes type 1 ( in whatever shape or form can be a good experience. It is what it is). Last night, I called the on call line because my son just had just received the pump that morning and his BG was way high for his usual. We tested for keytones and since March, this is my first experience with them. I tried to read my book but was unable to figure out what to do and I want to be certain I was taking care of him correctly. As I'm sure most parents would. I received a call from a very loud, over-talking doctor who really didn't even want to listen to what I had to say. I tried to explain we corrected and accounted for carbs and we were drinking water. It's the moment where you forget all you were taught. I needed reassurance. I didn't receive that. What I did get was someone VERY un-interested, in a hurry and almost yelling at me, unprofessional man. He told me that "I needed to call the hospital because I didn't have any idea what I was doing." It was not until I had to yell back and tell him if he took a moment to listen to what I had to say and that my mother died from this disease and I cried that he slowed down enough to listen. At the beginning of my conversation he made it seem as he no idea about diabetes and now that I googled him, I am floored to see that he is a pediatric endocrinologist!!! At the end of the conversation he said well "Well I don't know, sounds like you're doing all the right things and good luck." Super reassuring! I then called a friend whose daughter had diabetes. He was way more helpful. Very uneasy feeling. If you hate to be bothered then maybe get a new job!
