An infectious disease specialist has specialized training in the diagnosis and treatment of contagious diseases.
Infectious diseases, also known as contagious or transmissible diseases, are those that stem from pathogen from a host organism. These infections may spread to other carriers through physical touch, airborne inhalation, bodily fluids or contaminated foods.
Infectious disease specialists identify whether the disease is caused by bacteria, a virus, a fungus or a parasite often through blood tests and then determine what course of treatment, if any, is necessary.
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.

Self-verified patient of Dr. Nizar F Maraqa - Posted on June 3rd, 2016
I brought my 1 year old daughter in to see Dr Maraqa for some on going concerns I have been having and he seriously answered all of my questions with ease and no judgment. We had to wait in the exam room a little longer than I would have liked but he spends extra time with his patients answering questions, definitely worth the wait. He is absolutely wonderful and is so knowledgeable. I would 100% recommend Dr Maraqa and any one in his office to any and everyone.
