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.

I have been seeing Dr. Koeller for my eating disorder for many years. She can be stubborn and strict, which really butts heads with an eating-disordered mindset! If something threatening recovery arises she will stand her ground, even if one's eating disorder is going into panic mode; she is perceptive and can differentiate a healthy from an unhealthy mindset, and will not let the latter win. Having said this, she is also fair and listens well. I found that she is very understanding of what her patients are dealing with and is committed to see them through to recovery (and beyond). I would recommend Dr. Koeller to anyone who needs a physician that will hold them accountable for their actions, will be a good primary practitioner in general, and will help them achieve maintenance in recovery.
I have been seeing Dr.Koeller for just over 2 years throughout my eating disorder recovery. She is supportive of my choices regarding my recovery, and listens and is understanding of what im going through. I feel that I can be open and honest about my thoughts and behaviors, and she will be supportive and encourage me to use my team (therapist or dietitian when appropriate). I feel that she is exactly what I want out of a doctor through my eating disorder treatment. (I had 2 different providers that I had very negative experiences with prior to Koeller)
I have an eating disorder and saw Dr. Koeller, who specializes in them, for a little over a year during my recovery. She was the opposite of supportive. Constant threats of hospitalization occurred and she had a very "my way or the highway" attitude. I decided that I didn't need to see my dietician anymore because I felt comfortable with where I was at and Dr. Koeller said she couldn't see me anymore because "it's my protocol that you see a dietician and if you don't want to follow it, you need to find a new doctor". IF YOU OR YOUR LOVED ONE HAS AN EATING DISORDER, DO NOT SEND HER TO DR. KOELLER!
