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.

Dr. K.P. is a wonderful doctor. He has great bedside manor and is very knowledgeable. He helped us greatly when our son was in the nicu for a week. He seems to really care about his patients and there families and he does not take risks with there health and will make sure they are definitely safe to go home before. Releasing then from the hospital
Dr. Kocherlakota is one of the most wonderful doctors you could ever imagine! He is an amazing neonatologist, and truly cares about each and every little patient (and their family) he has. Our daughter was born at 26 weeks, and he was her doctor in the NICU for her last month there, and he was phenomenal. He treats each baby like they are his only patient and he is so supportive of the parents. Hands down the best doctor you could have for your children.
known as Dr. KP, in my opinion, he is the best doctor in the world. He saved my daughter's life. We love him and will never forget all that he did for us. We felt like he never went home, becuase when out daughter was in the NIC Unit, he was always there taking care of her. You will never find a more dedicated doctor ever. I tell everyone if he told me to go to the bathroom in a bowl and rub it on my daughters head every night, I would no questions asked. This man is truly amazing.
