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.

Five years ago my husband and I had our first baby. To everyone's surprise (even my obgyn) our baby was born with a hole on the back of his head and part of his brain was protruding out the hole. We were told that if he lived he would likely be a vegetable. Dr. Roberts saved my son's life. Our beautiful son just turned five and is completely normal. You can't even see his scar, Dr. Roberts did such an amazing job that it is covered by his hair. Our follow up appointments have also been great. He is so caring and compassionate. It might be several weeks before you can get an appointment, but that's because this doctor is busy saving little lives everyday. To this day I pray for God to continue to bless this amazing doctor so that he may continue to bless families the way he has blessed ours. I will always be grateful to this wonderful doctor.
Thank you so much for you and the rest of doctors and staff that did my sons spinal surgery. I don't know if you will ever know how much we appreciate y'all for having this successful surgery. It was a very emotional time for us and 3 years later he is doing awesome and doing the one thing he really loved to do Scooter in competitions and winning!! I thank you so much for making my baby boy healthy again! I/we will always be greatful for y'all!!!
Dr.Roberts had tears as he was discussing post surgery with me. He cares! His follow up appointments with me were as helpful and full of information as I had hoped for. He is a wonderful Dr.
