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.

When my first son was born I was told Dr Chhina was the best of the best, so I decided to choose him as my son's pediatrician! Beside the fact that they take forever to call you in, Dr Chhina is never in his office so patients are forced to see their nurse practitioner. When my son was a month old we were convinced something in the formula was making him Ill he had alot of gas and constipation, I made a appointment and the nurse partitioner suggested a formula his son used because his son did very well with it, so i agreed and had to go back again within a week because it made it worst, once back he dint want to change the formula since his son did well with it my son had to do well with it too, it took about another month to convience him to change his formula! When my son was 6 month old a spider managed to crawl inside his diaper and bite his private, it was very swollen and infected so we rushed him to the ER and again LMC takes forever to get patiences in so we rushed him to Dr Chhinas office only to be told i had to sit and wait for my turn, i showed the receptionist my sons privated which where swollen with puss and blood and that wasent a issue my son was in so much pain i had no choice but to take him to Doctors Hospital and within minutes he was put on antibiotics and was given a shot for the bite!! Very very disappointed with their service both Dr Chhina and Laredo medical center
OMG the receptionist are compltely RUDE. They rather chat amons themselves than to atleast have the courtesy of smiling at the patient. I once time the waiting time and it took 3 HOURS to just call me in. Then another half an hour waiting for the doctor. They have two different waiting rooms but it doesnt matter because they take you in as you came in whether your baby is sick or not. I was at work and my baby was sick, my aunt took her to the clinic but they did not want to take her in because I was not there even though I had called alrady. We had to take her to the ER and they just called and got release from my husband. which Im glad we took her because they figure out within hrs what she had when It had taken 4 months for my baby's doctor to know.
