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.
A dermatologist is a doctor who has extensive training and knowledge of the skin, scalp, hair and nails and treats conditions that affect those areas. These doctors will evaluate any abnormality, blemish or lesion on the skin in order to determine the cause and will determine a course of treatment.
Dermatologists provide patients with full body scans in order to identify any signs that are indicative of an illness that requires treatment, such as skin cancer. These specialists may also provide cosmetic services, such as mole removal, scar diminishing treatments and even botox and face lifts.

He has the worst bedside manner. He made my rare auto immune disorder worse by cutting out the scabs and creating an open wound that I've had for 2 months now. When I went back he debried my wound without numbing even though the nurse had the shot in her hand and didn't even stop when I was crying in pain. I'm now going to a wound clinic and they do for bed what I thought which is you don't want to cut or debried the Wounds I have due to the disorder. I'm in daily pain because of what this man did to me.
Passman has been my dermatologist for years. He also sees two of my children as patients. He hears your concern from his nurse. He does quickly diagnose. I have never had issues with him failing to address my concerns. However, as a medical professional myself, I can see how using medical terminology might come off as condescending to those unfamiliar with the jargon. I was surprised to read some of the reviews posted here. I am confident in his expertise and often recommend him to friends. I don't find him offensive. He is short and to the point. No need to waste patient's time or his. He is confident in his knowledge, and is quick to say if he doesn't know as well (meaning he can exclude what your primary physician thought it was, but he can't explain the cause because it's not a dermatologic problem as suspected). He doesn't ask patients to schedule follow ups at unnecessarily frequent intervals. Once a problem has been successfully addressed (as determined at a follow up in a few months) he tends to recommend annual followups just to renew medications and document effectiveness of treatment.
