Understanding the unique health care needs of children

Pediatricians focus on delivering care for infants, children and adolescents. Pediatric care encompasses a broad spectrum of health services ranging from preventive health care to the diagnosis and treatment of acute and chronic diseases. Most family medicine physicians provide care for children of all ages.

Doctors who provide care for children are advocates for the health and development for every child. Dignity Health Medical Group – Dominican pediatric doctors create a nurturing environment, counsel both patients and parents in making healthy choices and provide guidance and education in preventive care. If a health condition arises that requires care from a pediatric specialty physician, your pediatrician will be there to guide you and coordinate all aspects of your child's care.
