How will you be taking care of your child's growth?

Lets see!

Pediatrics is a branch of medical science that deals with the medical care of infants, children, and adolescents.

When the daily concerns of a child such as tantrums at bedtime, social crippling, shyness, delayed speech, toilet training, and finicky eating become overwhelming for parents, they expect their child’s pediatrician to have solutions or uncover their kid’s developmental problems.

Even if your child is physically healthy, these behavioral traits might need some medical attention.

At Chaitanya hospital, a team of a qualified and experienced pediatrician is always available 24×7 at your service who let your kid completely embrace his/her childhood without you having to worry about anything.

Happy Children, Happy Mothers

What is a Pediatrician?

A pediatrician is a medical doctor who specializes in the care of children. Pediatricians have undergone specialized training in the health and illnesses of infants, teens and young adults.  We provide preventive health care for children in good health and medical care for children who are acutely or chronically ill. We also provide parents with support and advice with issues such as growth and development, safety and prevention, nutrition, and emotional wellness to foster a lifetime of good health.

Can I meet my pediatrician before my baby is born?

Yes, in fact, we strongly encourage parents-to-be to visit our office for a prenatal consultation or to meet us during one of our monthly new baby classes held at our office.

How often should my child see the pediatrician?

Your child should be seen for an illness, and equally important, scheduled well-child exams. Well-child exams provide the best opportunity for our providers to observe the progress of your child’s physical and mental growth and development.  Your child’s daycare, pre-school, K-12, and athletic programs each require a health form at the beginning of the school year – keep up with your well-visit appointments for your children and this process will go smoothly!

Well-child visits are also a good time for parents to raise questions and concerns about a child’s development, behavior, nutrition, safety, and overall well-being.

Why does my child need to receive vaccinations?

Immunizations are a series of shots given to children at different ages to help ward off serious, and potentially fatal, childhood diseases. According to Pediatrics, vaccinations have reduced the number of infections from vaccine-preventable diseases by more than 90%.
