What is Pediatrics?
Pediatrics is the specialty dealing with newborns, infants, toddlers, children and adolescents. It includes both the evaluation and treatment of well and ill children. As pediatricians, we evaluate the nutritional, physical, neurologic, developmental and emotional aspects of children. We also do prenatal consultations for both normal and complicated pregnancies.
What Does FAAP Mean?
Our physicians are board-certified by the American Academy of Pediatrics after an intensive 3 year Pediatric residency and have passed a comprehensive examination in the field of pediatrics. They are recertified every 7 years with further examinations to maintain their board-certification. Thus, they are “Fellows of American Academy of Pediatrics”
