Paediatrics deals with the medical care of infants, children, and adolescents. The word means healer of children and derives from two Greek words: pais = child, and iatros = healer. Children have their own physiologies and specific medical conditions and needs that do not always simply translate in to adult medicine.
Fevers, rashes, bowel disturbances, skin conditions, eating and growth issues, coughs and colds are concerning to parents and therefore medical opinion is often sought. When we care for your child we also care for you as the parent; over many years we have learned that parents are always right about the health of their children!
