Pediatric Medicine Q & A

What is pediatric medicine?

Pediatric medicine encompasses the complete care of infants, children, and adolescents. In addition to health care for your children, your doctor also pays close attention to developmental milestones throughout your child’s life. This ensures that they are developing physically and mentally as they should, and your doctor recognizes any areas of concern in their early stages. 

Pediatric medicine also includes the tenets of good nutrition, exercise, creativity, and safety, so your children can thrive. Genesis Natural Medicine Center is a family practice, so every member of your family can receive the highest standard of comprehensive health care at every stage of life. 

What is the goal of pediatric medicine?

The goal of pediatric medicine is to foster your child's best health and allow them to develop to their full potential in childhood and beyond. Pediatric medicine means that your doctor cares for your children when they are well and treats health conditions, too. Your doctor diagnoses and provides immediate treatment and management of childhood issues, including:

  • Injuries
  • Organ disease and function
  • Infections
  • Cancer
  • Genetic diseases and dysfunctions
  • Developmental delays
  • Functional disabilities
  • Behavioral problems
  • Mental disorders
  • Physical disabilities 

At Genesis Natural Medicine Center, the team of physicians takes a whole-person, holistic approach to your child’s health care. They recommend natural treatments whenever possible and beneficial, often in conjunction with traditional medicine. Your child’s doctor may also collaborate with pediatric specialists whenever necessary so your family receives the best treatment available.

How is pediatric medicine different from adult medicine?

Pediatric medicine is tailored to your infant’s or child’s small physical body — one that is substantially different from an adult body. Your doctor treats your child based on his or her needs, rather than treating them like a smaller version of an adult. The caring family medicine physicians at Genesis Natural Medicine Center are highly skilled to be able to treat patients of all ages, including babies. 

Receiving outstanding, personalized health care from birth means that your child has the foundation to grow and thrive not only in their developmental years, but well beyond.
