A pediatrician doctor deals with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases in children from birth to 18 years of age. Pediatricians are not only involved about the physical but also the mental health of children. Treatment begins with taking weight, height, head and chest circumference measurements, which is followed by examining the child's organs and body system. Doctor may ask for further examination and consultation from other specialists, if necessary. Doctor may also give nutrition and proper diet recommendations, with health-improving measures, vaccinations in order to prevent chronic diseases. Monthly dynamic monitoring of child development from birth to 1 year is essential.
