As a child, or perhaps as you were raising your own children, you went to a pediatrician for your medical care. Pediatricians specialize in the health and wellness of children. They have received specialized training to diagnose and treat ailments that are specific to children. They know what is normal and what is not normal about development.
There are many types of specialists. They have received advanced education and clinical training to be experts in their field. Just as pediatricians are specialists for children, there is a field of specialists for older adults, known as geriatrics.
