PEDIATRIC MEDICINE – ENGLISH SPEAKING PEDIATRICIAN
A sick child, worried and anxious in a doctor’s office can be a stressful situation for parents and non-pediatric specialists. Children are often nonverbal and communicating with them requires practice and patience. Pediatric specialists, with the support of parents, are able to persuade a child to collaborate during exams and procedures.
We believe that the practice of pediatrics is unique among medical specialties
Although the presence of a parent is crucially important in developing a successful physician-patient relationship, children are more willing to cooperate when the pediatrician spends some time interacting with them, rather than just inquiring parents.

That’s why having an English speaking pediatrician is so important.
Choosing a correct vocabulary is one of the most important skills and communicates understanding and competence, demonstrating attention to the concern. When the child and the pediatrician develop a good relationship getting back to health is easier.
