    What is pediatrics?

    Pediatrics is a branch of internal medicine that focuses on children's health. A pediatrician is a primary care doctor for children that oversees a child's mental, behavioral, and physical well being from birth until the age of 18.

    All board-certified pediatricians have specialized education in children's health, in addition to their medical school training. There are also pediatricians with healthcare subspecialties - like pediatric cardiologists, pediatric dermatologists, and pediatric neurologists. These doctors are qualified to diagnose and treat acute and chronic diseases, and can often offer preventative care.

    What are the benefits of booking a visit with a pediatrician for my child?

    Because children are different from adults when it comes to anatomy, psychology, immune system strength, development, and metabolism. Children can benefit greatly from seeing board-certified pediatricians who specialize in the kinds of care they need. Pediatricians can:

    • Perform physical exams and wellness check-ups.

    • Give immunizations (vaccinations).

    • Conduct speech therapy.

    • Offer guidance for pain management.

    • Check for milestones in skills, behavior, and growth.
    • Answer any questions you might have in regards to your child's development.

    • Diagnose and treat diseases including illness, infection, as well as injuries.

    What is the difference between a pediatrician and a family doctor?

    Put simply, pediatricians treat kids, family doctors treat all members of the family - from your infant to your spouse.

    Family doctors often have a more holistic understanding of genetic health issues that run in your family, helping them tailor care directly to your family's needs.

    No matter your choice of primary care doctor, Sesame can help you find quality affordable health care. On Sesame, you get to choose who you'd like to see, for upfront prices, on your schedule. Yep. It's really that simple.

    Should I find a pediatrician before my child is born?

    It's recommended.

    Though many pregnant women use obstetricians/gynecologists to take care of their health care needs before the baby is born, there are significant benefits to getting to know a pediatrician before birth. Pediatricians can offer a number of services to new moms, including lactation services to help support breastfeeding.

    So affordable. So simple. So easy to use.
    You've never seen prices this good because healthcare has never been this simple.
