Pediatrics is the medical specialty concerned with the health of infants, children, and adolescents; their growth and development, and their opportunity to achieve full potential as adults. As physicians who assume a responsibility for children’s physical, mental, and emotional progress from newborn to maturity, pediatricians must be concerned with social or environmental influences, which have a major impact on the health and well-being of children and their families, as well as with particular organ systems and biologic processes.
At Grants Pass Clinic, our pediatricians are board certified by the American Board of Pediatrics. This means that after medical school, these physicians went on to three year specialty training and then completed extensive examinations in the area of pediatrics and adolescence. In the state of Oregon, you do not have to be board certified to practice pediatrics, but at Grants Pass Clinic, we feel that it is critical to have the added training and expertise required through board certification.
The pediatricians at Grants Pass Clinic truly enjoy working with children and consider it an honor to be involved with their growth and development.
