The goals of a pediatrician include:
- Building long-lasting relationships with parents and children regarding the child’s health
- Promoting healthy lifestyles
- Monitoring proper developmental progress
- Helping ease pain or the problems of chronic health conditions in children
- Preventing injury
- Identifying behavioral issues
