pediatrician (noun) a doctor who specializes in the treatment of children's diseases.
The illnesses of children are attended on by pediatricians. Pediatricians study and treat children's diseases.
- In these days of narrow specialization, it is doubtful if a child specialist that a pediatrician is, can cure the child of its diseases, because common sense tells us that a disease should be viewed against the general background of the patient's condition.
- Pediatricians should be very patient and treat their patients with great care, because children are very delicate and cannot make clear their problems.
