Pediatrics

What Is Pediatrics?

The English word pediatrics comes from two Greek words: pais (child) and iatros (doctor or healer). At The Vancouver Clinic, this connection and distinction is at the heart of our work. Among the many goals of pediatrics include reducing infant and child rate of deaths, controlling the spread of infectious disease, promoting healthy lifestyles at an early age, and helping to support children, adolescents and their families when dealing with chronic conditions. Pediatricians are concerned with the immediate needs of sick or injured children, along with a child’s long-term health and quality of life.

How We Are Different

Our pediatricians see healthy and sick children from birth to 18 years old. We’re with them through every stage of development—their growth pains, immunizations, mishaps, and the great stories they live and tell along the way.

We engage with children in ways that help them feel as comfortable as possible—telling jokes, making them smile, and giving them as much information as they want. You never know—they may want to grow up and be doctors or nurses one day! Even if they don’t, we’re setting the foundation for life-long relationships they’ll have with medical professionals. We help them see that the doctor’s office is a safe and good place to be, even when they’re sick.
