Word! Pediatrician

Pediatrician

Say: pee-dee-uh-TRISH-un

Chances are you've been to see a pediatrician lots of times, whether you know it or not. A pediatrician is a doctor who takes care of babies, kids, and teens. You can count on your pediatrician to help you when you're sick — and even better, to help you stay healthy.
