One of the most widely sought-after doctors is a good pediatrician. Nearly 107,000 are listed here, with the most commonly accepted insurance plans including Cigna, Blue Cross Blue Shield and Aetna coverage.

Pediatricians treat children from infancy into adulthood, with a focus on their mental and social health and development, along with their physical care. The specialty developed in the 1930s, as society began to realize that children were medically different from adults and needed care and treatment that reflected that understanding. Regular health exams to monitor a child’s growth and development, along with immunizations and other preventive and well-care services, are a big part of pediatric practice.

Pediatricians see their role in the context of the extended family and community. They help parents learn to provide the best possible home environment and care for growing children, and they also understand how school, sports and the community affect their lives.
