A lot of care and love has to be given to a child to treat their health instead of just giving them medications. You know your child is scared of injections, it is the pediatrician who has to have the presence of mind and patience to manage the child to give the right medication if needed in a right way. If a pediatrician has to discuss a medical condition he/she has to go through a series of meetings with the parents to explain and make them understand. Not all the children are chatterboxes, and some are really hard to communicate. It is their responsibility to understand the mental and physical conditions of your child.
It is also necessary that the pediatrician has a good rapport with the parents of the child.
