Children are always prone to diseases. So, no hospital or medical institution is complete without a pediatric department. The role of a pediatrician is vital to manage the physical, behavioral, and mental care for children from birth until the age of 18. The pediatric department of Med 7 Medical Centre is always well equipped and ready to take good care of your child’s health. We have trained pediatricians to diagnose and treat a broad range of childhood illnesses, from minor health problems to serious diseases. Our main services are pediatric consultation and vaccination for children.

Pediatric consultation is the medical process involving the assessment and diagnosis of conditions affecting children and, to a certain extent, teens, as well as the management of the overall health and wellness of the patients through certain preventative measures. We offer services like physical examinations, growth and development tracking, diagnosis of health issues in children, guidance to nutrition and physical fitness, finding solutions to behavioral and emotional problems etc.
