Pediatric care is unique in that it is one area of medicine that focuses on well care. Emphasis is placed on the monitoring of child development and the prevention of illness and disease. As a Pediatrician, Dr. Fries is trained in the general care and treatment of children from infancy through adolescence. He provides anticipatory guidance for children through services such as well-baby care, diagnostic evaluations and screening programs for vision and hearing. His interests within Pediatrics include evaluating children with learning and behavior disorders which interfere with school performance. According to Dr. Fries, another reward in being a Pediatrician is that “I am able to observe the fruits of my labor years longer than some of my other medical colleagues.
