Children have different needs than adults.
Many conditions that affect children are rarely seen in adults, and common illnesses in adults may manifest themselves differently in children. For these reasons, when your child is sick, it is best to consult with a specialist that deals specifically with children and is experienced in treating the full range of childhood illnesses.
Tenet Florida Physician Services (TFPS) pediatric specialists are some of the best physicians in the region for their areas of expertise. These specially trained physicians, along with dedicated nurses and healthcare professionals, bring advanced pediatric specialty care to Palm Beach County- eliminating the need for travel to Miami or Orlando.
