Pediatricians specialize in providing medical care for infants, children, adolescents, and young adults. No major companies dominate the industry.
Demand for pediatricians is driven primarily by demographics. The profitability of pediatrics practices depends on efficient operations and health care reimbursement rates. Large practices may be able to leverage the costs of administrative staff and equipment. Small or solo practices may provide a more personalized patient experience and allow doctors more control.
