Pediatric gastroenterologists are specialists who treat children from the newborn period through young adulthood. Since children express their concerns differently than adults, and they sometimes cannot answer medical questions, it is important to learn of alternative methods of patient evaluation. These specialized physicians focus on problems unique to pediatric patients, including GI-related growth problems, physical and emotional development, age-related social or family issues, and medical/genetic history.
Pediatric gastrointestinal pathology is wide-ranging, encompassing congenital disorders to acquired ones, but abdominal pathology can often be difficult to diagnose in an adult, not to mention a child. Keeping a high index of suspicion for a broad differential diagnosis is important for elucidating the key signs and symptoms that may lead to a specific diagnosis.

He manages to present the key information in really short time without lacking explanation where it might be needed. All of his lectures are wonderful, no exceptions.
Dr. Alverson along with Dr. Raj are the reason I joined Lecturio. Together, they got me covered in pediatric and adults. Dr. Alverson’s grasp on everything pediatric is such that he is able to convey every piece of information clearly and precisely and more importantly makes it stick. I can easily recall information I learned from him not because I have great memory (I don’t) but because he is that kind of teacher. I know you know which kind I’m talking about. I’m considering pediatrics so he’s basically my idol currently.
