When a pediatrician comes to mind, you probably think about treating a virus or infection, broken bones, wellness checkups, vaccines, and the like. But there are so many behavorial issues that arise seemingly without a direct medical course of action. And, often, whether your child is experiencing a transitional or long-term problem, behavioral medicine is the answer. An integration of medicine and psychology, behavorial medicine focuses on all the avenues of treatment, both physical and mental, and can treat, among many conditions, the following examples:

 Developmental

 Behavioral

 toilet-training  attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder
 bedwetting  oppositional-defiant disorder
 thumbsucking  anxiety/depression
 conflicts over meals  conduct problems
 discipline issues
