That is why the best specialists are attracted to work in the Dobrobut MC, among whom there are candidates and doctors of medical sciences. To maintain a high level of qualifications, doctors attend conferences and congresses held in Europe and Ukraine. In addition, the annual training in the life-saving course for children in the Authorized training center (Poland), run by the American Association of Cardiologists, testifies to the highest level of training of our specialists in providing highly qualified care.
The child is usually monitored by a pediatrician on an ongoing basis. At the request of the parents, it is possible to replace a specialist. Complex clinical cases are considered by convening a council.

CHILD SPECIALIST OF NEW GENERATION
The Dobrobut network of medical clinics has brought medical care to children in Kyiv to a new level that meets international standards. Our network no longer has pediatricians in the usual sense of the word, but there are child specialists.
A child specialist is a “generalist” children's doctor, whose main task is to prevent the child from getting sick. For this, modern complex methods are used, including psychological ones.
We strive to save the child from the fear of the hospital and doctors: our specialists minimize the likelihood of unpleasant sensations in children associated with going to the doctor. In our clinics, they do not do any unnecessary tests, examinations, and procedures, so as not to injure the baby's psyche once again.
Parents do not need to visit different specialists to get the help they need - in Dobrobut clinics, it is enough to make an appointment with a pediatrician. This specialist has a large amount of knowledge and practical experience. He will independently make a qualified diagnosis and prescribe an effective treatment.
In our network of healthcare facilities, a child specialist also helps newborns.
The work schedules of specialists are drawn up for maximum convenience of clients and allow you to consult at the clinic or home, and during a visit to the clinic, visit up to 5 specialists at the same time. This opportunity is relevant both for undergoing patronage of newborns and for preventive examinations upon admission to kindergarten and school.
