A neonatologist is a pediatric medical doctor who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders in newborns. Neonatologists are usually consultants and work in neonatal intensive care units, providing care for premature infants or those born with infections or other health problems.
Neonatologists can be board-certified through the Board of Pediatrics, which is recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties.
