What is the age population? Is it more like 2-10 or 10-17...? What's the youngest patient you got and what is the oldest? Why do people dislike peds so much?

The youngest patient I cared for was 3 months old and failure to thrive, my oldest was 15 and had Sickle Cell. Peds was ok, as far as my rotations went at least. U liked taking care if the 3 month old and seeing him start to gain weight and return to a normal happy little baby. Awwweee! Lol.
The unit we did rotations on took from Infant to 17. My old pediatrician took pt. up until they were 21. Honestly, he was such a good doctor I just stopped going to him when I turned 20 this past October (2012). Finally I have him up. Mostly because I started getting questioning looks from the other kids there. Rotfl! I have a "big boy" doctor now! Lol!
