    Neonatologists have special training required to evaluate the problems in newborns and treat them properly. These neonatologists take care of newborn babies who are born before their bodies are formed. Neonatologists are passionate and genuine, willing to work long hours to take care of newborn babies. Patience is the main qualification of neonatologists to show sensitivity toward the little patients.
