Hi Destiny,
Based on a quick google search, it looks like Pediatrician salary is determined by how specialized your field is. Here's a useful quote from mommd (a website for women in medicine):

As with any medical career, a major determinant of salary is the level of specialization. While the average salary for pediatricians is around $175,000, that of pediatric specialists is typically higher. Pediatricians with at least 3 years experience who are specialized in neurology or oncology/hematology can typically earn up to $250,000, while pediatric surgeons typically earn $400,000-$500,000 a year.

The yearly salary ranges are $120,000 to $160,000 depending on the area of specialty, and where you are located. Pediatrician get paid an annual salary if they work in a hospital, or by the patient if they are in private practice.
