Children's Health and Safety
Like us on Facebook!
These are answers to questions I'm often asked in my real office
about children's health and safety issues.
CAUTION: The information and advice I give is intended
only as general information, NOT as advice on how to deal with a particular
child's situation and problems. If your child has a specific problem you
need to ask your pediatrician about it -- often, only a careful exam can
answer your concerns, and I can't give every answer to every possible situation
here. Also, unless your child is a regular patient of mine, I cannot give you
specific medical advice by E-mail. (I can't give you accurate information about
your child without seeing and examining him or her.)
