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.)
