I have been a board certified general pediatrician for 14 years, at academic medical centers. I give a lot of advice to friends and family members about their children and medical issues that pertain to children and I thought it may be helpful to start a blog for others to read about those issues as well. I am starting this blog to help people with general pediatric medical issues. Of course this information will not substitute for medical care for your child in times of illness and I cannot give specific advice to anyone. There are many medical websites out there these days but I feel that they give some very general information and for most people that I know, it is usually not enough. If anyone has any thoughts about what topics would be interesting to read about, please post in the comment section. I am by no means familiar with all the ins and outs of blogging so forgive me if my site is not fancy!
