We continue to update and improve our information that we provide in caring for your child. Many handouts are available on common pediatric concerns and illnesses. Please feel free to request a copy at any time you are in the office and feel free to discuss them with your doctor or nurse; ask questions when they arise.

One of our goals is to help provide you with the information to best care for your child. Our handouts are intended as a way to share information with you. We believe that parents are a part of the medical care team. You know your child better than anyone else, and the more you know about your child's health, the better team member you can be. Parents receive ongoing health advice from friends, relatives, newspapers, magazines, radio, television, and the Internet. Unfortunately, information from such sources may be confusing, conflicting, or even alarming. Our intention is that these handouts will provide accurate, up-to-date, straightforward health advice that you can learn from, refer to, and share with others who are involved in your child's care.

If you have questions about these handouts or your child's health, do not hesitate to call us. We appreciate the opportunity to be a part of your child's care!
