It is important to realize that this is not a substitute for a formal doctor-patient relationship, and that I cannot actually diagnose or treat a child over the Internet. Nevertheless, this correspondence seems to have been quite helpful to many familes. Sometimes, something as simple as an explanation of a basic disease process or a referral to a local specialist is useful.
Feel free to contact me through this Web site, I continue to try to answer questions submitted as quickly as time allows.
