Welcome to MommyDoc. I am a mom of four and pediatrician who has been in practice for 15 years in the town in which I grew up. I have always wanted to start a blog where moms, health providers, or anyone can come to read articles about various pediatric subjects.
As both a mom and pediatrician, MommyDoc, is about the trials and tribulations of trying to do both jobs on a daily basis. I plan to share stories about patients (with their permission) who have taught me important life lessons, keep you up to date with new pediatric information, and share my own thoughts from time to time.
When looking for a new pediatrician, it might help to know a little more about that individual and their healthcare philosophies before entrusting your children to their care. You know your own child best; always listen to your gut instinct when it comes to their health and safety.
I hope you enjoy this journey with me. There will be some anecdotes about my own children along the way, some opinions thrown in here and there, and parenting experience "from the trenches".
