Health Advice for Parents

Becoming a wonderful parent is a process. Our practice believes in continuing education for children and their families, and we take the time to give you the tools you need to create a healthy and happy environment for you and your child. Let us know if there is a topic you’d like us to cover in links and resource pages.

Here are some of our favorite links:

  • We recommend the website of the American Academy of Pediatrics for reliable information for many topics.
  • A website with great resources on hazardous chemicals.
  • This is a great travel resource and also has excellent information about vaccines and other healthcare-related regulations
