Watching and helping children grow up is one of life's most rewarding tasks. I enjoy guiding parents, children and adolescents, giving them the information they need to make sound decisions. I am conservative with most treatments. Most childhood illness requires supportive care. Preventing accidents and illness is better than treating them. However, serious medical illness should have the best, most modern and technically proficient medical care available.
