I have 11 years of experience, and specialize in the field of pediatrics with specific knowledge in the areas of acute childhood illnesses, child development and newborn care. I have published on such topics as contagiousness of childhood illnesses, swine flu and childhood asthma. I have testified on child maltreatment and rape. I am an online pediatric. I answer questions from parents regarding everything from normal versus abnormal child development, to determining the cause of fevers in babies.
