About

Bio

Dr. Rodbell, born and raised in Atlanta, is proud to practice in the community in which he grew up. He and his wife have six wonderful children (pictured is Zevi, born in December, 2008). Dr. Rodbell has an eclectic interest in all aspects of Pediatrics. If you've spent any amount of time in his office, or if you've read enough healthTap answers, you'll begin to learn "Rodbell's Rules." These witty, common-sense, thought-provoking, and often probing observations about society, Pediatrics, and life in general capture--in microcosm--his insightful approach to patient care, and his child-like curiosity about life.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

Popsicles!: That's right, popsicles. Cold and soothing, sometimes it's the only thing kids are willing to try when their mouth is so sore. Popsicles distract from the pain, while affording some much-needed hydration in a child who is probably avoiding, if not flat-out refusing, most food. Avoid citrus juices (painful). Make your own to save money. If your child is dehydrated, try pedialyte pops.

When 1st side EMPTY: Until you're skilled at nursing, "finish the first side first." in a letdown, the foremilk is hi in lactose, the hindmilk hi in fat. Babies need both. Many babies who feed both sides get only the foremilk on each side, ie. Twice the lactose (=gassiness) and hardly any of the fat (=starving again 10-30min later).

No: The best use of cabbage leaves I am aware of is frozen cabbage on the skin to relieve engorgement or sore nipples. Cheap, easy to come by, and many moms say it works wonders. When a mom wants to increase her milk supply, a multitude of factors come into play, so i meet with her in the office to properly assess her unique circumstances.
