About

Bio

My name is Dr. Lori Semel. I am a board certified pediatrician and board eligible neonatologist. I have had my own private practice for 17 years. I started doing virtual consultations 18 years ago when I was pregnant with my middle son and on bed rest. I look forward to answering all your questions with compassion and expertise. I have recently gotten my diploma in aesthetic medicine with a specialty in injectibles, acne and spider vein sclerosis.

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.

Flumist: The Flumist vaccine will not be available for the 2016/2017 flu season. I would start by calling the physicians office and ask how he had it available?

Plan B: The morning after pill can certainly change the menstrual cycle for the next month. If you did not have unprotected sex after the pill, it is unlikely to be a pregnancy. If your period does not arrive for the next cycle, see your Caregiver.

Belly Button: A small amount of discharge around the belly button or umbilical stump is normal But if there is a significant amount or any redness, it should be looked at. Could be an early infection.
