I have been a Neonatologist and Pediatrician for over 30 years, and simply love playing with babies and children - what better job could a doctor have ? I have been an academic professor of Pediatrics at Loyola University for 9 years, I have been a private Neonatologist and Pediatrician for over 20 years, and in the middle of my career, spent 5 years as a national medical director for the second largest managed care company in the US. I've seen Pediatrics from almost every viewpoint. This is my dream come true, to be able to serve adults and children that need advice, and start solving their problems now ! Find me on Health Tap, lets discuss your clinical problems, answer your questions, and hopefully start you on the road to a healthier life with you or your children.

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.

There is a real risk here but impossible to place a number on that - all you can do is be vigilant and look for signs of illness related to food borne illness- bloating, diarrhea, malaise, muscle aches, fever, if severe infection, headache, neck stiffness, lethargy, and convulsions… the incubation is long, if you have no S/S of food poisoning or fever, you are OK if a month passes and no symptoms

Listeria cannot be passed via breast milk. Direct contact could cause infection if the mother inadvertently contaminated her baby with infected secretions (hand/mouth) , however this transmission is very unlikely when good hand washing practices are in effect
