I live in a remote area w/out many docs. I would like a 2nd opinion on my child. Are their docs who will review out of area charts?

Technical issues: It may be difficult for one of us to review an entire chart in this format (due to character and time limitations), but it is entirely possible for one to personally consult with you online to review a specific topic or condition. ...Read more

What is the doctors opinion about a child crying and felling afraid from entering the school class for 3weeks in psychology?

Anxiety: While it is not "normal" to feel that way, it certainly does happen.It is a real fear that should not be belittled, punished, or the child should not be forced to go to the class with these fears.This child needs help.There is a reason whether it is real or imagined, it is real to the child. School counselors, parents, physicians must be involved at first.Then likely a physician and therapist. ...Read more

What's your opinion on moringa olfeira? I've heard it's great to boost supply and nutritional value of mothers milk but i also read that women of child-bearing age shouldn't take it?

What's your opinion on moringa olfeira? I've heard it's great to boost supply and nutritional value of mothers milk but i also read that women of child-bearing age shouldn't take it?

Not well-studied: It is great for mother to provide breast milk to their infants. There are many health benefits for both involved. However, I do not recommend substances like moringa olfeira because of the lack of data. Does it help, i'm skeptical; could it harm either the baby or mom, not worth the risk. Disclaimer: I am a physician-scientist who likes data. ...Read more

12 year old daughter knee injured, xray showed "crack" doctor said normal for child. Swollen, sore, can't bear weight. How long wait for 2nd opinion?

12 year old daughter knee injured, xray showed "crack" doctor said normal for child. Swollen, sore, can't bear weight. How long wait for 2nd opinion?

Why wait?: If you are not comfortable/confident in what the first doctor has advised you then you should get a second option as soon as you can comfortably get one. There is no reason to wait. If the first doctor was not a pediatric orthopedist then you defiantly need a second option from a pediatric orthopedist. There are several on long island. ...Read more
