What happens if you  file a complaint with the american board of pediatrics?

Good question: I don't see a way to file a complaint with abp. However, if you really feel that your pediatrician has done something wrong, please start a conversation with him/her. Pediatricians are extremely interested in helping your child and can even suggest second opinions. The abp maintains specialty certification, the worst they could do was revoke certificaiton, but not a medical license to practice. ...Read more

Are clipboards at pediatrics offices germy?

Yes: Almost everything in the pediatric office carries germs, including books, toys and even the doctor's stethoscope. Most offices try to clean these items but it would be very difficult to clean everything between each patient. Hand washing is a good idea when you leave using soap and water or hand sanitizer which should be available in each room. ...Read more
