Ask a Doctor

Ask a Doctor is a free question-and-answer service about health issues affecting children, from babies to teens. If you have a question, please fill out the online form. Selected questions will be answered on the site every week. Before submitting your question, please search the existing topics to see if your question has already been answered.


Important note

This service is not intended to provide medical advice concerning specific care or treatment. Questions should be general and generic; we will not be able to post answers to questions that are highly specific to your child’s unique medical conditions.

The answers posted cannot be used as a substitute for a consultation with your doctor or other healthcare provider. Seeing your own medical provider is always important in getting your needs and questions addressed.  If you don’t have a medical provider for your child, you can find pediatricians near you.
