Contemporary Pediatrics;Jul2007, Vol. 24 Issue 7, p116
The author comments on the long-term care of pediatric patients. He notes that a pediatrician should discuss topics like feeding, burping and jaundice with nervous parents. According to the author, a few patients have uneventful childhoods, but for most there are lots of bumps and bruises which require pediatric intervention. The author feels it is very important for pediatricians to emotionally bond with patients when possible.
