The doctor is in

If you've ever wandered into the maze of pediatric subspecialties, you may wonder: What do all these people do? And are they just making up job titles now to get extra referral money? The American Academy of Pediatrics wants you to know that each and every one of those pediatric variations is absolutely necessary to your child's health, and in the interest of sorting out the pediatric endocrinologists from the pediatric gastroenterologists, the organization has made a nifty bunch of fact sheets available on its website. Get the lowdown on everything from pediatric allergists to pediatric urologists. The AAP site has some other nice information for families, including a reading checkup guide and a medical library. Best of all, you don't even need a copay to get it.
