Quite in contrast, its use supports the development of healthy children and early recognition of problems that can lead to better treatment of disorders by a pediatrician or family practitioner.

In cooperation with our Advisory Board of internationally recognized medical doctors and health scientists, I would like to improve the quality of pediatric checkups via this internet site in order to ensure children’s health and to lower the frequency of illnesses whose late recognition and treatment can be avoided. It is my hope that the use of this site and the application of its advise will have beneficial effects on your children.
