A few months ago, I spent some time with a researcher studying concierge
pediatric practices. She had clearly done a lot of her homework and I thought
she had a very valid topic to examine.
Well, she's looking for more input. If you practice _some_ kind of concierge
medicine (cash only, hybrid, subscription, you name it), she'd love to speak
What diagnois should I use if a parent brings in their baby to have his circumcision checked but no problem was found?
