Dr. Dad

Your children don’t come with instruction manuals. Shouldn’t there be a manual that outlines the essential health and safety information needed to care for your child. That is what Dr. Dad is all about.

Topics covered include well child, sick child, safe child, and injured child. Come and learn how to better care for your child.
