I am a mom with five kids and for better or worse plenty of experience at the doctor's office. I've dealt with everything from ear infections to misdiagnoses of severe hearing loss to multiple allergies. Wanting to connect to and inspire other moms I wrote Little Patient Big Doctor: One Mother's Journey. Now I speak to groups about trusting our gut, advocating for our children and being open to all options.

  • This question helps your doctor to keep an open mind and encourages your doctor to try to look at a situation from another perspective.
