Health Information

In today’s interconnected world, busy parents need multiple sources of health information. One place for this health information is during well visits at the office. Another place? Right here.

Check out these recommended books at your local library or book store:

As a part of our quest to treat the whole child, South Lake Pediatrics has gathered a collection of high-quality web information. Many South Lake families have found valuable information within this virtual library. While this information cannot replace the care and advice of your health care provider, we hope that you find them helpful too.

When searching for medical information on the internet, there are a few basics to keep in mind:

  • Look for reputable sources, Examples include the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
  • Look for current updates. Some sites have not been updated for months, and sometimes, years. Some sites aren’t updated at all. Avoid them. 
  • While we have checked the content of the links on this website, we cannot speak to the validity of any additional links within the pages. Use good judgment.
  • If you want further advice pertaining specifically to your child, please make an appointment to speak with your Pediatrician or Pediatric Nurse Practitioner. Treatment for certain conditions may vary depending on each patient’s individual health and circumstances.
