"This is certainly useful as a quick hands-on documentation tool for the outpatient pediatric practice. Overall, this is a well organized, useful tool for general pediatricians or pediatric trainees."

-- Lois Gesn, MD (Ochsner Health Center - Baton Rouge) Doody's Review


General pediatricians and pediatric residents are the intended audience. Practitioners will find this a useful adjunct for office visit documentation. Residents will find the forms useful reminders for developing competence during their ambulatory rotations in general pediatrics.
