PARENT EDUCATION

This page is dedicated to helping to keep families up-to-date with the latest information.

Patient Information Sheets

All of our patient information sheets have been authored by the doctors here at Happy and Healthy Pediatrics.  We have invested considerable time in researching, consulting specialists and incorporating our clinical experience and judgment to create these resources.  Please take a few moments to review our useful handouts. Also, keep in mind that our recommended Pharmacy, Franwin Pharmacy, has a dedicated shelf for Happy and Healthy Pediatrics' patients that carries all of the items recommended in these handouts for your convenience.
