Study: Parents' patience pays off for pediatric patients
Philadelphia Inquirer, March 7, 2008
A study by researchers at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia has found that kids who consistently see the same doctor during their first six months are more likely to get recommended health screenings by age two. The screenings check for common and often treatable illnesses that can have long term health consequences if unaddressed. Kids from urban and low-income families are most at risk from not receiving care from the same doctor, researchers said.
