Study: Parents' patience pays off for pediatric patients

Philadelphia Inquirer, March 7, 2008

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.
