Ask parents anywhere and they will discuss with you the joys and stresses of their unpaid, 24/7 job. Just as many of those parents will tell you about moments when the common sense and medical expertise of their pediatricians saved them from a full-blown parenting meltdown.
This week's installment of Patch's "Readers' Choice" survey is aimed not merely at casting a vote for your favorite pediatrician, but also getting you to comment about the moments when that doctor made you feel grateful for having them on speed-dial. Whether a true life-saving emergency or a simple, reassuring discussion with you or your child, that relationship is a bond that reinforces a commitment to healthy living and good choices. So make your choice known!
As we continue Patch's weekly commitment to highlighting the people, places and products that make life in our towns easier, you are the key. We need your votes and comments about your experiences. So cast your ballots until noon Friday and we will follow up with a story on the winners and other local runners-up.
