Subscribe to Better Health with Direct Care by MD Now

South Florida moms, it’s time to listen up! If taking care of your own health on a more regular basis is on your fall ‘to do’ list (and it really should be), this post is for you…and me. I got a physical at MD Now earlier this summer and pretty much everything looked good, except for one thing: My cholesterol. No matter how much I exercise and try to eat right, those numbers keep on rising.

The COVID-19 Must-Have: A Pediatrician In Your Pocket

Mom-ming in the digital (and pandemic) age definitely has both its perks and drawbacks. We’ve all seen the crowd-sourcing posts in social media moms’ groups. You know the ones… One mom takes a picture of a nasty rash on her baby, then crowd-sources the answers as to what it is. (They usually contain a range of diagnoses from hand, foot and mouth, to poison ivy, and now to COVID-19). Or even the health questions your mother-in-law thinks she has all the answers to. Even though they’re from raising a baby 30+ years ago. While it’s definitely useful to have “a village” helping you raise your child, health is far too important a topic right now to crowd-source or seek answers from non-experts. That’s when a pediatrician in your pocket comes in really handy…
