An eye-opening portrayal of the dismal state of Pediatric care.

Parents Beware:

The most dangerous place for children to visit are not schools or playgrounds but doctor's offices and hospitals. A Board Certified pediatrician with over 15 years of experience exposes the darkest secrets of his profession. Far from being the lucid application of scientific principles in the patient’s best interest, the practice of Pediatrics is often driven by the fear of lawsuits and the desire to please parents; hampered by human fallibility and time constraints; and tainted by conflicts of interest and greed.

Suffer the Children is an eye-opening confession, a candid portrayal of the unsatisfactory state of affairs in pediatric care, revealing the wide gulch that separates evidence-based precepts from the actual practice of Pediatrics.

This is what pediatricians have said about the most controversial book on their profession in over 20 years:

"Absolutely marvellous! Brilliant and beautifully written."

"This isn't a book for the faint-of-heart, or for those who wish to blithely continue to obey the experts in whom they've trusted their children's care."

"Parents would do well to read this excellent and eloquently written book before they next take their child to the pediatrician..."
