Car Seat Recommendations

Welcome to our Patient Education page!

Our team of professionals and staff believe that informed parents are better equipped to make decisions regarding their child's health and well being. For your personal use, we have created an extensive patient library covering an array of educational topics, which can be found on the side of each page or under the Parent Resource Tab. Browse through these diagnoses and treatments to learn more about topics of interest to you. 

As always, you can contact our office to answer any questions or concerns.

As a parent, it is your job to protect your child when riding in a vehicle. Using car seats properly helps keep children safe. But with so many different types of car seats on the market, understanding how to use them correctly can be overwhelming for parents.

Visit the AAP™ Car Seat Safety Information page for guidance on choosing the most appropriate car safety seat for your child.
